Sox doomed by big inning in series-finale loss to Canadians

Everett falls to Vancouver 7-1 and settles for a series split after allowing 5 runs in the 5th inning.

HILLSBORO, Ore. — The Everett AquaSox gave up five runs in the fifth inning and suffered a 7-1 loss to the Vancouver Canadians in Sunday’s series finale at Roy Tonkin Field.

With the game tied at 1-1 in the fifth, Vancouver (24-18) broke things open with five runs on four hits, a walk and an error. Sebastian Espino capped the onslaught with a two-run double that gave the Canadians a 6-1 lead.

Rafael Lantigua homered, tripled and drove in two runs for Vancouver, which earned a six-game series split with the win.

George Kirby started for the AquaSox and allowed four earned runs, two unearned runs and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings pitched. The Seattle Mariners’ 2019 first-round draft pick struck out three batters and walked one.

Connor Hoover hit his fifth home run of the season in the second inning, but that was all the scoring Everett mustered. The AquaSox (24-16) finished 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position.

Everett continues its 12-game road trip with a six-game series against Tri-City that begins Tuesday night.
