Ems Back in First Place

The Eugene Emeralds are a half game up on the Aquasox after defeating the Hillsboro Hops on the road last night.  That combined with an Aquasox loss put the Ems on top.  The Ems were behind 5-3 until the top of the 9th inning when the Ems rallied to drive in 3 runs including a 2 run homer to tie the game.  A line drive double from  the Ems Logan Wyatt drove in the go ahead run.  The Ems struck out 2 in the bottom of the ninth and a pop fly foul ended the game 6-5 Ems.
