PASCO — Adam Martin hit a two-run double in the seventh inning and three Everett AquaSox pitchers combined to scatter seven hits as the Sox defeated the Tri-City Dust Devils 3-1 on Sunday night.

The Sox tied the game at one in the top of the fourth inning on consecutive doubles by Corey Simpson and Phillips Castillo off Dust Devils starter Ryan Castellani.

Martin, Simpson and Andy Peterson each had two hits for the AquaSox.

Dylan Thompson (3-2) took the loss for Tri-City.

The Dust Devils eliminated the AquaSox from playoff contention on Saturday night.
