Rubber match of three game series set for tonight at PK Park

Hillsboro’s Jared Miller struck out 11 Emeralds over six shutout innings for his sixth win of the season last night at PK Park. The Hops came out on top 4-nothing over Eugene. The Emeralds’ Kyle Twomey got the start, but lasted just two innings before being replaced by Jose Paulino. He went five innings and was tagged for the loss.

Hillsboro moved into a tie for the Southern Division lead with Salem-Keizer…. Eugene is a game back in third place. The two teams meet again tonight. The Emeralds will head out for a five game series against Vancouver in BC beginning tomorrow.
