Volcanoes win 11-10, hand AquaSox 6th straight loss

KEIZER, Ore. — The Everett AquaSox will be happy to put the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes in their rearview mirror.

The Volcanoes rallied late to beat the Sox 11-10 in a Monday night marathon, completing a five-game series sweep.

Everett, which didn’t even have a lead in the first four games of the series, led from the start Monday. But the Volcanoes repeatedly came from behind to stay close, then finally surged past the Sox with four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. Everett lost despite scoring more runs Monday (10) than it did in the the previous four games combined (nine).

Jeremy Sy and Leonardo Rojas did the primary damage for Salem-Keizer (12-6 second half, 35-21 overall). Sy finished 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI, while Rojas went 4-for-5 with two doubles and three runs.

Both Sy and Rojas were involved in the decisive eighth inning. Everett entered the inning leading 10-7, but Sy’s RBI single to left began the rally. Then Rojas followed by lining a gapper to left-center, bringing two runs home to tie it. The Volcanoes then loaded the bases with one out, thanks to an error and a hit batter, and Brandon Bednar’s sacrifice fly to shallow center field brought home Rojas with what proved to be the winning run.

Raymundo Montero then locked down the ninth to earn his 11th save.

Everett (8-10, 31-25) squandered a great performance by Justin Seager, who went 4-for-5 with four RBI.

Everett starting pitcher Lars Huijer had an uncharacteristically rough outing. Huijer, who came into the game with a 1.49 ERA and a 25 2/3 innings scoreless streak, lost his scoreless streak before recording his first out. He ended up allowing 11 hits and five runs — four earned — in 4 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out two as he took a no decision.
