The Tri-City Dust Devils rallied for three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning Wednesday to beat the Spokane Indians 3-2 at Gesa Stadium in Pasco and avoid being swept for the first time this season.
Spokane (3-3), which scored runs in the first and second innings, held the Dust Devils (3-3) scoreless with solid pitching by Kyle Cody and Reid Anderson through seven innings.
The Indians went to closer Alex Daniele in the eighth, who gave up three runs on two hits.
Josh Magee was hit by a pitch to reach base, and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Magee would score on a Kyle Overstreet fielder’s choice to cut Spokane’s lead in half.
Never miss a local story.
With two out, Hunter Redman hit a ground-ball single to center field to score Boomer White and Overstreet to take the lead.
The Indians got a man to second base in the top of the ninth, but that’s all David Bednar would allow.
The Dust Devils had their chances early on, but three times in the first six innings left a man stranded at third.
Tri-City will travel to Salem-Keizer for a five-game series against the Volcanoes (4-2) starting today.
