Cory Spangenberg’s final game in Eugene ended with him receiving a standing ovation with two outs in the ninth inning of the Emeralds’ 6-2 win over the Yakima Bears Monday at PK Park.
When Yakima Bears second baseman Danny Pulfer’s professional baseball career started out with an 0-for-20 slump, he had to keep faith in his ability as a hitter — but his faith goes further than just the batter’s box.
Try as they might, the Eugene Emeralds still haven’t lost two games in a row this season. Despite surrendering four unearned runs in the third inning and falling behind the Yakima Bears 5-1, the Emeralds battled back with four unearned runs of their own in the fifth inning and took a 7-6 victory Saturday night at PK Park.
For former Oregon second baseman Danny Pulfer, there was no place like home Friday night, as he scored the winning run in the 13th inning to give his Yakima Bears a 3-2 win over the Eugene Emeralds.
The Ducks never quite found their footing in 2011, and it cost them a spot in the playoffs.
Danny Pulfer has bounced back from a rough start to become a leader in Oregon’s clubhouse.
Oregon and Portland have already met four times this season, with each team winning two games.
