Eugene Emeralds Shut Out Tri-City Dust Devils 3-0

A bunch of guys I've never heard of beat another bunch of guys I've never heard of Thursday night up in Eugene. Yimmi Brasoban and four relievers combined to shut out the Tri-City Dust Devils on four hits. The Emeralds offense was also held to four hits but made them count as they rolled to a 3-0 win.

Brasoban picked up his first win in his second start of the season after allowing no runs on two hits over five innings each time. This time he struck out five batters as opposed to two his first time out, but did walk his first batter of the year. Another difference this time was that the bullpen held on to the shutout for him. Brandon Fry, Jairo Gomez, and Adam Cimber pitched one inning apiece in that order and earned holds. Jorge Guzman came in for the ninth and earned his second save with a perfect, two-strikeout inning.

Eugene's bats gave Brasoban an early lead with a run in the bottom of the first and added two more in the fourth. Right fielder Franmil Reyes had the Ems' only multi-hit game, going 2-4 with the first RBI, striking out his other two times up. Catcher Ryan Miller had the team's only extra-base hit, a two-RBI double, and center fielder Ronnie Richardson had their other hit along with a walk, a steal, and a run. First baseman Trae Santos and third baseman Chase Jensen also walked and scored.

And now we have all heard of them.

The win raised Eugene's record to 3-4 and put them up 1-0 in the current home series against Tri-City, who are also now 3-4. The two teams will go at it again at 7:05 pm tonight as well as Saturday and Monday, with an early 5:05 pm Sunday start thrown in the mix.
