Bobby Honeyman continued to swing the bat well as he finished 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI. He drove in a run with a first-inning groundout. Nick Rodriguez also homered and finished 2-for-4 while Charlie McConnell added a pair of hits.
Noah Zavolas (3-2) earned the win with three innings of scoreless relief of starter Jheyson Caraballo. Zavolas fanned five and allowed one hit. Benjamin Onyshko worked the final two innings and struck out two for his first save.
Everett took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first. Ryan Ramiz led off with a triple down the right-field line into the Boise bullpen and scored on Honeyman’s infield groundout.
Rodriguez led off the bottom of the second with a solo home run to right-center to make it 2-0.
