Emeralds Win; New QB Settling In

Emeralds Win

The Eugene Emeralds maintain their lead in the Northwest league with a win last night against the Spokane Indians.  They did it with a mix of singles and home runs and had a little help from the Indians when pitcher Anderson Pilar hit Emeralds shortstop Jimmy Glowenke with the bases loaded scoring a run.  The ems scored 8 runs on 8 hits while holding the Indians to 2 runs on 5 hits.  The Ems hold a ½ game lead in the standings.

New QB Settling In

Quarterback Bo Nix is settling in with Oregon, his new team after transferring from Auburn in the offseason. Nix is the most senior of the Ducks quarterbacks as the team prepares to open fall camp on Friday. Nix will be competing for the starter’s job with Ty Thompson and Jay Butterfield. Nix was a three-year starter for the Tigers, but he hurt his ankle last November and his season was cut short.
