Labrada hits walk-off blast in 11th, AquaSox down Canadians

Everett rallies past Vancouver to win 10-9 on a wild night at Funko Field.

EVERETT — Victor Labrada hit a walk-off, two-run home run in the bottom of the 11th inning as the Everett AquaSox rallied to beat the Vancouver Canadians 10-9 on Saturday night at Funko Field.

Everett scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning on a throwing error, a Labrada double and a sacrifice fly to tie the game at 8-8 and held on in the ninth to force extra innings. After a scoreless tenth, Vancouver plated a run in the top of the 11th on a throwing error by the AquaSox to take a 9-8 lead. With a runner on second to start the bottom of the inning, Labrada lined a 2-1 pitch over the right field fence for the walk-off blast.

With the win, the AquaSox gained a half-game on the first place Spokane Indians, whose game Saturday with Tri-City was canceled due to COVID-19 issues within the Dust Devils organization. Everett trails the Indians by a half-game game, and is a game up for second place over the Eugene Emeralds, whose game against the Hillsboro Hops on Saturday was suspended due to a lights malfunction at Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro. The AquaSox have 12 games remaining in the season, including five with Eugene and six with Spokane.

Labrada finished the game 3-for-5 with three runs batted in, and Joseph Rosa went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI for Everett (60-47).

Zac Cook, Tanner Morris and Phillip Clarke all homered in the game for Vancouver (50-57).
