A gritty effort from starting pitcher Seth Corry and another well-rounded offensive performance saw the Eugene Emeralds (19-10) down the Vancouver Canadians (16-13) by a final of 7-4 on Friday night at Ron Tonkin Field.

THE DETAILS:

  • Winning Pitcher: Seth Corry (1-1, 3.00 ERA): 5.0 IP | 5 H | 3 R | 3 ER | 5 BB | 3 K

  • Losing Pitcher: Adam Kloffenstein (1-3, 6.55 ERA): 4.2 IP | 3 H | 4 R | 2 ER | 4 BB | 5 K

  • Save: RJ Dabovich (3): 1.0 IP | 0 H | 0 R | 0 BB | 2 K

  • HR(s): Eugene: N/A | Vancouver: N/A

HOW IT HAPPENED: The Emeralds trailed after the first inning for the second straight day; yet, for the second straight day, the Emeralds tallied the win.

Vancouver needed only two batters to jump out to a 1-0 advantage in the first, but the Emeralds struck back in the second to take a 2-1 lead thanks to a fielding error by C’s second baseman Luis De Los Santos that scored a run, followed by a bases loaded walk drawn by Simon Whiteman that put the Emeralds in front.

Eugene stretched the lead to four in the fifth thanks to a two-out rally that saw four straight singles and three runs come in as an RBI single by Tyler Fitzgerald and a two-RBI single by Franklin Labour pushed the margin to 5-1, but Vancouver responded in the bottom of the frame with two runs to make it 5-3 after five.

Jacob Gonzalez led off the sixth with a double and, after advancing to third on a Brandon Martorano groundout, scored in the ensuing at bat on a passed ball to make it 6-3, yet the C’s would respond once more with a run in the bottom of the sixth to again cut Eugene’s lead back to just two.

The Emeralds added another run in the seventh as Will Wilson brought home his collegiate teammate, Patrick Bailey, with his team-leading ninth double that allowed Bailey to barrel around the bases and score from first, and Wilson’s RBI two-bagger proved to cap the scoring for the evening as John Timmins pitched a scoreless eighth and RJ Dabovich followed by doing the same in the ninth to cap the team’s second consecutive win and push the Emeralds 1.5 games ahead of the Everett AquaSox (17-11) who had their Saturday game rained out.

PEAK PERFORMERS:

  • Seth Corry – LHP: Saturday saw what was by no means the best stuff from Corry, but the fifth-ranked prospect in the San Francisco Giants system showcased grit all game long, tallying only three strikeouts (tying his season-low: 5/6 at Spokane) but also inducing three double plays while making it through five innings for the first time this season.

  • Logan Wyatt – 1B: The seventeenth-ranked prospect in the Giants system once again showcased the poise and good eye at the plate that has made him so highly thought of. Following Friday night’s performance that saw him draw a whopping four walks, Wyatt went 2-for-4 on Saturday with a run scored and, of course, a walk.

  • Tyler Fitzgerald – 3B: Not to be outdone by his collegiate teammate, Logan Wyatt, Fitzgerald also put on a nice display at the plate by going 1-for-2 with an RBI, two walks and two runs scored. The former Louisville Cardinal also showcased his exceptionally smooth skill in the field, making a highlight-reel play to end the eighth that saw him bare hand a slow-rolling groundball and fire to first to end a tense eighth inning.
