AquaSox blank Dust Devil to win season-opener

Everett capitalizes on a slew of Tri-City mistakes to win 5-0.

PASCO — The Everett AquaSox capitalized on five errors, six wild pitches and two hit batters to defeat the Tri-City Dust Devils 5-0 in their season-opener on Friday evening at Gesa Stadium.

The AquaSox struck first without the benefit of a hit in the third inning. With two outs, Miguel Perez was hit by a pitch and advanced to second when Trent Tingelstad reached on a fielder’s choice. Back-to-back wild pitches from Dust Devils starter Nick Thwaits allowed Perez to score to give Everett a 1-0 lead.

Everett tacked on two runs in the fifth. Cesar Izturis Jr. doubled and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Perez. DeAires Moses walked, stole second and scored on a single by Austin Shenton to push the AquaSox’s lead to 3-0.

Everett capped its scoring in the top of the ninth when Izturis Jr. walked and scored on an error and Moses scored on a wild pitch.

Moses went 0-for-3, but stole four bases in the game. Shenton, Izturis Jr. and Patrick Frick each had one hit for the AquaSox.

Everett starter Juan Mercedes pitched five scoreless innings to earn the win. He allowed just three hits, walked one and struck out one.
