AquaSox sweep doubleheader from Dust Devils

PASCO — The Everett AquaSox swept a Northwest League baseball doubleheader Monday night, defeating the Tri-City Dust Devils 4-0 in the first game and 7-1 in 12 innings in the nightcap.

In sweeping the three-game series Everett held the Dust Devils to just two runs over 28 innings.

Everett’s Justin Seager had three hits in Monday’s nightcap, and his bases-loaded walk in the 12th inning* broke a 1-1 tie. Everett went on to add five more runs in the frame.

Richard White (3-2) earned the win for Everett after throwing 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. He retired all four hitters he faced.

In the opener, Carlton Tanabe hit a bases-loaded triple in the first inning to give Everett a 3-0 lead. The AquaSox increased their advantage to 4-0 in the sixth when Kyle Petty’s RBI double drove in Austin Wilson, who had singled.

Wilson, recently named the NWL player of the Week for Aug. 19-25, extended his hitting streak to eight games before going 0-for-4 in the second game.

Starting pitcher Nate Koneski (2-1) earned the win in the opener, allowing just two hits in five shutout innings.

Everett has Tuesday off. The Sox open a three-game series in Spokane on Wednesday.
