Larsen homers twice, Sox beat Canadians for 5th straight win

Jack Larsen blasts 2 homers and the first-place AquaSox win 8-2 for their 21st victory in 27 games.

HILLSBORO — Jack Larsen homered twice, Levi Stoudt pitched five strong innings and the visiting Everett AquaSox won their fifth straight game with an 8-2 victory over the Vancouver Canadians on Thursday night at Roy Tonkin Field.

The High-A West-leading AquaSox (45-22) have won 21 of their last 27 games, including the first three in their current six-game series against Vancouver (32-37).

Larsen hit a solo homer in the seventh and a two-run shot in the ninth, bringing his season home-run total to eight. Over his last six games, the 26-year-old former undrafted free agent has three homers, one triple and three doubles.

Stoudt started for Everett and allowed one run and two hits in his five innings of work. The 2019 third-round MLB draft pick struck out three batters and walked one.

The AquaSox took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on a run-scoring double by David Sheaffer and a two-out RBI single by Cody Grosse.

Everett cleanup hitter Dariel Gomez, a recent callup from Low-A Modesto, homered in the third to make it 3-0. It was Gomez’s fourth extra-base hit in five games since being promoted.

In the sixth, AquaSox catcher Jake Anchia hit a leadoff double and came around to score on a two-out wild pitch to extend the margin to 4-1.

Larsen later added his two homers to widen the gap.

Vancouver starter CJ Van Eyk, a 2020 second-round draft pick by the Toronto Blue Jays, struck out nine batters in five innings pitched. He allowed three runs, four hits and three walks.

The AquaSox and Canadians continue their series Friday at 7:05 p.m.
