Tri-City finally met a lead it liked in its Northwest League home series against Spokane.
The Dust Devils jumped ahead early like they did each of the previous three nights, but this time they preserved the advantage and collected a 3-0 win over Spokane in Pasco.
The Dust Devils lost the first four games in the six-game series, which concludes Sunday at 7 p.m.
Tri-City scored in the bottom of the first for the fourth consecutive game, jumping ahead 2-0 on Osmy Gregario’s RBI single and Mike Peabody’s run-scoring sacrifice fly, respectively.
