WASHINGTON, PA - The Tri-City ValleyCats (40-39) looked to take a series win against the Washington Wild Things (44-36) fresh off of a one-run, shutout victory against Washington last night. The ‘Cats looked to turn it around with two wins in a row following a five-game skid that knocked them out of first place in the Atlantic Division.

Tri-City ran into trouble on the mound once again. Starting pitcher Bruce Bell (0-2) surrendered ten runs (nine earned) over five innings of work. Washington tallied twelve runs on nineteen hits in Thursday’s contest.

The ValleyCats offense scored more runs than they had in games one and two of the series combined, but it was not enough to secure the series win. After falling into a seven-to-nothing hole in the first, Luis Roman got the scoring started with a solo shot in the top of the second. Brad Zunica would join the party with his tenth home run of the year. The remaining ValleyCats runs came thanks to a Chris Kwitzer RBI single and a Jhon Nunez sacrifice fly.
