The Spokane Indians started this season off in a way they have not since 1997, extending their season-opening win streak to three games on Fathers Day against the Eugene Emeralds, 5-2, at Avista Stadium. Pitcher Derek Thompson struck out five batters during the game.
Families flocked to Avista Stadium for the 3:30 pm game attended by 4,334 people. All fathers in attendance stood and received a warm round of applause from their loved ones.
The Indians will hope to clench a fourth win on Monday against the Emeralds. The game will begin at 6:30 pm.
