Errors on the Emeralds would bite them on the rear end as it would cost them game three of the series against the Tri-City Dust Devils 5-4.

The Emeralds would score a pair of runs in the third on a two-RBI single by RF Carter Williams to score 1B Robert Emery and 2B Simon Whiteman 2-0.

Half an inning later, the Dust Devils cut their deficit in half on an RBI groundout by C Christian Molfetta to score LF Casey Dana 2-1.

In the fourth, 3B Luis Toribio drove in the run back on an RBI single to center to drive in C Pat Bailey 3-1.

Tri-City answered back on a run scored on a wild pitch by RHP Carson Seymour in the fourth to allow CF D’Shawn Knowles to score 3-2.

In the same inning, the Dust Devils collected their lone lead of the game on an RBI infield single by 3B Kyle Kasser along with a fielding error by Seymour to allow a second run to score 4-3.

Two innings later, the Dust Devils were able to jump to a two-run lead on an RBI groundout by 1B Christian Sepulveda to cash in RF Joe Stewart to increase their lead 5-3.

With the bases loaded in the seventh, Toribio drove in CF Luis Matos from third on an RBI sacrifice fly to center to cut it down to a 5-4 game, but were not able to bust a comeback win.

The Ems will look to rebound from their woes as they will have LHP Nick Swiney on the mound. First pitch is at 7:05 PM, 6:50 pregame show on 95.3 The Score.
