Padres Minor League Roundup For August 11th

6 of 7

Single A: Eugene Emeralds (24-32)

The Eugene Emeralds lost a 6-11 on the road to the Boise Hawks, in what could have been an even bigger blowout. The Ems pitching staff gave this one away, allowing fifteen hits, six walks, and eleven earned runs. The Hawks’ offensive onslaught lasted four innings, scoring all eleven runs between the third and the sixth. The surprising fact is that only two of these hits were for extra bases: a home run in the third and a double to lead off the fourth. The key to victory for Boise was moving the runners over. Five of the nine starters for the Hawks had multi hit games, a feat that none of the Emeralds were able to pull off. Franchy Cordero had a rough night, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout and an error. Eugene put their best efforts on the table in the top of the eighth inning, when they were down 3-11 and put together a nice little rally. The rally came in the form of a lead off double, a walk, and back-to-back doubles. A sac fly would bring us to the final score of 6-11 before the rally fizzled out. It was good to see that the Ems were able to put together some offense after being down by so much.
