The Eugene Emeralds continue their late season struggle against the Everett Aqua Sox. Eugene managed just six hits in a 7-nothing shutout loss in Everett last night. The Sox had 13 hits in all to improve to 18-9 in the second half of the season, four games ahead of the Emeralds, who are 14-13, in the West Division. The two teams wrap up their three game series this evening.
