Wenatchee 6, Walla Walla 3 last night.
 
Wenatchee (16-15) at Walla Walla (15-16) tonight.
 
Ummm?
AppleSox record at home 10-10...on the road 10-6.  And four of the home wins were over nonleague opponents by a combined score of 61-11.
 
500
The average fan may not realize this, but the next Wenatchee triumph will be the 500th in franchise history.  How ‘bout that!  In 787 games they have a record of 499-288 (63.4%).
- 371 league wins, 24 playoff, 104 nonleague.
- 302 wins at home, 197 on the road.
 
July 15 Games...Unique Date
A rare date in AppleSox history, in fact the only one of its kind and one that can not be duplicated by any other day.  Counting tonight Wenatchee has played a game on the 15th of July every year for all of their 15 years...in fact two in 2001.  This is the only date where this has happened.  It is also unique of another reason...seven nonleague games have been played July 15 while no other date has more than five...and the Sox have prevailed in all seven.  The record for 7/15– overall 10-5, league 3-5, nonleague 7-0, home 6-1, away 4-4 and they have a short two-game win streak going.
