VANCOUVER, Canada - Three AquaSox pitchers combined to toss a
2-0 shutout over the Vancouver Canadians Saturday night at
Nat Bailey Stadium. Marcos Reyna made his first start of the
season and was brilliant in four scoreless inning of work,
allowing just one hit and two walks to go along with six
Rusty Shellhorn was scheduled to start for the Sox, but
instead took a flight to Clinton, Iowa after being promoted
to join the LumberKings. The Liberty Lake, Wash., native
was outstanding in his short stay with Everett, posting a
2.76 ERA in 32.2 innings with 32 strikeouts.
The only two runs of the game came in the top of the second
inning when Sox outfielder Janelfry Zorrilla hit a two-run
homer to left field. Alfredo Morales scored on the play
after leading off the inning with an infield single.
The two-run AquaSox lead would prove to be enough behind
the pitching of Reyna, Grady Wood and Matt Vedo. Wood, who
relieved Reyna in the fifth, tossed three innings with
three strikeouts to earn the win. Vedo would pitch the
final two frames, racking up five strikeouts en route to
his third save of the season.
The Frogs return home Sunday to kick off their final
homestand of the year, beginning with three games against
Eugene and then a five-game series against Yakima.
Right-hander Victor Sanchez (5-2, 3.82 ERA) will take the
mound for the Sox, and will be opposed by right-hander
Tayron Guerrero (0-0, 3.00 ERA) of Eugene.
