One mistake can make or break a game for a pitcher. Ryan Williams had one of those days after going six strong innings and only giving up five hits and one run, but the offense could not give him any support as the Ems fell in a one run shut out. The Ems for their part out hit the AquaSox, but could not string together a rally. Eugene had runners on base in seven of the nine innings, but did not push across the tying run. Eugene begins a series in Boise for the next three days before coming back home and starting a series with Hillsboro on Saturday, July 7th.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congratulate Brea Blankenship as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Brea’s personal record best of 19:41 flat in the 5000 meter run in the Warner Pacific XC Classic helped propel the Viking Ladies to a first place finish this past weekend trimming 27 seconds from her previous start and 25.5 seconds from her previous personal best.
Honorable Mention goes to Mia Collins who had 10 kills, 9 digs and a block last week’s win against Elmira.
