L - Rojas (0-1)

Spokane dropped the deciding game of the Northwest League Championship Series on Sunday evening. And––just like that––the Texas Rangers' minor league campaign comes to a conclusion.
The Indians fell into an early hole as starting pitcher Randol Rojas scuffled and yielded six runs (two earned) over 3.2 innings. He gave up three hits, walked three, and struck out three.
The offense didn't get on the scoreboard until the top of the ninth, when second baseman Santiago Chirino brought home a run with his double. He also singled in the contest.
Ryan Strausborger (1/4, 2B), Jared Hoying (1/4) and Andrew Clark (1/3, BB) had the other hits.
The bullpen was solid in relief of Rojas, though the damage had already been done. Zach Osborne (0.1 IP), Tim Steggall (1.2 IP), Kevin Johnson (1.1 IP) and Colby Killian (1 IP) threw scoreless ball to finish it off.
