Wenatchee 7,  Victoria 2 last night.      


Victoria at Wenatchee 7:05 tonight.      


Throwin’ Heat    

The 104 recorded at Pangborn yesterday is a record high for July 2 in the Apple Capital.

It was the second highest temp ever for 388 dates for home games.  The record is 107 on Aug. 1, 2009.  

It was the 12th time the mercury has reached 100 or more in those 388 dates.  

Hot, no problem.  The home team is 10-3, has won five straight and 10 of 11.  

How can they be 10-3 if it only hit 100 12 times?  The first time it happened was July 4, 2001 and Aloha (now Corvallis) took a twin bill.      


July 3 and Fireworks Night Games  

Big night.  Big Crowds.  Big Fireworks.  Not so big results on the field.  In fact the 5-8 record ties 6/13 for the worst record on any of the 35 dates where 10 or more games have been played.  In league games, like tonight, its even worse, two wins in nine tries.  A year ago Walla Walla waxed Wenatchee 12-0...the Sox biggest shutout loss.      


Quite the Race  

Only a game and a half separate the top four teams in the North Division with a smidgen over one-third of the season complete.  The AppleSox edged back into third with their win last night and Bellingham’s loss.      

Factoring in everybody’s last 10 games, Wenatchee has been the hottest squad in the North, going 7-3.  Walla Walla is 6-4 and everybody else 4-6.      



North: Victoria 11-7, Walla Walla 13-9, WENATCHEE 12-10, Bellingham 11-10, Kelowna 6-16  

South:  Bend 16-9, Cowlitz 10-9, Klamath Falls 12-11, Corvallis 13-12, Medford 9-13, Kitsap 9-16
