Then struggles in debut, AquaSox lose to Volcanoes

The Everett starter allows four runs in four innings in a 6-2 loss to Salem-Keizer.

EVERETT — Starting pitcher Juan Then struggled in his Everett debut and the AquaSox fell to the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 6-2 on Saturday night at Funko Field at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Then, acquired by the Seattle Mariners in a trade that sent Edwin Encarnacion to the New York Yankees, allowed four runs on four hits in four innings of work. He walked two and struck out one.

After Salem-Kezier pushed across a run on a sacrifice fly in the first inning, Tyler Flores hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning to push the Volcanoes’ lead to 4-0.

Everett got a run back in the bottom of the fourth. Robert Perez Jr. walked, advanced to second on a wild pitch and to third on a single by Trent Tingelstad, then scored on a single from Austin Shenton to make the score 4-1.

Salem Kezier added two runs in the sixth on a solo home run by Yorlis Rodriguez and a sacrifice fly Flores to make it 6-1.

The AquaSox squeezed across another run in the bottom of the seventh when Shenton singled and later scored on a sacrifice fly from Luis Joseph.

Shenton went 3-for-4 with an RBI to lead Everett’s (3-6) offense.
