The Eugene Emeralds can’t seem to find their winning ways of late. Last night in Boise the Ems fell in a 5 run hole in the bottom of the first inning. A walk, a double, a single and a triple from the Hawks in the inning put a damper on the Emeralds and the Hawks continued to score, racking up 11 runs in 5 innings. The Ems did manage to score 4 runs in the top of the 5th inning but they could not keep the momentum going the final score was 12 to 5. The Ems get another shot at the Hawks this evening. First pitch in Boise is at 6:15.
