VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Cameron Perkins hit a two-run homer in the third inning, and Jake Anchia doubled twice as the Everett AquaSox beat the Vancouver Canadians 4-2 on Friday. With the victory, the AquaSox swept the three-game series.

Joey Gerber struck McGregory Contreras out with a runner on first to end the game for his second save of the season.

The home run by Perkins scored Connor Kopach to give the AquaSox a 2-1 lead.

The AquaSox later tacked on a run in both the fifth and ninth innings. Kopach scored on a double in both the fifth and ninth innings.

Penn Murfee (1-0) got the win with 21⁄3 innings of scoreless, two-hit relief while Vancouver starter Jose Espada (0-2) took the loss in the Northwest League game.

The six extra-base hits for Everett included a season-high five doubles.

The Canadians squandered some scoring chances, leaving 12 runners on base in the loss.
