Emeralds Bats Silent; Ducks Need Discipline; Beavers Safe After Terror Attack

Hops Drop Ems

The Hillsboro Hops scored 3 runs early in the game last night to take a 3 nothing lead in the bottom of the second.  And that would be all the offense they would need.  The Emeralds bats were silent last night and the only solo hit recorded was when Jose Gonzalez came in to pinch hit.  The Hops pitching dominated the Emeralds.  Eugene has one more chance to take the series this evening at Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro before heading home for a week of home games starting with the Boise Hawks tomorrow evening for a 4 game series.

Taggart Says Team Needs Discipline

Oregon Duck Football Coach Willie Taggart says the key to winning this year is taking care of the ball and being disciplined.  He acknowledges that his team has to play smarter in order to win.

“Less penalties.  We’re not good enough as a football team to beat ourselves with penalties so we have to be very disciplined from that standpoint.”

Taggart says the starting line-up has not been determined and that players are still competing for positions.
