AquaSox split doubleheader with Eugene

The split kept Everett reign atop the High-A West standing in tact.

EUGENE, Ore. — The AquaSox maintained a one-game lead over the Eugene Emeralds as the teams split a doubleheader Saturday.

Everett had just three hits in a 3-1 loss during Game 1 of the doubleheader.

Eugene’s Kai-Wei Teng (5-4) tossed a seven-inning complete game and struck out 11 batters. He walked just two and went 6.1 scoreless innings before Matt Scheffler hit a one-out solo home run in the top of the seventh.

Stephen Kolek (3-1) suffered his first loss of the season. He allowed all three Emeralds runs on eight hits and one walk over 4.2 innings, striking out 11.

Brett Auerbach, Marco Luciano and Armani Smith each drove in one run for the Emeralds.

The second game of the day went to extra innings before Everett (56-38) scored three runs in the top of the eighth thanks to a run-scoring error and a two-RBI double by Tyler Keenan to secure a 4-3 victory.

AquaSox starter Jasier Herrera got a no-decision after going four inning and allowing five hits, one run and no walks with six strikeouts. Nate Fisher (1-0) picked up the win after allowing two unearned runs, two hits and one walk over two innings of relief with three strikeouts.

Eugene (56-40) brought the winning run to the plate in the bottom of the eighth after Smith hit an RBI single that made it 4-2 with runners on first and second base and one out. An Everett error loaded the bases and an groundout trimmed the lead to 4-3, but Fisher got Logan Wyatt to fly out into foul territory to seal the game.

Dariel Gomez drove in Everett’s first run and went 1-for-4.

Tyler Schimpf (1-2) was credited with the loss after allowing three unearned runs over two innings.
