KEIZER, Ore. — Taylor Ard was a double shy of the cycle and Mike Zunino hit his first home run as a professional in Everett's 11-2 Northwest League rout of Salem-Keizer on Monday night.

Zunino went 2 for 5 and has hit safely in all three games for the AquaSox since signing with the Mariners. His solo homer came in the ninth.

Ard drove in four runs, Patrick Kivlehan homered and drove in three and Christopher Taylor went 4 for 5 for Everett (23-8).

Steve Garrison (0-2) took the loss, allowing eight hits and five runs in seven innings for Tacoma (40-54).
