Since there is no question, it seems like this is just a bad beat complaint, please use the bat beat forum for those in the future.

In this hand, any player reads? You're stacking off 1 pair in a small pot with deep stacks behind (high spr), that may or may not be good poker by you. Versus a nit this is an easy fold tbh. Versus a loose-aggressive spewy fish it's fine to stack off.

I know what you meant with the title of this post (you got sucked out on), but I think there's a valuable lesson to consider here, because while this flop call may be fine vs. certain villains, if you are always stacking off 1 pair with high stack to pot ratios like 25 that is definitely a big contributing factor to why you are losing money, and it's something you have control over (unfortunately no control over a bad river card coming).
