Emeralds Can’t Find Swing; Yeskie Honored

Ems Drop Deciding Game

The Ems started out in a 5 run hole last night as the Canadians came out swinging.  But it was a couple of wild pitches that also helped Vancouver to a 4 run lead in the first inning.  Javiar Assad had a rough start throwing 127 pitches in just 4 innings of work.  Eugene managed to score 2 runs in the 5th inning but it was all the offense they could muster.  Vancouver widened the gap in the 7th with two more runs  making it a 7-2 game.  The Ems are back at home tonight for 2 games against the Boise Hawks.  Game time at PK park is 7:05.
