Toasty

As of 10 o’clock this morning the National Weather Service predicts a high for both today and tomorrow of 101.  

 

Sunday’s 6-5 loss to Victoria was the 14th 1-run game Wenatchee has been involved in this season...in fact, three of the last four outings were all decided by a single digit.  In extra frame games the AppleSox are 8-6.    

 

A Case for Finding Home Plate

Wenatchee averaged 3.75 runs per game the first 12 games and went 5-7.  The next 22 games averaged 6.77 they went 15-7.  The last five games averaged 3.40 they were 2-3.  

 

Homers in Consecutive Games

The Mariners bashing the horsehide out of the park for 23 consecutive games recently begs the question, how ‘bout them Sox?  Two times in their 13½ seasons Wenatchee sluggers have homered in five straight games.  The first time occurred in August of 2009 – Brian Burke, Kevin Komstadius, Ronnie Schaeffer, Brian Burke and Brian Burke. And the second time in August last season – Mitchell Gunsolus, Taylor Sparks, Ryan Howell, Ryan Howell and Taylor Sparks.  

 

July 24 Games

The 24th has been a pretty good day for the AppleSox.  All their games have been of the league variety where they are 8-2 and 3-2 at home.  They have a 1-game losing streak.  They’ve faced Bellingham twice and defeated them both times.
