A fantastic performance by the pitching staff was not enough on Wednesday night at Gesa Stadium as the Tri-City Dust Devils (14-13, 30-35) lost in ten innings 1-0 to the Vancouver Canadians (12-15, 27-38). The Dust Devils fell to the Canadians despite allowing only three hits.
A prime opportunity to take the lead slipped away from Tri-City in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Dust Devils had Logan Driscoll at third base with no outs, but he was ultimately left stranded. One night removed after retiring 18 straight batters, Tri-City eclipsed that number on Wednesday with a stretch were 20 straight Canadians were turned away at the plate. McGregory Contreras delivered what became the game-winning hit for Vancouver with a RBI single in the top of the tenth inning.
Left-hander Ethan Elliott will start the rubber game of the three-game series on Thursday night. The Canadians will counter with right-hander Alex Nolan. It will be Viñeros de Tri-City Jersey Auction Night. Great seats are available by calling the team's office at (509) 544-8789 or by going to www.dustdevilsbaseball.com to purchase tickets.
