Stop Emeralds win streak at six

The Emeralds started off great last night with new arrival Erling Moreno working five scoreless innings on the mound, striking out seven.  But the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes capitalized on several plays to stop the Ems 5-1 in Eugene.

The loss stopped the Emeralds’ six game win streak… and also started the second half of the Northwest League season with Eugene at the bottom of the standings.

The Emeralds finished the first half of the season with a league best 28-10 record.

Game two of three between Eugene and Salem-Keizer is tonight at PK Park.
