Wenatchee 2, Walla Walla 1 and Walla Walla 2, Wenatchee 0 yesterday

Kitsap at Wenatchee 7:05 tonight.

Wenatchee vs. Kitsap
Started in 2005
Wenatchee:
leads 29-16 overall and in league in games, and are 15-6 at home.
has an 11-game win streak...five in 2011 and all six last year.
played their longest game inning-wise against the BlueJackets on 8/6/05 winning 7-6 in 16 innings at Bremerton.

Kitsap:
is 4-11 and last in the 6-team South Division.
just played Bend six games in a row, going 1-2 in Oregon and then losing the three at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
has won one of their last seven games.

The 2-1 win in the opener yesterday was the fifth game decided by one run in the AppleSox 11 league contests...3 wins, 2 losses.

The 2-1 win was also their third extra inning game of the season...all wins. It was the 47th additional frame outing in team history...25-22. Because of the rainout the night before, both games Thursday were scheduled for seven innings...league policy. The opener went nine innings.

Wenatchee has now played 43 doubleheaders and has a 49-37 record. They’ve swept 14, split 21 and have been swept 8 times. Twin bills are a rarity compared to the old days. In the Pacific International League (2000-04) doubleheaders were scheduled regularly. In fact 35 of those 43 were were in that coalition. Now nearly all 2-game days are the result of rescheduling due to nasty weather.

The 2-0 shutout score in the nightcap in Walla Walla was the identical score to the Sweets’ win two days prior. Umm?...in the last eight games the Sox have been involved in where one team tallied nary a run, the Sox have been that team seven times. The 15 whitewashes prior to that all had gone the AppleSox way.

June 21 games
On this date Wenatchee is 7-4 overall, 5-3 league, 5-1 at home, has a 4-game win streak and last year defeated the Central Oregon Bucks 13-6.

Good New$
Marco Gonzales signed with the St. Louis Cardinals for $1.85 million. Gonzales, from Fort Collins, Colo., played for the AppleSox in 2010 and just completed his junior year at Gonzaga. Selected 19th in the MLB draft, he signed his contract at Busch Stadium in St. Louis Wednesday.

Standings
North: Victoria 8-3, Bellingham 7-4, Walla Walla 7-5, Wenatchee 5-7, Kelowna 2-10
South: Bend 11-4, Klamath Falls 8-4, Corvallis 8-7, Cowlitz 6-6, Medford 5-10, Kitsap 4-11
