Pair of solo home runs sink AquaSox in 2-1 defeat

BOISE, Idaho — Designated hitter Garrett Hampson hit his first two home runs of the season, both solo shots, to account for all of the Boise Hawks’ offense in a 2-1 win over the Everett AquaSox on Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

Hampson’s first homer gave the Hawks a quick 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, and the second put Boise ahead to stay in the bottom of the sixth. Both blasts came off AquaSox starter Danny Garcia (6-2).

Everett (43-30 overall, 25-10 second half) got its lone run in the fifth inning, when Boise starter Breiling Eusebio walked David Greer with the bases loaded. Dimas Ojeda, Yojhan Quevedo and Bryson Brigman all singled to load the bases.

The AquaSox had a few chances to add to their total, but couldn’t come through with a big hit. In the ninth inning, pinch-hitter Eric Filia drew a walk, and Austin Grebeck’s two-out single put runners on first and second.

Boise closer Justin Lawrence balked to move Filia to third and Grebeck to second, but Brigman grounded out to end the game.

Everett will begin its final regular-season series of the season on Saturday when the Spokane Indians come to call at Everett Memorial Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

The Sox will also face Spokane to begin the postseason on Wednesday.

Miller honored by league

Everett starting pitcher Brandon Miller was named the Northwest League Pitcher of the Week for Aug. 22-28 the league announced Friday.

Miller went 1-0 and struck out five hitters in five perfect innings during his start last week against the South Division-leading Eugene Emeralds on the road.

Miller is the third AquaSox pitcher, joining Ljay Newsome (twice) and Elliott Surrey to win the award. Kyle Lewis and Nick Zammarelli have also been named Player of the Week.

Former Frog headed east

Former AquaSox pitcher Jake Brentz, who was called up to Class A Clinton on Aug. 6 has been traded from the Mariners organization to the Pittsburgh Pirates along with Pedro Vazquez as the players to be named later in the deal that sent Arquimedes Caminero to Seattle. Brentz was originally acquired by the M’s from the Toronto Blue Jays in July 2015 as part of the trade that sent Mark Lowe to Toronto.

Lewis to start against Everett

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis will make a rehab start for the Spokane Indians on Monday against the Everett AquaSox, the Rangers organization announced Friday. Lewis has a 6-1 record with a 3.21 ERA in 98 innings this season, but has been out since June 21 with a strained lat muscle.
