Baseball Blurbs by Bruce
 
Wenatchee (15-15) at Walla Walla (15-15) tonight.
 
Close.  Not only are Wenatchee and Walla Walla sharing identical records, 15-15, the competition after four and a half years is also tight.  Wenatchee leads overall 20-18, league 18-16 and at home 11-9.  In playoff games they are 2-2 and at Walla Walla 9-9.  So far this season the Sweets lead 4-2, the AppleSox taking two of three in Walla Walla and the Sweets sweeping the Sox here Thursday through Saturday.
 
Brown and Brooks tie Gebbers
Since 2008 the last name that appeared most among all AppleSox players was Gebbers with four.  This season’s roster includes Sam Brown and Nick and Trenton Brooks so three surnames now share the top spot among 407 that have worn the red, white and blue.
