AquaSox eliminated from playoff contention with loss

Everett loses 6-3 to Spokane and won’t be playing for the High-A West championship.

EVERETT — A roller-coaster season for the Everett AquaSox won’t end in the playoffs.

Isaac Collins homered twice and drove in three runs as the Spokane Indians beat Everett 6-3 on Wednesday night to clinch the final High-A West playoff spot.

The loss, combined with the Eugene Emeralds’ 6-0 win over the Tri-City Dust Devils earlier in the evening, eliminated the AquaSox from a possible postseason berth. Eugene and Spokane will play a five-game series for the league championship beginning next Tuesday.

Down 6-1 in the bottom of the sixth, the AquaSox scored twice to cut into the Indians’ lead. Alberto Rodriguez singled and advanced to second on a Dariel Gomez walk. Andy Thomas followed with a single to load the bases with nobody out. Kennie Taylor scored Rodriguez with a sacrifice fly and Joseph Rosa followed with a one-out double to score Gomez. With runners on second and third, Connor Hoover struck out looking and Noelvi Marte lined out to center to end the threat.

Thomas finished 3-for-4 and Joseph Rosa had two hits for Everett (61-54). Marte went 1-for-5 with a double.

Brenton Doyle went 4-for-5 with an RBI, and Hunter Stovall went 3-for-5 with two RBI for Spokane (65-49).

The AquaSox had a sizzling 51-26 record 77 games into the season, but have gone 10-28 over the past 38 games to fall out of contention, in part due to a rash of promotions from the team that started the season so well.
