Ems Over Volcanoes
The Eugene Emeralds are celebrating back to back wins at PK Park. Last night the Ems hosted the Salem-Kaiser Volcanoes for the second of three games at home. The Ems exploded with a 4 run second inning that set the Volcanoes on their heals. Left fielder Jacob Olson combined with DH Jake Washer for a couple of RBI doubles in the inning. Eugene put four pitchers on the mound for a combined 15 strike-outs. The Ems won out 5-3. Game 3 is tonight at 7:05.
