Spink’s scoreless streak snapped in independent pro league
The left-handed relief pitcher gave up a two-out double in the eighth inning that scored a runner from first, snapping his 12.2-inning scoreless streak.
It was the first run he had allowed since July 3, stretching a dozen appearances.
Spink, of Chugiak High fame, has a 3-4 record and 3.85 ERA in 32 games this season in the American Association.
The fourth-year professional pitcher has appeared in 126 career games, the sixth most among Alaskans in the minor leagues. Last month he passed Ryan Shaver  of Fairbanks.
The only Alaska pitchers to throw in more pro games are Chris Mabeus , Marshall Boze , Corey Madden , Chad Bentz  and Joey Newby .
