An early deficit was too much for the Tri-City Dust Devils (13-12, 29-34) to overcome on Monday at Ron Tonkin Field as the team lost 6-4 to the Hillsboro Hops (14-10, 38-24). Logan Driscoll had two hits and scored two runs in the loss for the Dust Devils.
The Hops were able to build a sizable lead early. In the first inning Hillsboro scored five runs with two outs off of Tri-City starter Jason Reynolds. The Hops added an additional run to their edge in the second inning to expand their lead to six. The Dust Devils chipped away at Hillsboro's advantage throughout the game, pulling within two runs in the eighth inning. In the top of the ninth inning Tri-City had two runners aboard, but the comeback bid ultimately fell short.
The Dust Devils will return home to begin a seven-game homestand starting on Tuesday. Tri-City will send left-hander Jason Blanchard to the mound in the first game of the three-game series against the Vancouver Canadians. Tuesday will be Ladies Night at Gesa Stadium. Great seats are available by calling the team's office at (509) 544-8789 or by going to www.dustdevilsbaseball.com to purchase tickets.
