Ems Make up Ground

Ems Make up Ground

A loss by the Everett Aquasox and a win from the Eugene Emeralds moved the Ems a step closer to the first place spot in the High A West League.  Last night the Ems in Hillsboro toppled the hops in extra innings  the score was tied 6-6 after 9 innings.  After a line drive single that scored Sean Roby to make it 7-6 Ems, Hops pitching loaded the bases for Tyler Fitzgerald who hit a grand slam to make the score 11-6.  The Hops went 3 and out in the bottom of the inning ending the game.
