EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Gustavo Polanco homered and singled, driving in two runs as the Eugene Emeralds topped the Vancouver Canadians 6-1 on Sunday.
Jhonny Bethencourt doubled and singled twice, also stealing a base for Eugene.
Eugene started the scoring in the second inning when Polanco hit a solo home run.
After Eugene added three runs, the Canadians cut into the deficit in the fifth inning when Bryan Lizardo hit a solo home run.
The Emeralds later tacked on a run in both the fifth and sixth innings. In the fifth, Joe Martarano hit an RBI single, while Zach Davis hit an RBI double in the sixth.
