Rannow Advances; Ems Over Volcanoes

Rannow Advances

Florence golfer Bob Rannow is in contention for a spot in the Boeing Classic.  Rannow was one of only five golfers that shot below par.  Rannow shot a 3-under 68 to win a pre-qualifier at High Cedars Golf Club.  Rannow’s next outing will be Tuesday in the Greater Seattle Boeing Classic qualifier.  Low scores will advance to the Champions Tour event, August 23-25th.

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.
