HILLSBORO, Ore. — The Vancouver Canadians drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 10th inning to hand the visiting Everett AquaSox a 7-6 walkoff loss Saturday night at Ron Tonkin Field.
It snapped a six-game win streak for the High-A West-leading AquaSox, who had won the first four games of the series.
Everett (46-23) took a 6-5 lead into the bottom of the 10th, but reliever Ben Onyshko surrendered two runs to Vancouver without allowing a hit.
After the Canadians (33-38) started with a runner on second base per extra-inning rules, Onyshko walked and hit the first two batters to load the bases.
Onyshko struck out the next two batters, but then surrendered the tying run by hitting Will Robertson. Sebastian Espino, the ensuing batter, then drew a full-count walk to bring home the winning run.
The AquaSox took a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the eighth, but Vancouver scored four runs on three singles, two walks and an error to take a 5-4 lead.
Everett tied the game in the ninth on a two-out double by Patrick Frick.
Tyler Keenan hit a ground-rule double in the top of the 10th to give the AquaSox a 6-5 lead. It was the second double of the night for Keenan.
Fred Villarreal started on the mound for Everett and pitched four innings, allowing one run and three hits.
The AquaSox and Canadians conclude their six-game series Sunday at 1:05 p.m.
