AquaSox split doubleheader with Emeralds

Everett drops the first game 2-1, but bounces back to win the second game 9-2.

EUGENE — Everett lost the first game 2-1, but rebounded to win the second game 9-2 as the AquaSox split a doubleheader with the Eugene Emeralds on Friday night at PK Park.

Everett will enter its final six-game homestand of the regular season against Spokane on Tuesday trailing the Emeralds by 3.5 games in the standings. With the doubleheader split and the Indians’ 4-1 win over Vancouver, the AquaSox are 2.5 games behind Spokane for second place. The Indians still have 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.

In the opener, Ismael Munguia singled and Carter Aldrete scored on an error by right-fielder Alberto Rodriguez in the bottom of the seventh innings as the Emeralds walked off with the win.

Connor Hoover hit his 18th home run of the season to give the AquaSox a 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth. But Munguia answered with a solo shot in the bottom of the frame to knot the game at 1-1.

Jimmy Joyce started for Everett and allowed only one run on six hits in five innings. Joyce struck out seven and walked one.

In the nightcap, Cade Marlowe hit a two-run home run in the first inning, and Victor Labrada added a run-scoring double as the AquaSox jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead and cruised to the win in the last game of the five-game series.

Labrada finished with three hits, and Justin Lavey had two hits, including a solo home run, and three RBI for Everett (61-52).

Brett Auerbach homered and drove in the only two runs for Eugene (65-49).
