Frogs rally past Canadians, leap back into 1st place

Andy Thomas makes key plays on offense and defense in Everett’s 9-8 win over Vancouver.

EVERETT — Catcher Andy Thomas hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning, and threw out the tying run at third base to end the game as the Everett AquaSox regained first place in the High-A West standings with a back-and-forth 9-8 win over the Vancouver Canadians on Wednesday night at Funko Field.

A day after falling out of first, Everett’s win, combined with the Eugene Emeralds’ 7-2 loss to the Hillsboro Hops, allowed the AquaSox to move in front by a half-game in the division standings with 15 games remaining in the season. The scorching Spokane Indians beat the Tri-City Dust Devils 7-5 and remained just a game behind Everett in the standings.

With the game tied 5-5 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Cade Marlowe launched a two-run home run to give the AquaSox a 7-5 lead.

The Canadians responded with three runs in the top of the seventh to retake the lead, before Thomas’ clutch hit put Everett in front 9-8.

In the top of the ninth, Sebastian Espino hit a one-out double off Jarod Bayless to put the tying run on base for the Canadians. Eric Rivera flew to center for the second out and Thomas nabbed Espino trying to steal third base to end the game.

Marlowe finished the game 2-for-4 with three runs batted in, and Victor Labrada homered and drove in a run for Everett (59-45).

Rafael Lantigua, Spencer Horwitz and Orelvis Martinez all homered for Vancouver (48-56).
