Dust Devils Crank Out 14 Hits in Win over Volcanoes

Posted: Updated:
PASCO, WA - The Tri-City Dust Devils used 14 hits to knock off the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 5-3 Sunday night at Gesa Stadium. The Dust Devils (6-7 2nd half, 20-31 overall) closed out their first home series win since June 25th.


Dust Devils catcher Jordan Parris had a spectacular night. Parris had a pair of go-ahead RBI singles, one in the fifth and one in the seventh that gave the Dust Devils the lead for good. Parris finished the game 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs.

All nine starters in the Tri-City lineup reached base safely with eight different Dust Devils getting a base hit. Center fielder Drew Weeks, designated hitter Shane Hoelscher, third baseman Josh Fuentes, second baseman Sam Bumpers and Parris all had multi-hit games.

Tri-City starter Helmis Rodriguez allowed just two runs, both in the second inning, but he retired nine in a row after that. Rodriguez went six innings and allowed just the two runs on six hits and struck out two. He left the game with the lead, but he would not come away with a decision in the game.

John Sheehan (3-0) pitched 1 1/3 innings in relief of Rodriguez. He allowed an unearned run on two hits and got the win for the Dust Devils. Josh Michalec allowed a ninth inning hit, but it wouldn't stop him from picking up his fourth save of the year.

Volcanoes (8-5 Second Half, 26-25 Overall) starting pitcher Andrew Leenhouts allowed 11 Dust Devils hits. Leenhouts pitched 4 2/3 innings, giving up three runs and a walk with two strikeouts. E.J. Encinosa (3-1) took the loss for Salem-Keizer. Encinosa allowed a run on a hit and two walks.

The Dust Devils, along with the rest of the Northwest League, will take a three day break for the All-Star Game on Tuesday at PK Park in Eugene, Oregon. Pitchers Helmis Rodriguez and Jerad McCrummen, infielder Cesar Galvez and outfielder Marcos Derkes will represent Tri-City at the All-Star game. The Dust Devils will return to Gesa Stadium on Thursday to open up a series with the Vancouver Canadians.
