Emeralds Blast Volcanoes; Emeralds 2 in a Row

Emeralds Blast Volcanoes

The Eugene Emeralds on Saturday put on a hitting clinic for the league leading Volcanoes.  The Ems had 18 hits and 12 runs on the night holding the Volcanoes to just 1 run on 5 hits.  The volcanoes also committed 4 errors in the game that helped the Ems.  The Ems split the series with Salem-Kaiser.


Last night the Emeralds began their 3 game series against the Boise Hawks.  The Emeralds led 1-zip through 6 inning of play and then added to their lead in the 7th with 3 more runs.  They put the lid on the game in the 9th inning when second baseman Chase Strumpf smashed a 2-run homer to give the Ems a 6-0 win.  They play game 2 this evening at 6:15.
