Emeralds Defense Fails
The Eugene Emeralds fought hard against the Hops last night as the two teams slugged it out. Eugene went ahead early and had a 5-1 lead in the 5th inning when the Hops answered back in the bottom of the 5th and scored 4 to tie it up. Both teams remained scoreless until the bottom of the 9th when a passed ball allowed the winning run for the Hops. The series continues this evening at 7:05 in Hillsboro.
