G.K. Young launched a three-run homer and the Tri-City Dust Devils never trailed in a 9-3 victory over the Spokane Indians Saturday night in Spokane.

Young’s third home run of the season cleared the left-field wall and capped the scoring on a six-run third inning to put the Dust Devils (31-36) up 7-0.

A triple by Buddy Reed in the fourth —his third of the season — scored Nate Easley, then a wild pitch by Spokane reliever Mark Vasquez scored Reed for the Dust Devils’ ninth and final run of the game.

Indians starter Kyle Cody (2-5) got stuck with eight of the runs — all earned — in his 3+ innings.

Tri-City starter Eric Lauer was quietly effective, scattering two hits and a walk while allowing just one run over 4 innings. Adrian De Horta (2-1) threw 4 innings of solid long relief to pick up the win, giving up two unearned runs.

The Dust Devils will try for a three-game series sweep against the Indians (28-39) at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
