leads in Bellingham 25-15.
has a 2-game win streak.
The Bells are an historical opponent as they were the host team for the first game in AppleSox history. Just six months after the turn of the century Wenatchee went to Joe Martin Stadium and pulled out a 2-1 victory on June 2, 2000.
The 10-2 loss Sunday to the Everett Merchants was the worst nonleague loss (by margin of defeat) in 11 seasons. In July of 2003 the Cheney Studs whacked the AppleSox 10-1 here in town. The defeat also ended the team record 12-game nonleague win streak.
June 12 games
The 12th day of June has been a great one for Wenatchee. They have played seven games and have lost nary a one...4-0 in league, 3-0 nonleague, 5-0 home and 2-0 on the road. This is the only day (with a minimum of seven games) the Sox are undefeated.
Icebox to Fire
What a hot start. No, no not the team...seven times they’ve started better than 3-2. We’re talking degrees here, like in temperature. The average temp for the first five games this spring is the highest in team history...85 degrees (high for the day at Pangborn). This is in direct contrast to the shivering fans who attended the first five outings a year ago when the average temp was the lowest ever...65.6. The 14-year average for the first quintet of games is 74.9.
