A losing streak was snapped Monday as the Volcanoes edged the visiting Tri-City Dust Devils 3-2 at home.

Each club had a home run with one man on base in the second inning, but Salem-Keizer added a run in the sixth.

Starting pitcher Pat Young, who had been with the Volcanoes only about a week, retired the visitors in order in the first inning. So did the Dust Devils’ starter, Ryan Warner.

In the top of the second, a two-out error by shortstop Brandon Bednar put Tri-City’s Alec Meherten on first base. Julian Yan then hit the ball over the right field wall.

The Volcanoes lost no time in responding. Tyler Horan singled to left, and Ryan Tuntland hit his first homer in a Volcano uniform over the left field fence.
