Hops Drop Second Game of Series to Emeralds
Written by Austin Melhart - HillsboroHops.com    Tuesday, 18 June 2013 22:46   

HILLSBORO - 24 hours after the grand opening of Hillsboro Ballpark and a lopsided victory, the Hillsboro Hops dropped their fourth game of the year, a 2-0 loss to the Eugene Emeralds.

Eugene scored two runs in the top of the fourth inning on a Trae Santos fielder's choice that scored designated hitter Edwin Moreno, and a Fabel Filpo single up the middle that scored Franmil Reyes. Reyes and Moreno would be the only two players to cross the plate the entire game, which was more than enough run for the Emeralds pitching staff.

The Emeralds' pitching, which was pounded last night for twelve hits and as many runs, seemingly put the last night's 12-0 loss behind them. Starter Bryan Verbitsky threw three innings of one hit, shutout ball before being replaced by reliever Kyle Lloyd. Lloyd, who threw two scoreless, hitless innings, would go on to get the win, his first of the season. The Emeralds would strikeout 13 Hops batters, including a crucial K of Hops left fielder, Zach Esquerra, with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third inning.

Hops starting pitcher Jonathan Pulley would get the loss, throwing six-and-a-third innings, allowing seven hits and no earned runs. The two Emeralds' runs would stem from an error made by Hops' third baseman, Jordan Parr. Relieving Pulley was Chase Stevens, who was relieved by Yoimer Camacho. The two would combine for two-and-two-thirds innings of shutout ball with six strikeouts and only two hits allowed.

In their first five games, the Hops have hit .259, good for third in the Northwest League. Leading the Hops offensively are outfielders Esquerra (.400) and Perez-Ramos (.368), and third baseman Jordan Parr (.313).

The Hops will play their third and final game of the Eugene series and home stand tomorrow. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM. Scheduled starting pitchers are Ben Eckels for the Hops, and Erik Cabrera for the Emeralds.
