In a seesaw affair at Nat Bailey Stadium, the Canadians picked up the 13-7 win over the Ems in the second game of a five-game series in Vancouver.
For the second straight night, the Canadians collected more runs than hits (13 runs, 10 hits) while a total of six errors by the Emeralds capped off a frustrating night at the ballpark.
Also for the second straight night, the Canadians struck first with a run in the bottom of the first to take a 1-0 lead. However, the C's lead wouldn't last long as the Ems would tack on four runs in the top of the second inning to take the 4-1 lead thanks to RBI singles by Jose Ruiz and Marcus Davis, as well as a throwing error by Canadians catcher Max Pentecost.
The scoring continued in the fourth as the Ems stretched their lead to 5-3, but the Canadians would respond with two runs in the bottom half to tie the game at 5-5.
After a scoreless fourth inning, the Ems retook the lead with two runs in the fifth inning, but once again the Canadians would respond, this time with three runs to take an 8-7 lead after five innings of play.
That 8-7 score would hold until the 8th inning when the Canadians would bust the game open. Five runs scored in the inning as a grand total of ten Canadians batters came to the plate, giving the C's a 13-7 lead that would ultimately prove to be the final score.
A total of three home runs were hit tonight, all of which were two-run home runs, with Canadians Boomer Collins and Ryan McBroom each hitting one for Vancouver while Trae Santos smacked his third home run of the season for the Ems.
Meanwhile, Franchy Cordero had his 8-game hitting streak snapped as the talented 19-year old had a rough night at "The Nat" committing three of the six errors on the evening for the Ems.
The Ems will look to bounce back tomorrow, as Michael Kelly will take the mound in a "Nooner at the Nat" with the first pitch scheduled for 1:05pm. You can catch all the action on 95.3FM The Score, EmeraldsBaseball.com, or on the MiLB First Pitch app.
