Ems drop fourth straight to Devils.

Byline: The Register-Guard

PASCO, Wash. - Tri-City jumped all over Eugene for five runs in the first three innings, and the Dust Devils handed the Emeralds a 9-2 loss, their fourth straight in the five-game series.

The loss dropped the Ems 2 1/2 games behind Salem-Keizer, which defeated Vancouver 8-1 on Thursday.

The Ems were never in this one, giving up an RBI triple to Patrick Rose and an RBI single to former Thurston High standout Johnny Bowden in the first inning to fall behind 2-0. Derek Kinzler scored James Sims with a single in the second inning, and the Bowden scored on a throwing error by Eugene third baseman Derek Shunk and Alexis Lara balked home Leonardo Reyes in the third inning to make it 5-0.

Eugene couldn't manage much offense against Tri-City starter Kenneth Durst, who allowed just three hits and only one run, on a fourth-inning home run by Matthew Clark, in five innings of work. The Dust Devils' bullpen did the rest, allowing just three more hits for the rest of the game.

Logan Gelbrich scored Eugene's only other run on a wild pitch by Tri-City reliever Bradley McAtee.

Clark went 3-for-5 and Blake Tekotte went 2-for-5 for the Ems. Sims went 3-for-5 for the Dust Devils, who also got two RBIs from Bowden.
