AquaSox manhandle Spokane again

Spokesman-Review
 

Jose Campos pitched two-hit shutout ball for six innings Friday and Everett unleashed its offense for a second consecutive night during an 8-2 win over the Spokane Indians at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Campos (2-2) struck out eight and walked two before giving way to Seattle native Jason Buursma, who pitched the final three innings for his first save.

Everett, which leads the five-game Northwest League series 2-1, slammed Spokane 16-9 on Thursday.

Spokane (14-14) dropped out of first place in the East Division, one game behind Boise. Everett is 12-16.

The AquaSox jumped on Christopher Hanna (0-1) for three runs in the first. Ramon Morla hit a two-out, two-run triple to left field and scored on Nathan Melendres’ bunt single.

Jarrett Burgess homered off Hanna in the fourth for a 4-0 lead. Hanna allowed seven hits in 32/3 innings, striking out six.

The lead grew to 7-0 in the seventh on Jorge Agudelo’s three-run homer to right-center. Agudelo has three homers despite batting .152.

Spokane broke the ice in the eighth on Zachary Cone’s RBI single to center. The Indians added a run in the ninth on Guillermo Pimentel’s RBI infield single.

Spokane’s Trever Adams finished 2 for 4 with one run.

Spokane returns to Avista Stadium on Monday for a six-game homestand, starting with three against first-place Boise.
