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.
