The Portland Timbers' struggles away from Providence Park in 2023 continued on Sunday, , May 28, and might have fallen to a new low in a 4-1 loss at Sporting Kansas City in a match where Portland lacked the urgency to stay with a desperate opponent.

A one-run game turned ugly late as the Ems parlayed three late-inning home runs into eight overall runs en route to a 10-1 win over the Hops on Saturday, May 20, at PK Park in Eugene.

Eugene only had four hits in their game against Hillsboro on Thursday night, but that’s all they needed in a 2-0 win over the Hops on May 18, at PK Park in Eugene.

An easy win got interesting late, but in the end it was the Hops who prevailed in a 10-7 victory over the Ems in the second of their six-game set on Wednesday, May 17, at PK Park in Eugene.

Timing is everything, and despite recording nearly twice as many hits than the home Emeralds, the Hops dropped the opener of their six-game set with Eugene 5-2 on Tuesday, May 16, at PK Park in Eugene.
