Everett 7, Tri-City 1, end 6: Every time Tri-City looks as though it may start to chip away at its deficit, Everett's Seon Gi Kim bears down.
The right-hander allowed a one-out double, but induced a groundout by Francisco Sosa and then struck out Dillon Thomas looking on the eighth pitch of the at bat. Kim has now thrown 78 pitches, including 53 for strikes.
Everett 7, Tri-City 1, mid-6: The AquaSox tacked on another run, thanks to an infield single, two walks and a wild pitch by reliever Eric Federico. Federico came on to replace Josh Hungerman, who was charged with the unearned run.
Hungerman was pulled after a two-out walk. He threw 2 innings, allowing an unearned run on one hit, with two walks and five strikeouts. He threw 50 pitches with 30 crossing for strikes.
Everett 6, Tri-City 1, end 5: Seon Gi Kim is dealing for Everett. He records his first 1-2-3 inning on just 11 pitches, inducing two fly outs.

Everett 6, Tri-City 1, mid-5th: A good job by Josh Hungerman to keep the Dust Devils within striking distance. After an error and a walk with no outs, Hungerman came back to strike out the side.
He threw 24 pitches, 15 for strikes. Dust Devils need to get the bats going.
Everett 6, Tri-City 1, end 4th: Now that was frustrating to watch for the fans. Dillon Thomas draws a one-out walk, so what do Patrick Hutcheson and Alec Mehrten do? Swing at the first pitch and both hit lazy fly outs.
Everett's Kim continues to cruise, throwing just 10 pitches that inning. He is at 50 pitches for the game with 33 strikes.
Everett 6, Tri-City 1, mid-4th: Peter Tago must've been on a pitch count, because he mowed down the first two hitters of the inning, but was then pulled in favor of Josh Hungerman.
Tago finished with the following line: 3 2-3 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HBP, 0 HR. He threw 73 pitches, including 46 for strikes. He threw first pitch strikes to 8 of the 18 batters he faced.

Everett 6, Tri-City 1, end-second: A leadoff double by Dillon Thomas is wasted, as Everett's Kim settles down.
Kim threw just 12 pitches that inning, nine for strikes. He has thrown 28 pitches through two innings.
Everett 6, Tri-City 1, mid-second: The wheels fell off for Tago in the second inning. Peter Tago walked two, hit a batter, threw away a pick off attempt, and had two wild pitches.

Tago gave up two runs on three hits with no one left on base. He threw 21 pitches, with just 11 crossing for strikes.
Top 1: Not the start that Tri-City's Peter Tago was hoping for. The former first-round supplemental draft pick from 2010 has given up back-to-back RBI doubles, while recording just one out. It's already 2-0 Everett.
