Boise pitching stifles AquaSox in 4-2 loss

Everett managed just five hits against four Hawks pitchers

EVERETT — The Everett AquaSox offense finally ran into some pitching it couldn’t knock around.

The Boise Hawks took Game 2 of the five-game set with a 4-2 victory Thursay before 1,899 fans at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Everett (5-5, 25-23) mustered just five hits in the game. The AquaSox also committed two errors, rendering two of Boise’s runs unearned.

Starter Carlos Hernandez (3-4) took the loss despite allowing two runs — one earned — while fanning six in five innings of work. Nolan Hoffman allowed two runs — one earned — in two innings of work while Dayeison Arias fanned four and allowed one hit in two innings of scoreless relief.

Justin Valdespina (2-1) earned the win as he allowed three hits and one unearned run in five innings for Boise.

The Hawks took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first when former University of Washington star Willie MacIver singled in two. Hernandez averted further damage by inducing an inning-ending double play.

The AquaSox got one run back in the second on Ryan Ramiz’s two-out bloop RBI single.

Boise added another unearned run in the top of the sixth against Hoffman when Luke Morgan singled and scored on a two-out error. Morgan finished 4-for-4 with two runs scored.

Everett got the run back in the bottom of the inning when Cal Raleigh homered to left-center. It was the switch-hitting catcher’s second right-handed home run of the season.

The Hawks added another run in the top of the seventh when LJ Hatch led off with a single and scored on a two-out RBI single by Terrin Vavra.

Josh Stowers had two hits for Everett. The teams resume their series tonight at 7:05 p.m.
