The AquaSox lead was erased just two batters into the third when Jesus Severino doubled to center and McGregory Contreras doubled to left off Orlando Razo.

Vancouver would take the lead in the fourth when Griffin Conine launched one over the fence in right-center field.

Everett regained the lead in their turn at bat in the fourth. Connor Hoover singled to right and Charlie McConnell doubled to center to put runners at second and third. Ryan Ramiz grounded out to second to score Hoover before Ryne Ogren had an infield single to third to bring in McConnell.

C-Notes

C's NotesYorman Rodriguez saw his 15-game hitting streak come to an end but his on-base streak reached 16 after he was hit by a pitch after Conine’s home run.

Conine had a chance to drive in a run in the fifth but he lined out to center field to strand Contreras and Lopez after Contreras reached on an error at short and Lopez singled to right.

Bryan Lizardo replaced Guzman at first base in the bottom of the seventh. Guzman was 1-for-3 but was caught stealing. Lizardo was 0-for-1.

The C’s went down in order in the first two innings and last two innings but managed seven hits and went 2-for-4 with runners in scoring position while leaving six runners stranded.

Other than a five-pitch third inning, Silva struggled over his four inning stint. The first inning saw Silva give up a single to Ogren before walking Cal Raleigh and Josh Stowers to load the bases before freezing Ryan Garcia with a called strike three. Silva walked McConnell and Ramiz after Honeyman’s homer in the second but limited the damage with an inning-ending strikeout of Ogren.

Pulido gave up a single to Stowers in the fifth but faced the minimum after Nick Rodriguez grounded into a 5-4-3 double play. More trouble faced Pulido in the sixth when Honeyman singled to start the inning but Pulido retired the next three hitters to give him two scoreless frames with two strikeouts.

Reyes got around a two-out walk to Raleigh and an errant pickoff throw to get out of the seventh inning. Reyes also got away with a Hoover two-out free pass in the eighth put up two more scoreless frames while striking out one. Johnson also added a strikeout to get his fifth save of the season in a clean ninth.

About Niall O'Donohoe

My name is Niall O’Donohoe and I am an avid follower of baseball, specifically Canada’s Teams – the Toronto Blue Jays and their affiliate, the Vancouver Canadians. My blog beginnings began in 2007 with Batter’s Box, where I’m still allowed to write stories, summaries and photos about the Blue Jays minor league system under the alias #2JBrumfield. The blog formerly known as Niall On Baseball, C’s Plus Baseball follows the C’s from behind the lens at Nat Bailey Stadium. The reason for the name change was to reflect the main purpose of this blog, which is to deliver plus coverage of the C’s through photos and observations of the players striving to make it to the major leagues, be it with Toronto or one of the other 29 MLB teams. From time to time, I do make it to other baseball games outside of The Nat and will post about them here as well.
