Tri-City Dust Devils

Dust Devils throw three-hit shutout against AquaSox, eye series draw tonight

Tri-City Herald

Thomas Cosgrove gave up three hits over five innings and three relievers combined to no-hit the Everett AquaSox through the final four frames as the Tri-City Dust Devils won in shutout fashion, 4-0, on Friday night in Everett.

The Dust Devils (13-10 second half, 33-28 overall) looked to even up the four-game series in Saturday’s finale. They host the Spokane Indians for three games beginning Sunday.

Kelvin Melean hit a little-league home run in the top of the first — a one-out triple that he came around to score on because of a fielding error by the center fielder — and Tre Carter singled home Chris Mattison with two outs in the inning to give Tri-City a 2-0 lead out of the gates. Carter was the only player for either team to record a multi-hit game, also collecting a leadoff single in the eighth.

Mark Zimmerman fired two flawless innings of relief behind Cosgrove, recording four strikeouts. Andres Munoz allowed a walk and struck out two in the eighth and Trevor Megill worked a 1-2-3 ninth, punching out two as well.
