AquaSox suffer walkoff loss to Canadians in series finale

Everett loses 2-1 to Vancouver on a walkoff sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 9th.

HILLSBORO, Ore. — The Vancouver Canadians scored the game-winning run on a ninth-inning sacrifice fly to hand the visiting Everett AquaSox a 2-1 walkoff loss in Sunday’s series finale.

With the game tied 1-1 in the bottom of the ninth, Vancouver cleanup hitter Spencer Horwitz hit a leadoff double and advanced to third base on a groundout. Luis De Los Santos then hit a one-out sacrifice fly to center field to bring home Horwitz for the winning run.

The victory gave the Canadians (15-9) a split of the six-game series. It was the second walkoff loss in four games for the AquaSox (15-9), who fell 5-4 Thursday night on a game-winning single by Horwitz in the bottom of the ninth.

Sunday’s finale was scoreless until the top of the seventh, when Everett’s David Sheaffer doubled and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Connor Hoover. Vancouver tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the seventh on a two-out single by Sebastian Espino that drove in Horwitz.

Juan Then started for the AquaSox and pitched six scoreless innings. The right-hander from the Dominican Republic struck out six batters, while allowing just two hits and no walks.

Isaiah Campbell allowed two runs in 2.2 innings of relief for Everett.

Both teams managed just four hits. Kaden Polcovich went 2-for-4 for the AquaSox, who were limited to four hits for the third time in four games.

The AquaSox begin a 12-game homestand Tuesday night at Funko Field with the opener of a six-game series against the Hillsboro Hops.
