Wenatchee 8, Walla Walla 4 last night.  

Wenatchee at Walla Walla 7:05 tonight.  

An AppleSox win today and the division series is over and Wenatchee will host the Corvallis/Medford winner Saturday in the first game of the league playoff.  An AppleSox loss this evening and the Sox and Sweets go it it one final time tomorrow to settle the division playoff winner.  

In the South Division Corvallis beat Medford 8-6 at Medford last night and their series moves to Corvallis tonight.   With the win last night Wenatchee now has won three in a row over Walla Walla and leads the all-time series 15-12.    The win over Walla Walla was the seventh straight at home...five league, one playoff and one nonleague.

Pitching.  Two categories (bases on balls and hit batters) are among the best ever, while the other six categories are near the bottom.  The rankings are based on average per game except for ERA and opponents batting average. Run allowed 9th (4.36).  Earned runs 10th (3.53).  Hits 13th (9.09).  Strike outs 13th (6.36).  Base on balls 2nd (2.49).  Hit batters 2nd (.62).  ERA 11th (3.65).  Opponents batting average 12th (.262).
