Indians Top Dust Devils Despite Late Surge

by Dust Devils Media Relations

The Tri-City Dust Devils gave up three walks, threw three wild pitches and allowed five runs in the sixth inning in a 6-4 loss to the Spokane Indians Friday Night at Gesa Stadium. For the second straight night the Dust Devils (11-17) held an early 2-1 lead over Spokane (20-8), but they weren't able to hold on to win the game.  

The Dust Devils made a surge in the ninth inning. Shortstop Josh Fuentes and right fielder Richard Prigatano both walked before a two-run double from third baseman Shane Hoelscher cut the Indians lead to 6-4. But the rally stalled there.

Center fielder Marcos Derkes shined offensively for the Dust Devils. Derkes went 2-for-3 and scored two runs. He was also hit by a pitch and had a stolen base.

Tri-City starter Blake Shouse (1-3) looked to be in top form prior to the sixth inning. He finished the night after 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks. He struck out two while he took the loss.

Derek Thompson (2-4) lasted five innings in his start for the Indians. He allowed two runs on six hits and had six strikeouts in the win.

The Dust Devils and Indians will play the second game of their three game set Saturday night at Gesa Stadium. The game will be sponsored by U.S. Linen and Uniform and all 22-ounce Coca-Cola Products will be just a dollar. The Dust Devils will send out right-hander Logan Sawyer for his second start of the season. Sawyer will duel with Spokane righty Reed Garrett. Great seats for Saturday's game are still available. Tickets can be purchased by visiting dustdevilsbaseball.com or by calling (509) 544-8789.
