Everett rallies in 11th to stop Hops 6-5

EVERETT AQUASOX 6, HILLSBORO HOPS 5 (11 innings)

Friday night at Everett Memorial Stadium

THE STORY

Everett scored two runs in the bottom of the 11th to overtake the Hops, who had never trailed.

The Ems drew two walks, then tied the game on a two-out RBI double by D.J. Peterson and won it when the next batter, Reggie Lawson, brought home Jack Reinheimer from third base on a ground ball mishandled by third baseman Randy McCurry.

It was Hillsboro's sixth error of the game.

Hillsboro fell to 0-4 in Class A Northwest League road games.
