The Tri-City Dust Devils dropped their second consecutive game Thursday, getting shut out by the Eugene Emeralds 3-0 at PK Park.
The Ems got a second consecutive strong start from Yimmi Brasoban, who hurled five shutout innings, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out five for the win.
Tri-City lefty Jason Aquino pitched well but was victimized by a two-run double by Ryan Miller in the fourth inning and a lack of offensive support. Aquino went six innings allowing three hits, three walks and three runs.
Patrick Hutcheson had two of the Dust Devils’ four hits.
Never miss a local story.
The second of this five-game series starts at 7:05 p.m. today at PK Park.
