KENNEWICK — On Saturday night, the Everett AquaSox failed to get a hit in a 5-0 loss to the Tri-City Dust Devils.

They didn’t do much better Sunday night.

The Frogs managed just two hits — both singles — in an 11-1 loss to the Dust Devils at Gesa Stadium.

Everett was hitless until the fifth inning, when Luis Joseph lined a single into center field. The Frogs’ only other hit was a run-scoring single by Billy Cooke in the same inning.

The AquaSox struggled in all phases of the game. Their pitchers issued 11 walks and their defense committed six errors, one shy of the team record. Just two of Tri-City’s season-high 11 runs were earned.

Everett starting pitcher Tim Elliot (0-1) took the loss. He lasted just two-thirds of an inning and gave up three unearned runs.

After scoring three times in the first, Tri-City added solo runs in the second and fifth innings and blew the game open with a four-run sixth.

Carlos Luis had a pair of hits, including a double, and drove in two runs to lead the Dust Devils.

Tom Colletti (2-2) earned the win. He was the second of four Tri-City pitchers who combined for 10 strikeouts and seven walks.
