Wenatchee 3, Medford 2,  last night.
 
Wenatchee (5-3) at Medford (6-3) 12:05 this afternoon.
 
Squeakers
The AppleSox have played eight league games and five have been one-run affairs.  Four of the five have been recorded in the win column for the team we all follow.
 
Sparks Sparks Anteaters
Taylor Sparks, a 2012 AppleSox, is a member of the UC Irvine team and the Anteaters are in the College World Series in Omaha.  Sparks was the hero for UC Irvine in the opening game of the CWS, a 3-1 win over Texas. 
OMAHA, Nebraska (AP)— With the wind blowing in at 35 mph at cavernous TD Ameritrade Park, UC Irvine’s Taylor Sparks hit the longest ball all day. It barely reached the warning track.

But with Texas’ outfield playing extremely shallow Saturday, his drive to left-center for his nation-leading ninth triple was more than enough to get the Anteaters’ offense going in a 3-1 victory over Texas in the opening game of the College World Series.

“The wind was really howling, so I knew anything lifted, it wasn’t going anywhere,” Sparks said. “I just tried to stay flat with that and was able to travel through the gap. It’s definitely my most special and favorite hit so far.”

Next up for UC Irvine is a game with Vanderbilt at 5 p.m. today.
