EVERETT — The Everett Merchants improved to 7-2 this season with a 12-3 nonleague victory over Laces Baseball Academy at Everett Memorial Stadium on Friday.

Everett starting pitcher Ryan Walker, a graduate of Arlington High School, gave up no runs and just one hit while striking out four and walking two in five innings of work to pick up the win for the Merchants.

Offensively, the Merchants were led by Central Washington University’s Jaykob Sells. Sells, a former Everett Community College player, batted 2-for-2 with an RBI double in the sixth inning and an RBI single in the seventh.
