The Tri-City Dust Devils (6-5, 26-23) could not produce at the plate on Sunday night as the team fell to the Boise Hawks 2-0. The shutout was just the third time this season that the Dust Devils were held scoreless in a game.
Boise was able to strike early in the game, scoring the only two runs that they would end up needing in the top of the first inning. Luis Castro had a two-out triple off of Tri-City starter Tom Cosgrove to bring home the first run of the game. Austin Bernard followed with a single to drive in the second run of the inning for the Hawks. The Dust Devils had four opportunities in the game to score with a runner on third base, but the team came away empty-handed each time.
