#MiLB:Fitzgerald’s 8th Inning Blast Propels Ems to 2-1 Victory

The Emeralds lone runs of the night prove to be enough for the win on a night where defense was king 

EUGENE – The Eugene Emeralds earned a 2-1 win to end their losing skid at two games.

The Emeralds (15-9) were able to split the series at three games apiece in the final game of their series against the Spokane ball club (9-15) which moved Eugene into a three-way tie for first place in the High-A West.

The Ems were able to end a week that saw them lose four key players with a thrilling come-from-behind win against Spokane who took a 1-0 first inning lead on an error that allowed Eddy Diaz to score.

This run would be their last due to some extraordinary pitching for the Emeralds who allowed only one hit after the first inning. Soloman Bates, John Timmins and Taylor Rashi combined for 5.1 innings allowing only one hit and two walks and throwing five strikeouts including two from Rashi that iced the game for the Ems.

Spokane could’ve added an insurance run in the top of the 8th on a single to left field from designated hitter Kyle Datres, but a defensive gem that saw Jacob Gonzalez and shortstop Will Wilson combine to gun Willie MacIver out at home kept Spokane’s lead at 1-0.

The Emeralds had multiple chances to take the lead, including two bases loaded opportunities that resulted in zero runs, but the bottom of the 8th inning saw that change with a Tyler Fitzgerald bomb to left field that scored Logan Wyatt and ended up being the winning runs in a 2-1 defensive battle that ended with Eugene’s 15th win of the season.

While the Ems did leave 8 runners on base, a combined 2 hit performance by Eugene’s pitchers was more than enough to lead them to a win on Sunday night at PK Park.

The Ems start a series against the Vancouver Canadians in Hillsboro on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. Tickets are available at www.EmeraldsBaseball.com
