Lineup 7/6 at SF

14 straight for Eugene

The Short-A Eugene Emeralds did it again last night, winning 9-3 over Vancouver and setting a new Northwest League record with their 14th consecutive victory. Two-time NW League Player of the Week (just 19 games into his professional career) Cory Spangenberg had another two-hit game, going 2-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored. Shortstop Jace Peterson led the way at the top of the order with a 3-for-5 night that included a double, two RBI and two runs scored. Peterson was the Padres fifth selection in this years Draft, taken 58th overall.

Cory Spangenberg is hitting .388 with a .548 OBP through 19 games

Led by former ASU head coach Pat Murphy, in his first year managing at the professional level, the Emeralds are now 17-2 on the season. They are hitting .273 on the year while posting a 3.26 team ERA. Over the 14-game win streak, the club is outscoring their opponents 94-43. The Emeralds are averaging 6.7 runs/game over that stretch while allowing 3.1.

The Short-A Eugene roster consists of 30 players, 17 of which joined the Padres less than a month ago as selections in the 2011 First-Year Player draft.
