VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Vancouver Canadians topped the Everett AquaSox 4-1 before a sellout crowd of 6,413 fans at Nat Bailey Stadium Tuesday.
The win for Vancouver (16-11, second half, 37-28 overall) claimed the rubber match of the three-game set with Everett (13-14, 30-35).
The same two teams begin a three-game series at Everett Memorial Stadium tonight at 7:05 p.m.
Everett has now dropped four of five as the Frogs continue to watch their chances of qualifying for the postseason dwindle.
The AquaSox had just three hits and six baserunners.
Zach Logue (3-1) earned the win on the mound for the Canadians as he fanned five and allowed one hit in four innings of relief.
Marcus Reyes and William Ouellette each pitched a perfect inning of relief with Ouellette claiming his 10th save of the season.
The Canadians broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the fourth. Samad Taylor singled, stole second and later scored on a sacrifice fly from Brock Lundquist.
Vancouver added another run in the fifth when Brandon Polizzi reached on a two-out error, stole second, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on another error.
The Canadians tacked on another in the sixth when Lundquist doubled in Mattingly Romanin to make it 4-1.
Meanwhile, Vancouver pitchers at one point set down 11 consecutive Everett hitters. Juan Camacho’s one-out double in the seventh broke the string, but the AquaSox stranded two in the inning.
The teams traded single runs in the third inning.
Everett took the 1-0 lead in the top half of the inning. Ronald Rosario led off with a single and Jansiel Rivera reached on a fielder’s choice when Rosario was cut down at second.
Rivera then came home on a two-out RBI single by Eugene Helder.
The Canadians drew even in the bottom of the inning. Matt Morgan led off with a walk and Reggie Pruitt followed with a single.
After a popup and a flyout, Riley Adams singled to left. That scored Morgan to make it 1-1, but Pruitt was cut down at the plate to end the inning.
Everett reliever David Ellingson struck out the side in the eighth.
