Dust Devils offense falters in 8-1 loss to Eugene

By the Tri-City HeraldJune 22, 2013 

The Tri-City Dust Devils have proven they can come from behind. But the team’s starting pitchers haven’t been giving the team much of a chance to hold a lead.

The Dust Devils fell to 4-5 with an 8-1 Northwest League loss to the Eugene Emeralds at PK Park. Tri-City starter Ryan Warner allowed six runs — five earned — in five innings as the Ems took an 8-0 lead after six innings.

Dust Devils starting pitchers are just 1-4 on the season and have allowed 29 earned runs in 47 innings for a 5.55 ERA.

Sean Dwyer drove in Tri-City’s only run with a seventh-inning RBI double, scoring Michael Tauchman. That was one of just four hits by the Dust Devils.
