#MiLB: Rising Giants Prospect Leads Emeralds Over Dust Devils

PASCO, WA – The Ems bats were as hot as the arm of the 18th ranked prospect in the San Francisco Giants system, Kai-Wei Teng.

Kai-Wei Teng fired his best start of the season, Will Wilson extended his hit streak to eleven games, and Carter Aldrete hammered his first homer of the season as the Eugene Emeralds (9-4) executed on all fronts in a 7-0 win over the Tri-City Dust Devils (3-10) on Tuesday evening at Gesa Stadium.

The home side was gracious to their guests right out of the gate as the Dust Devils gift-wrapped the game’s first runs in the top of the first by allowing two Emeralds runs to score a muffed pop fly ball that could’ve been (and should’ve been) the inning’s final out. Instead, with the bases loaded and two outs, a Tyler Fitzgerald pop fly into shallow right field was booted off the glove of Tri-City first baseman Franklin Torres and thus allowed Logan Wyatt and Sean Roby to score and put the Ems in the driver’s seat early, 2-0.

Turns out that’s all the Emeralds offense would need as the Eugene pitching staff, led by starter Teng, was exceptional on the mound combining to post the team’s first shutout of the season while striking out fourteen batters in the process.

Teng bounced back well after a rough last outing in Hillsboro, firing 5.0 scoreless innings with a season-high seven strikeouts while allowing just three hits and one walk on Tuesday night against the Dust Devils. Teng is a rising star prospect in the San Francisco Giants system and seemed to find some of his true form on Tuesday, locking in his control and leaning on his vast array of pitches to bewilder the Dust Devils lineup all throughout his outing.

The Taiwan native – who had a contingency of fans in the stands sporting a Taiwan flag and signs in support of Teng – gave way to Bryce Tucker, Travis Perry, Ryan Walker, and RJ Dabovich who together combined to allow just two hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over the game’s final four innings.

Those five Emeralds pitchers may have not needed any extra run support down the stretch, but the Emeralds offense decided to give them some anyways.

Eugene made it 3-0 in the seventh after a pair of two out singles by Wyatt and Roby. After Wyatt singled and advanced to second base on a pickoff throwing error from Tri-City pitcher Cristopher Molina, Roby promptly made the Dust Devils pay with a single to left that scored Wyatt and extend the Emeralds’ lead.

One inning later, Carter Aldrete teed off to make it 5-0 by sending a ball approximately 405 feet into the air and 405 feet over the left-center field wall, a towering two-run tater for his first four-bagger of the season to push the Eugene lead to 5-0.

Just for good measure, Patrick Bailey got in on the fun in the ninth as he smacked a double the opposite way to left-center field to score Fitzgerald and Franklin Labour and cap the scoring in a 7-0 Emeralds victory.

Eugene will face off against the Tri-City Dust Devils again tonight at 6:35 p.m. at Gesa Stadium.

The Emeralds return home the following week when they will start a six-game series against Spokane on May 25.
