The Emeralds opened the scoring in the top of the fifth inning. Everett reliever Brett Ash hit the first batter he faced, then promptly issued two straight walks to load the bases. Jose Ruiz grounded into a double play, but a run scored to give Eugene a 1-0 lead.
Everett tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the seventh thanks to two errors by Eugene shortstop Franchy Cordero, the second of which allowed Martin to score from second base on a grounder from Kyle Petty.
