MOUNT VERNON — The Everett Merchants swept the Langley (BC) Blaze 3-2 and 5-1 in a Pacific International League season-opening doubleheader on Saturday.

Everett won the opener in come-from-behind fashion, as Everett Community College alum Ty Holm lined a walk-off, two-run double to center field to rally the Merchants to victory.

Everett pulled away early in the second contest, scoring three runs in the first inning. EvCC alum Cooper Jansen tossed 51/3 innings for the victory, allowing just three hits and one run.

The Merchants (2-0) resume play today at Sherman Anderson Field in downtown Mount Vernon with a 1 p.m. doubleheader versus the Burnaby (BC) College Bulldogs.
