AquaSox drop 3rd straight in crucial series with Emeralds

Everett loses 4-1 and falls to 3.5 games behind Eugene with eight games remaining.

EUGENE — Ismael Munguia hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning as Eugene beat the Everett AquaSox 4-1 on Thursday night at PK Park, the Emeralds’ third straight win in the series.

The AquaSox fell to 3.5 games behind the first-place Emeralds and remained two games behind second-place Spokane with eight games remaining in the season. The top two teams at the end of the regular season will play for the High-A West championship.

Everett took an early lead when Matt Scheffler plated Noelvi Marte on a sacrifice fly in the top of the second inning.

Eugene quickly tied the game up when Marcio Luciano tripled and scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the frame.

The game remained tied until Munguia’s big hit in the seventh. Jairo Pomares added an insurance run for the Emeralds with a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth.

Marte doubled, and Connor Hoover and Cade Marlowe each singled for the only hits for Everett (60-51). Adam Hill allowed three runs, one earned, on five hits in seven innings while striking out seven and walking two.

Munguia finished 2-for-4 with two RBI, and Ricardo Genoves went 2-for-3 for Eugene (64-48).

The AquaSox and Emeralds play a doubleheader on Friday to end the five-game series. Everett finishes the season with six games at home against Spokane, beginning on Tuesday.
