Rodriguez, the No. 3 overall prospect in all of baseball, went 3-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI in his first game at Funko Field and the Everett AquaSox rolled to a 13-3 win over the Tri-City Dust Devils on Tuesday night.
Tyler Keenen added to Everett’s big day at the plate with two doubles, a home run and five runs batted in.
Tim Elliot started for the AquaSox and allowed three runs on five hits in five innings before Matt Brash entered and turned up the heat.
Brash tossed four scoreless innings and struck out 10 batters to earn the save for Everett (5-2).
