Tri-City Dust Devils

Dust Devil bats go quiet in 4th straight loss

Stephen Woods and Raffi Vizcaino held the slumping Tri-City bats to just three hits as the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes beat the Dust Devils 6-2 Saturday at Gesa Stadium.

The Dust Devils (8-15 second half) have lost four straight — six of their last seven — and are now nine games out of the Northwest League North division lead with 15 games left in the regular season.

Tri-City put early runs up on Salem-Keizer starter Woods (1-0), with a sacrifice fly by Fernando Tatis Jr. scoring Kyle Overstreet in the second and a fielding error scoring Buddy Reed in the third after he hit a two-out double. But Woods battled and held the Dust Devils hitless in his final two innings to get through five with just the one unearned run scored against him, and Vizcaino kept the Dust Devils from getting anything going by allowing just one hit over his 4 inning save.

Heath Quinn had RBI singles in the first and third innings to get the Volcanoes (10-13) off to a fast start in a game they never trailed.

Padres top draft pick Cal Quantirll (0-2) was handed his second loss in as many starts. He gave up 3 runs — all earned — on six hits in 3 2/3 innings.

The Dust Devils and Volcanoes will continue their five-game series at 7:15 p.m. Sunday.
