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.
