Cowlitz 7, Wenatchee 4 last night in 11 innings.
Cowlitz (22-25) at Wenatchee (25-22) 6:05 tonight.
- 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.
