AquaSox’s rally falls short in 11-8 loss at Boise

BOISE, Idaho — Everett’s loss to Boise Friday night could have looked a whole lot uglier.

AquaSox pitchers Jose Santiago and David Hesslink struggled early, and Everett found itself trailing by 11 runs at the end of the fourth. The Frogs reeled off eight consecutive runs, but the early damage proved too much to overcome, as Everett suffered an 11-8 loss at Memorial Stadium in Boise.

Everett (6-3 second half, 25-29), which received multi-hit nights from Juan Camacho, Louis Boyd and Greifer Andrade, had its three-game win streak snapped.

Santiago lasted only 11⁄3 innings, giving up five earned runs on two hits, but he walked five before being lifted in the bottom of the second.

Boise raced out to a 6-0 lead, and Santiago didn’t receive much help from his defense, which committed two errors.

Hesslink replaced Santiago and didn’t fare much better. The Everett reliever yielded five earned runs on seven hits in only two innings of work.

Boise strung together four consecutive hits as part of a five-run bottom of the fourth, pushing its lead to 11-0.

Despite the massive deficit, the Sox didn’t go away. Everett sent 10 batters to the plate in the the fifth, and a bases-loaded, three-run triple from Eugene Helder helped the AquaSox trim Boise’s lead to 11-6.

Johnny Adams drove in Austin Grebeck with an RBI single in the top of the sixth to cut the Hawks’ lead to 11-7, and a Boyd double in the top of the eighth made the score 11-8.

Everett’s Chris Castellanos, who was making his AquaSox debut, threw a scoreless eighth inning. Boise’s Moises Ceja made quick work of Everett in the ninth, recording his third save.
