The Eugene Emeralds scored four runs in the third, then a Jace Peterson solo home run in the fourth inning broke a 4-4 tie, lifting the Ems to a 5-4 win over the Everett Aqua Sox last night. It was the first win of the year in Everett for the Emeralds who have struggled, particularly against the Sox, down the stretch. The Spokane Indians will be in Eugene beginning this evening to begin the final five-game home stand for the Emeralds.
