After scoring 68 runs in their previous 8-game road trip the Eugene Emeralds had a hard time getting a single run in their 7-1 loss to the Everett Aqua Sox at PK Park in Eugene last night. The loss dropped the Emeralds to 10-and-10 in the second half of the season, three-games behind the Sox. The two teams meet again this evening in Eugene.
