Konner Wade fell to 0-7 on the season despite what was probably his best outing as a pro. Wade lasted a season-high six innings and allowed two runs -- one earned -- on two hits. He struck out three and did not walk a batter. Unfortunately, the Dust Devils went 0-for-7 at the plate with runners in scoring position.
Outfielder Michael Tauchman went 3-for-4 with a double to raise his average to .308. The 22-year-old 10th-round draft pick out of Bradley University (which also produced Rob Scahill) hasn't shown a whole lot of power, but does boast an impressive .395 on-base percentage in his first professional season.
Starting pitcher Carlos Polanco allowed three runs -- two earned -- on two hits and four walks in four innings of work. He struck out three.
