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.

Get them up to the Big’s sooner than later, it couldnt hurt!!

I honestly believe that’s the result of a good draft finally after so many years without any impact on the draft selections les all padres fans hope for a good future on the farm system!!!

Great work by the Padres Scouts and executives on getting the players they knew could play..The more i hear about this double play team of Peterson and Spangenberg the faster i would want to go see them play at Petco park. I think the pads have there future in the middle infield in them.Great job Pads.

And Galvez to Valdez at Fort Wayne! The middle of the infield looks to have a very promising future!

Now they need to sign the two high school catchers that the took high in the draft.
