AquaSox swept by Indians in doubleheader

Everett drops a pair of one-run games as the race tightens in the High-A West standings.

EVERETT — The red-hot Spokane Indians swept the Everett AquaSox by scores of 3-2 and 5-4 in a doubleheader on Friday night at Funko Field.

In the opener, Niko Decolati drove in Isaac Collins with a walk-off base hit in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Indians the 3-2 win.

Everett jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on solo home runs from Connor Hoover, Dariel Gomez and Victor Labrada, but Spokane scored a run in the fourth and two more in the sixth to force extra innings. The game was originally scheduled for seven innings, but needed an extra frame to determine the winner.

In the nightcap, Decolati came up with the clutch hit again, breaking a 4-4 tie with a run-scoring single in the top of the fifth inning that proved to be the game-winner.

Everett mounted a rally in the bottom of the seventh inning, but Joseph Rosa struck out with the bases loaded to end the game.

Gomez homered in both ends of the doubleheader for the AquaSox. Marlowed added a two-run homer in Game 2.

Spokane (55-45) has won 13 of its past 14 games and four the first five games against Everett (57-43) in the seven-game series. The Indians are just two games back of the first-place AquaSox and 1.5 games behind the second-place Eugene Emeralds. The top two finishers in the division standings will play for the High-A West championship.
