The Vancouver Canadians spanked the Eugene Emeralds last night at PK Park in Eugene. Four Vancouver pitchers fanned out over nine innings to allow just 2 hits for the Ems. The Canadians racked up 8 hits and 9 runs including a 2-run homer in the fifth inning. They added 4 runs in the ninth inning for a total of 9 runs. Final Score 9-nothing, Canadians. The Emeralds stay at home for the next 3 nights to host the Salem-Kaiser Volcanoes and then hit the road on Saturday to meet with the Spokane Indians.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News, and Coast Radio Sports congratulate sophomore soccer standout Jason Garcia as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Jason scored a goal and had 2 assists in Saturday’s standoff against Waldport. Coach Londi Tomaro said Jason’s work in the midfield to win and maintain possession of the ball helped to keep Waldport at bay and kept the game close. His efforts have been instrumental in Siuslaw’s 6-0-1 season.
Honorable mention goes to senior cross country runner Hannah Rannow who exhibited strength and stamina in her strong second place finish at the Paul Mariman Invitational on Saturday.
