Baseball Blurbs by Bruce
 
Cowlitz 7, Wenatchee 4  last night in 11 innings.
 
Cowlitz (22-25) at Wenatchee (25-22) 6:05 tonight.
 
Stuff
- Fifth extra inning game of the season last night and the AppleSox are 3-2.  It was their third one with Cowlitz...won in 10 here in 2010, lost in 10 here in ‘12.
- It was only the second loss to the Black Bears at home in 11 games.
- All-time its better to do the extra-inning thing on the road...14-14 at home and 16-10 away.
- Approaching bewitching hour.  Following a 38-minute weather delay last evening the game started at 7:43 and lasted 3 hours and 33 minutes until 11:16.  Longest home game of the year, and the 12th to exceed three hours.
 
The Magic Number
Five teams are left vying for three remaining playoff spots – Corvallis, Bend, Yakima Valley Wenatchee and Walla Walla.
The magic number is how many combined wins and losses will eliminate a team from contention or secure their way to the playoffs! 
East: Yakima Valley and Wenatchee 4.  Yakima Valley and Walla Walla 2.  Wenatchee and Walla Walla 6.
South: Corvallis and Bend 4.  Bend and Medford 4.
West: Bellingham is champ.
Wildcard: Bend and Wenatchee 6.  Bend and Walla Walla 4.  Wenatchee and Walla Walla 6.
 
August 3rd Games
And another good date for Wenatchee.  On 8/3 they are 6-2 overall, 5-2 league, 1-0 nonleague, 4-2 home and 2-0 on the road.  A year ago on this date they topped the San Francisco Seals 5-3.
 
Standings
East: Yakima Valley 29-18, WENATCHEE 25-22, Walla Walla 23-24, Kelowna 15-32
West: Bellingham 32-14, Cowlitz 22-25, Victoria 22-25, Kitsap 20-26
South: Corvallis 31-16, Bend 27-20, Medford 23-24, Klamath Falls 12-35
 
Who’s Hot:  Yakima Valley has won 6 straight.  Corvallis has won 4 of 5.  Cowlitz has won 4 of 5.
Who’s Not: Klamath Falls has lost 6 of 7.  Bend has lost 5 of 6.  Kelowna has lost 5 of 6.
