Kennewick's Bryant pitches for Dust Devils

August 12, 2013 

Konner Wade deserved better during the Tri-City Dust Devils’ 2-0 loss at Hillsboro on Monday.

The Colorado Rockies’ seventh-round draft pick out of the University of Arizona had his best start of the year, allowing two runs — one earned — on just two hits over six innings but still lost his seventh consecutive decision to fall to 0-7.

The game also featured the professional debut of pitcher Tony Bryant, a Kennewick native and Oregon State product, who threw a scoreless inning in relief of Wade, giving up a hit and a walk with a pair of strikeouts.

The Dust Devils (7-11 second half) dropped into last place, but stayed a game behind first-place Everett (8-10).

Yogey Perez-Ramos hit an RBI grounder to give Hillsboro a 1-0 lead in the first and later scored on Ashley Graeter’s throwing error in the bottom of the sixth to make it 2-0.
