The Tri-City Dust Devils (4-10) broke a 9 game skid with a 6-3 win Wednesday night against the Eugene Emeralds (9-5).
“It’s a trap a little bit to start chasing wins,” said Tri-City Manager Andy Schatzley. “The bottom line for me is just about every team is going to have a 3- stretch at some point in a 120 game season. For us, we’re unfortunate it’s a bit more glaring right out of the gate.”
In the opening weeks, the Dust Devils had three injuries and three players get promoted in the Angels affiliate program. That left the High A Dust Devils with new players stepping up and players stepping in to new roles.
“As our brand of baseball stabilizes and as our roster stabilizes a little bit,” said Schatzley, “the record will take care of itself.”
After being held scoreless in game one of the six game series on Tuesday, the Dust Devils got the bats going in the 5th inning Wednesday night.
