Bottom of the 9th Win for Ems

The  Eugene Emeralds finished up their series against the Tri City Dust Devils on Sunday with a win taking 5 of the 6 games.  Last night’s win was the most competitive of the series with a tight game with the Dust Devils leading into the bottom of the ninth 6-5. With two men out 3rd baseman Justin Wishkoski swung on a one-one pitch driving it over the left field wall driving in 2 runs for the 7-5 win.

The Ems are back on the field this evening in Hillsboro to take on the Hops for a 6 game series.

Olympic Trials

A second place finish in the 100 meter hurdles cemented former Duck Alashya Johnson’s spot on the US Olympic team this summer.  Johnson was just one of several former Ducks that made the team.  She joins Shana Grebo who clinched a spot in the 400 meter hurdles and Cole Hocker in the 1500 while Duck Jaida Ross takes a spot in the Shot Put. Poland’s Klaudia Kazimierska, who also competes as an Oregon Duck qualified for the women’s 1500 meter.
