Merchants split doubleheader at Grand Forks tournament

Everett opened with a win but fell in its second game of the day.

GRAND FORKS, B.C. — The Everett Merchants went 1-1 Friday at the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament at James Donaldson Park.

The Merchants opened the day with a 4-2 win over the San Francisco Seals in the continuation of a game that was suspended in scoreless tie after one inning Thursday due to inclement weather.

Cody Culp delivered seven strong innings on the mound, allowing two runs on nine hits, to pick up the win. He fanned seven batters and walked none.

Everett scored all four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Jaxsen Sweum walked with the bases loaded to drive in the first run, and Nic Anderson followed with a bases-clearing double to seal the game for the Merchants.

Everett followed by dropping a seven-inning game, 12-6, to the Houston Westchase Express .

Patrick Chung went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored. Austin Hauck reached base in all four plate appearances, finishing the day 3-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored.

The Merchants play the Alaska Goldpanners on Saturday at 8 a.m.
