SPOKANE, Wash. -- After a shaky start, and thanks to some stellar defense, David Perez earned his first win since 2012 as the Spokane Indians topped the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 11-5 on a record-breaking season finale night in front of 7,072 fans at Avista Stadium on Friday night.

With the night's attendance, the largest crowd of the season, the Indians broke two team attendance records. The Indians welcomed 193,865 fans through the gates throughout 37 games this season, breaking the overall attendance record originally set in 2007. Spokane also broke another all-time record by averaging 5,240 fans to each game, the highest total in the team's 112-year history.

Perez started the game by loading the bases with no outs, and would allow two runs. After a pop fly, Luke Tendler caught a fly out in right field and gunned down Christian Arroyo at the plate for a double play to end the threat. Perez would load the bases with no outs again in the second, but the Volcanoes again failed to capitalize in a huge way after Hunter Cole was called out at home. Perez finished with six punch outs in five innings while allowing five hits.

The Indians put the game away in the third inning after Juremi Profar connected on a two-RBI double followed by a two-run moonshot from Fernando Vivili. Vivili finished with two hits to help push his average to .219 on the season.

Spokane started hot, collecting three runs in the first inning from a Jose Trevino double and singles from Tendler and Josh Morgan. It was Trevino's team-high 22nd double of the year. Chuck Moorman hit a pinch-hit solo home run in the eighth inning.

Pepe Cardona made his first appearance since suffering a concussion on August 13 in Tri-City. He went 1-for-2 after he pinch hit for Tendler.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- With 7,072 fans at tonight's regular season finale, the largest crowd of the season, the Indians are excited to announce that two new team attendance record have been broken.

Spokane also broke another all-time record by averaging 5,240 fans to each game, the highest total in the team's 112-year history.

“We're grateful to receive this amount of support from the community,” said Josh Roys, Spokane Indians Vice President of Tickets. “We strive to bring Spokane a great family-friendly atmosphere, and these attendance numbers show we're reaching our goals.”

Avista Stadium packed in over 7,000 fans five times throughout the summer and had over 6,000 on 12 separate occasions. On Friday, July 4th, the Indians entertained 7,064 fans to celebrate the nation's Independence Day. Spokane's attendance is second in the nation for Short-Season baseball clubs. The New York Mets affiliate, the Brooklyn Cyclones, own the top spot.
