PASCO — The Everett AquaSox are finding runs tough to come by these days.
The Sox were shut out for the third consecutive game Sunday night, losing to the Tri-City Dust Devils 5-0 in a Northwest League contest.
With the loss, Everett’s record dropped to 12-12.
The AquaSox managed just six hits in the game — all of them singles — off four Tri-City pitchers. Angel Acevedo (2-1) earned the win. The 19-year-old right-hander pitched the first six innings, allowing just five hits and striking out four. He did not walk a batter.
Starting pitcher Orlando Razo (0-2) took the loss for Everett. He gave up five runs — three of them earned — in 5.2 innings.
Olivier Basabe hit a two-run homer in the third inning to give Acevedo and the Dust Devils all the runs they would need. Aldemar Burgos, who collected a pair of triples in the game, scored on Basabe’s home run.
