Hops rally past AquaSox; 2nd game of doubleheader PPD by rain

Everett falls 5-3 in the 1st game of a makeup doubleheader, and the 2nd game is postponed by rain.

EVERETT — The Hillsboro Hops rallied to beat the Everett AquaSox 5-3 in a seven-inning contest Sunday at Funko Field in the first game of what was supposed to be a makeup doubleheader.

After a rainout Saturday night, the teams were slated to play two seven-inning games Sunday. However, the second game of the doubleheader was postponed because of rain.

Hillsboro won three of the five games in the series.

The AquaSox took a 3-2 lead with two runs in the fifth inning, but the Hops answered right back with a three-run sixth. Hillsboro (13-16) regained the lead on a pair of run-scoring singles by Tristin English and Axel Andueza, followed by a run-scoring double by Spencer Brickhouse that made it 5-3.

Left-hander Brandon Williamson started for Everett (17-12) and allowed five runs and nine hits in 5.2 innings pitched. The 2019 second-round draft pick struck out 12 batters and walked none.

Reece Hampton and Brickhouse each hit a solo home run off Williamson in the second inning to give the Hops an early 2-0 lead.

Carter Bins put the AquaSox on the board with a solo homer in the fourth. The 22-year-old catcher also doubled and finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

Everett continues its homestand with a six-game series against the High-A West-leading Eugene Emeralds (19-11), beginning Tuesday night at Funko Field.
