The Canadians offense was led by second-year slugger 1B Balbino Fuenmayor who went 3-for-3 with a home run (3) and four RBI to bump his average on the season to .444 (16-for-36). LF Ian Parmley drew three walks on Saturday night scoring all three times he reached base in the victory.
On the mound, LHP Colton Taylor struck out six (6) over his 3 1/3 innings of work giving up two runs on a pair of hits. LHP Bobby Brosnahan pitched 2 2/3 innings for the C's limiting the potent Tri-City offense to just two hits, but three walks helped the Dust Devils plate a pair of runs off of the former University of Michigan Wolverine in the bottom of the 6th inning. RHP Phillip Brua picked up the win going 1 1/3 innings of one hit baseball before RHP Drew Permison came in for his second save of the season.
With the victory, Vancouver improves to 7-2 (.777) on the season and retains top spot in the Northwest League's West Division. It is also the Canadians third straight victory and secure their second straight series victory.
