AquaSox suffer key loss to Indians

Everett digs an early hole and falls two games back of Tri-City after an 8-5 defeat.

EVERETT — A four-run third inning eventually doomed the AquaSox, as Everett dropped a key Northwest League game and series against the Spokane Indians, falling 6-5 on Thursday at Funko Field.

After Tri-City topped Vancouver, 2-0, the AquaSox (31-35, 13-15 second half) fell two games behind the Dust Devils (31-35, 15-13 second half) for the final playoff spot in North division.

Kellen Strahm put the Indians on the board with a two-run double to right field in the third, then Luis Asuncion punched in another run on an RBI single to right field, which also allowed David Garcia to score after Trent Tingelstad’s throw sailed past the infield to cap a four-run third inning for the Indians and put Spokane up 4-0.

The AquaSox cut the lead in half with Tingelstad’s two-run double in the bottom of the third, but Cristian Inoa extended the lead to 5-2 after his solo homer to left field in the top of the fourth.

Brennon Kaleiwahea inched the AquaSox back with a two-run homer to center field in the fourth, but Francisco Ventura countered with an RBI double in the eighth.

Connor Hoover plated a run with an RBI groundout as a pinch-hitter for Cash Gladfelter in the eighth, but that’s all the Aquasox could muster over the final five innings and the Indians tacked on two insurance runs with Strahm’s RBI double and Garcia’s RBI single in the ninth.
