YAKIMA -- Winning the Northwest League East Division first-half championship hasn't spoiled the Tri-City Dust Devils.
After clinching the division Sunday, Tri-City recorded its fifth consecutive win and first series sweep this season with a 6-3 win Tuesday over the Yakima Bears at County Stadium.
The Dust Devils (23-16) took a 2-0 lead in the fifth with RBIs from Blake McDade and David Hernandez, then added another run in the sixth on an RBI single from Jared Simon.
They got three more in the seventh after Brian Humphries hit a two-out, two-run single and scored on a wild pitch by Adam Osteen to make it 6-0.
