An eighth inning RBI single off the bat of Justin Miller lifted the Eugene Emeralds to a 5-4 win over the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes last night. The Ems trailed going into the seventh and tied it up when Kyle Gaedele scored on a wild pitch. The two teams meet tonight and tomorrow at PK Park in Eugene. The Ems head out to Everett Sunday for the first of three against the Aqua Sox.
