Emeralds Fall To Dust Devils And To Second Place

PASCO – The Eugene Emeralds (57-42) saw their offense sputter for the second straight night on the road.

Tallying nine hits but mustering just one run, the Ems lost 3-1 to the Tri-City Dust Devils (39-59) on Wednesday night at Gesa Stadium.

The Emeralds opened the scoring as Ricardo Genovés led off the third inning with a double and two batters later Ismael Munguia, playing in his first game since August 7 due to injury, delivered a single to left-center field that provided just enough time for Genovés to scamper around from second and score putting Eugene up 1-0.

An inning later, Tri-City jumped into the lead on one swing of the bat. The bottom of the fourth started with a Jordyn Adams double to center field, and Adams advanced to third one batter later on a flyout to left off the bat of Kenyon Yovan that resulted in a close call at third in which Adams was ruled safe despite a perfect throw from Jairo Pomares in left.

One batter later, Kevin Maitan brought both Adams and himself home as the once highly-touted international signee belted his first High-A homer, a two-run shot off the shed in left field to put the Dust Devils in front, 2-1.

Tri-City added one more in the eighth on a wild pitch from Nick Avila that scored Kyle Kasser from third, but the Emeralds had their chance to tie it in the ninth. Marco Luciano led off the ninth with a single to the right side, and after Tyler Fitzgerald grounded into a fielder’s choice that wiped out Luciano at second, Ricardo Genovés singled to left to put the tying run on base with the potential go-ahead run, Logan Wyatt, coming to the plate.

However, for the second straight night Wyatt wound up being the final out of the game as Wyatt sent a grounder back to the pitcher Ivan Armstrong, a former Giants farmhand that was acquired by the Angels at the trade deadline, and Armstrong easily started the game-ending double play as the Emeralds fell for the second straight night to the last place Dust Devils, 3-1.

With the loss, Eugene falls out of a tie for first place as the Everett AquaSox snapped Spokane’s ten-game winning streak with an 8-1 victory.
