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.

Eugene right-hander Enrique De Los Rios (1-0) picked up the win after allowing one run on just three hits over five innings. Opposing starter Wilfri Aleton (0-1) took the loss in the Northwest League game after a rough outing in which he allowed five runs and 11 hits over 4 2/3 innings. Luis Aquino pitched three scoreless innings for his first save of the season.
