Oh-oh...9-game home win streak scuttled

Medford 9, Wenatchee 3  last night.  

 

Medford at Wenatchee 7:05 tonight.  

 

Streak Stopped

Wenatchee’s 9-game win streak at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium got zapped last night.   The nine wins tie for the second longest home win-string in franchise history...it also happened in each of the last two seasons.   

 

July 15 Games

Big contrast on this date between league and nonleague games...the former not good, the latter excellent.  Overall Wenatchee is 9-5, not bad.  But, they are 2-5 in league contests and 7-0 in the others.  They are 5-1 at home and have a 1-game win streak.  By the way, the seven nonleague encounters on the 15th of July makes this the biggest day for nonleague games in team history.  One other date has five and several have four.  

 

2 Hours, 33 Minutes

That is the average time of the first 16 home games, from first pitch to final out.  How does this compare to previous seasons?  Its one minute off.  The 313 home games over the decade from 2003 to ‘12 averaged 2 hours, 34 minutes.  Fans at the last half dozen contests have witnessed speed ball.  None of these have gone over 2:32 and they’ve averaged 2:21...which just happened to be the exact time of last evening’s event.  

 

Standings

North: Walla Walla 19-14, WENATCHEE 18-14, Victoria 15-13,  Bellingham 17-15,  Kelowna 11-22

Who’s Not: Walla Walla has lost 3 straight.  Wenatchee has lost 4 of 5.  Kitsap has lost 4 of 5 and 8 of 10.
