SPOKANE. Wash. — Squan Johnson hit his second home run of the season on Sunday, capping a solid weekend that saw the East Bladen graduate go 4-for-12 and raise his batting average to .179 on the season.

Johnson, who is with the Spokane Indians’ Class A short-season team in the Northwest League — an affiliate of the Texas Rangers — opened the week Monday, July 14, as a defensive replacement in centerfield. It was the first action he’d seen since a pinch-running assignment on July 10.

On Tuesday, July 15, Johnson got his first start since July 4 and took the collar, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts and he spent the next day on the bench.

On Thursday, Johnson was used as a defensive replacement in left field and got one at-bat, grounding out in the eighth inning.

Friday, Johnson got another start and began a three-game weekend hitting streak with a 1-for-5, scored a run and stole a base. On Saturday, he went 2-for-3 with a double, walk and scored a run. On Sunday, Johnson was 1-for-4, tagging a solo home run.

In his last 10 games, Johnson is hitting .214. For the season, he has raised his batting averaging to .179 (12-for-67) with two doubles, two home runs, four RBI, five stolen bases and eight runs scored.

The Indians remain in first place in the North Division with a 24-13 record.
