Honeyman, Rodriguez lead Frogs over Hawks

Red-hot Bobby Honeyman tallies 3 more hits and Nick Rodriguez homers in Everett’s 5-3 win.

EVERETT — The Everett AquaSox claimed the series victory with a 5-3 victory over the Boise Hawks Saturday before 5,025 fans at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Everett (7-5, 27-23) concludes its five-game series with Boise (3-9, 24-26) at 4:05 p.m. Sunday

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.

The Hawks took the lead with three runs in the top of the fourth. Willie MacIver singled in Luke Morgan, and Daniel Jipping followed with a two-run home run to give Boise a 3-2 lead.

Those were the only three runs Bosie scored.

The Frogs tied it back up in the bottom of the inning when Jansiel Rivera’s two-out double scored Honeyman.

Honeyman later doubled off the wall to score McConnell in the fifth. The run gave Everett a 4-3 lead, but Ramiz was thrown out at home trying to score on the play.

Everett added some insurance in the eighth. Josh Stowers led off with a walk and went to third on Honeyman’s single. Stowers then stole home on the back end of a double steal during which Honeyman stole second.

Following Sunday’s game the AquaSox are off for the three-day All-Star break before returning to Everett Memorial Stadium on Thursday for a five-game series with Eugene.
