My Oh My, What a Race
Wenatchee’s win last night combined with Medford’s 6-4 10-inning victory at Bellingham leaves a half-game difference between the top three squads. The Onions technically are still first with a lead the width of one of their skins, a .535 winning percentage to Bellingham’s .533. The AppleSox are third at .522.

Double Your Pleasure
Two more 2-baggers equals two records. With eight league games remaining the AppleSox have 91 doubles. The local nine set both the team and league records with 93 in 2011.
Home Runs, Where do they Go?
At Paul Thomas this season there have been 14 round-trippers by both friend and foe. As usual, the land beyond the right field fence gets the majority of the pummeling. The AppleSox have six to right and two left, while the opposition has four right and two left.
With 10 runs last night Wenatchee has now reached double-figures eight times. Next is Kelowna with six. Kitsap has yet to score more than seven in a game.
July 31 Games
The AppleSox like the last day of the month. They are 7-1 overall, 6-1 in league games and undefeated at 5-0 at home. They have a 1-game win streak.
North: Walla Walla 23-20, Bellingham 24-21, WENATCHEE 24-22, Victoria 19-23, Kelowna 15-28
South: Corvallis 28-15, Bend 26-17, Medford 24-22, Klamath Falls 21-22, Cowlitz 21-22, Kitsap 16-29
The Rogues are rambling. Most likely it’s too little too late to make the playoffs, but first-year Medford has won 10 of 13. To go 12 of 15 would be even better...they are at Bellingham for two more. Go Rogues!
