AquaSox top Dust Devils on walk-off walk

Jack Larsen draws the game-winning free pass in the bottom of the ninth to lift Everett to a 4-3 win.

EVERETT — Jack Larsen drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth inning, scoring Joseph Rosa, and the Everett AquaSox earned a close 4-3 win over the Tri-City Dust Devils on Saturday evening at Funko Field.

With the game tied at 3-3, newly promoted first baseman Dariel Gomez was hit by a pitch by the Dust Devils’ Erick Julio to open the bottom of the ninth inning and was replaced by pinch runner Joseph Rosa. After Connor Hoover struck out swinging, Rosa stole second base and Cody Grosse drew a walk. Zach DeLoach followed with a walk to load the bases and Julio was replaced on the mound by Luis Alvarado. Patrick Frick struck out looking for the second out before Larsen walked on a full count to end the game.

Larsen and DeLoach each had two hits, including a double, in the game. Gomez doubled and drove in two runs in his first game with the AquaSox.

Reid Morgan started for Everett (41-22) and allowed one run on four hits in 4.1 innings. Fred Villarreal earned the win with 2.1 innings of hitless relief.

Jordyn Adams and Franklin Torres each homered for Tri-City.


Infielder Austin Shenton was promoted from High-A Everett to Double-A Arkansas on Friday. Shenton, a fifth-round pick by the Seattle Mariners in the 2019 draft, hit .295 with 11 home runs, 24 doubles, three triples and 53 RBI in 57 games with the AquaSox. In his first game with Arkansas on Saturday, Shenton went 2-for-4 with a double and a run batted in.
