Emeralds pitcher leads NW League with 4 wins

Eugene’s Robert Garcia hit a solo shot in the third inning and the Eugene Emeralds iced the three game series against the Hillsboro Hops with a 4-run shutout victory at home last night.

The Emeralds also iced the first-half division title.   Jose Paulino picked up his fourth win in four starts, throwing seven scoreless innings, striking out seven and allowing only two hits with one walk.

The Ems make their first trip of the season to Vancouver tonight where they’ll start a five game series against the Canadians.
