Eugene, OR (May 6th, 2022) - After yesterday's game was rained out, the Hops were back in action at PK Park on Friday. Ross Carver made his fourth career start and threw the best outing of his career. Carver struck out 10 in five innings of work, giving up no hits. Hillsboro couldn't capitalize on Carver's strong outing, as they struck out a team record 19 times in the game, en route to being shut out for the sixth time this season. Giants No.3 prospect Kyle Harrison struck out 10 over four innings in the Emeralds 1-0 victory.
Both starters struck out 10 hitters in the game, with Carver lasting five innings, walking two and giving up zero hits. Harrison went four innings, allowing two hits and three walks on Friday.
The only run of the game was scored in the sixth inning, when Julio Frias allowed two walks and three wild pitches. Jimmy Glowenke scored on one of those wild pitches, giving Eugene a 1-0 lead. Through six innings, Hillsboro had not allowed a hit in the game.
The lone hit of the game for the Emeralds came in the bottom of the eighth, on a single by Ghordy Santos to left field against Liu Fuenmayor.
Adrian Del Castillo reached base three times in the game, with two hits and a walk. Tim Tawa and A.J. Vukovich also recorded a hit in the contest.
Every player in the Hillsboro lineup struck out at least one time in the game, as Harrison, Standlee, Helvey, Waites and Avila combined for 19 Eugene strikeouts.
