Ems Swept By Boise; Rutschman Wins Yet Another Award; Rannow Looks to Make Cut

Ems Swept By Boise

The Eugene Emeralds leave Boise without a win.  Last night the Emeralds gave up 3 runs to the Boise Hawks while committing 3 errors on the night.  The Ems had just one run on four hits.  Eugene pitcher Kohl Franklin worked 5 innings and gave up one run after striking out 5 and left the game with a 1-1 tie.  The loss goes to Alfredo Colorado who came in relief and gave up two runs in the 6th.  Final score 3-1 Hawks.  Tonight the Ems face the Hillsboro Hops who relinquished first place to the Salem-Kaiser Volcanoes after two straight losses.  First pitch at Ron Tonkin field this evening is at 7:05

Rutschman Wins Yet Another Award

The awards keep coming for star OSU catcher Adley Rutschman.  Last night Rutschman received the Buster Posey Award in Kansas City which is given to the nation’s top catcher.  The award was formerly known as the Johnny Bench Award but was renamed this year.  Rutschman officially inked his deal with the Baltimore Orioles on Monday and will begin his major league career with the Gulf Coast League Orioles in Sarasota, Florida.

Rannow Looks to Make Cut

Local golfer Bob Rannow takes to the links today to see if he can make the cut for the final rounds of the U.S. Senior open.  Rannow shot a one over round yesterday and tees off today at 10:16 am Florence time.
