AppleSox: win a game, make playoff

Wenatchee at Kelowna 6:35 tonight.

 

Pesky Playoff Picture

Thank you Victoria.  On their way home from Wenatchee the HarbourCats stopped in Bellingham yesterday afternoon and upended the Bells 3-2.  Now Wenatchee’s magic number over the Bells is one...a single AppleSox win and a single Bell loss and Bellingham is out of the playoff picture.  By the way, Walla Walla is in.  Whether they are first or second is yet to be determined, but the Onions are in the bag.   

For Wenatchee to miss the playoffs Bellingham has to win their three remaining games at Victoria, and the AppleSox have to lose their three at Kelowna.  And then the makeup game with Walla Walla would have to be played Monday, and Wenatchee would have to lose that one.  If this wild scenario happened, the AppleSox and Bells would be tied for second and the latter would advance to the playoff because they won the series between the two 5-1.  

If by Sunday night if it’s down to the Sox and Sweets for who is seeded one and two and the answer is not clear, there is a possibility that instead of a makeup game Monday, a coin of the realm will be flipped.       

 

Wenatchee vs. Kelowna

Series started in 2000 Wenatchee -

* Kelowna has lost six in a row, three at Corvallis and three at Walla Walla.

* The last seven AppleSox/Falcons contests have not lacked for offense...121 runs have been scored or 17.3 per game.  The Sox have been in double figures three times (22, 17, 12) and the Falcons once (10).

The 9th of August has been a so-so day for Wenatchee, definitely not one of their best.  They are 4-4 overall, 3-4 in league games, 3-2 on the road and have a one-game win streak.
