Opponent: Vancouver Canadiens

When: 7:05 p.m.

Where: Everett Memorial Stadium

Radio: KSER (90.7 FM)

Pitchers: Everett right-hander Phillip Cullen (0-2, 2.70) vs. Right-hander Chris Maebus (1-3, 2.45)

Long day: The Frogs’ Monday ended about when most folks were getting their Tuesday started. After an 18-inning game and a 4 1/2-hour bus ride from Pasco, the weary AquaSox pulled into Everett a little after 6 a.m.

Many of the players took advantage of the cancellation of batting practice by manager Terry Pollreisz to catch up on the missed sleep.

“I can’t sleep on the bus,” Everett catcher Eddie Olszta said. “I was awake the whole time.”

Despite quality pitching, the AquaSox lost 2-1 when Tri-City’s Vern Morency singled home Casey Lambert, who had singled, stolen second base and advanced to third on a throwing error by Olszta. Everett starter Travis Blackley took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, in which the Dust Devils scored on a wild pitch. The Frogs had a runner at third base with no outs twice in extra innings, including the top of the 18th, but couldn’t score.

“That was the longest game I’ve ever played in,” Everett second baseman John Cole said. “It was getting to the point where it was getting unbelievable how long it was going. Then when you lose when you had so many chances to win it, it was unbelievable.”

Goose eggs: Early in the season, if the Frogs were struggling, it was often because of the bullpen. That problem seems to have disappeared, but lately the offense has been dormant. The AquaSox have scored just one run in the last 29 innings. With the exception of a six-run ninth inning in an 11-7 loss July 20, Everett scored only four runs in the five-game series sweep by Tri-City. The number zero has been used frequently on the scoreboard lately. The Frogs have scored runs in only five of their last 54 innings.
