SPOKANE, Wash. -- Dylan Moore used all of his power early on, but it wasn't enough as the Spokane offense sputtered towards the finish line to allow the Tri-City Dust Devils to walk away with a 7-3 win over the Indians on Sunday night in front of 4,281 fans at Avista Stadium. 

Moore hit his fifth home run of the season, a three-run shot in the first inning to score LeDarious Clark and Darius Day. Moore leads the team with 27 RBI. Clark, mired in a 4-for-45 slump before first pitch, connected in his first at-bat with a deep double over the Tri-City left fielder's head; Day laid a perfect bunt down the third-base line to reach first. Spokane had four hits in its first five at-bats, but could muster just two the remainder of the contest.

Nick Green made his first start at Avista Stadium since June 21 against the Hillsboro Hops. The 2014 seventh-round draft pick allowed two runs on three hits in four innings of work. The runs broke a three-game scoreless streak for the right hander.

Blake Bass relieved Green after the fourth, allowing three runs in his 2.2 innings of work. Bass struck out three before John Kukururda came on in the latter end of the seventh. Kukuruda loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth, escaping the jam. Jeffrey Springs relieved, but was then tossed after hitting Nick Vilter with a pitch. Ashton Perritt finished the final out for Spokane with a strikeout.

Leon Byrd Jr. reached base three times, collecting a single and two walks in four plate appearances. Yeyson Yrizarri raised his average to .274 with a seventh-inning single. Spokane threatened in the seventh inning with runners on first and second, but Jamie Potts struck out swinging with the tying run on first.

Dust Devils Carlos Belen, Ty France and Austin Allen each homered in the contest.
