Wenatchee 5, Kelowna 4 in 10 innings last night.  

 

Wenatchee at Victoria 7:05 tonight.  

 

Wenatchee vs. Victoria

The AppleSox and HarbourCats played three times here in town last month.  The local club won them all 7-2, 8-1 and 3-2.  The new Canadian team shot off to a 7-1 record to begin the season, but have been on the skids ever since, going 8-16.  Most recently they were swept in three by Walla Walla, took two of three from Klamath Falls and then went three and out against Medford.  

 

Extended Games

Last night’s 10-inning affair was the fifth extra frame game of the season for Wenatchee and the local nine has won them all. Extra-inning games have not been a strong point for the Sox in the past, so this season is a nice turn-around. 

* They started the season 9-13 at Paul Thomas and with four of the five wins coming at home, have finally gotten back to .500 on the local diamond.  We say finally, because the only other time they’ve reached that mark was 2001 when they were 1-1.

* Overall in 14 seasons they have a 27-22 record...55 percent.  When not playing extra-inning games they win at a 65 percent clip.     July 19 Games Nothing spectacular.  On the 19th the AppleSox are 5-4 overall, 5-3 in league contests, 3-1 on the road and have a 1-game win streak.  

 

Drawer Full of Sox

When Blake Phelps began the game as the pitcher last night he became the 37th player for the team this year, the most ever in 14 seasons.  The previous high was 36 last year.  

 

Standings

North: WENATCHEE 21-15, Walla Walla 20-16, Bellingham 19-16, Victoria 15-17,  Kelowna 12-24

South:  Bend 20-14, Corvallis 21-15, Cowlitz 18-15, Klamath Falls 17-17, Medford 17-19, Kitsap 12-24  

How about those races.  Just a game and a half separating the top three teams in each division with just over a third of the season remaining.
