Wenatchee 10, Medford 2 last night.
Medford at Wenatchee 6:05 tonight.
Wenatchee is back in first place, barely, but there. The local nine is 18-13 for .581 for a winning percentage and Walla Walla is 19-14 for .576.
Today is the middle game of the home schedule. It is game 16 of 31 on the local diamond. Pretty good start so far...the AppleSox are 12-3.
Speaking of Home Wins
Wenatchee has a 9-game win streak at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium. They took two from Klamath Falls, three from Kitsap, three from Victoria and one from Medford. The nine wins tie for the second longest home win-string in franchise history...it also happened in two years ago and again last summer. The team record is 10 when they won the last six games of 2007 and the first four of 2008.
Tied When Ryan Barr stroked a double in the 8th inning last night it was his 14th. That ties Zach Mandelblatt for the team record who also had 14 in 2007.
July 14 Games
On this date the AppleSox are 7-3 overall, 4-2 in league games, 4-1 at home and have a 3-game win streak. Interesting note: 10 years ago today Wenatchee went off on the Victoria Royals to the tune of 31 to 6 in a nonleague encounter before the local fans.
