Baseball Blubs by Bruce
 
Wenatchee 5, Corvallis 2, last night
 
Wenatchee (12-7) at Corvallis (10-9) 6:40 tonight.
 
June 28 Games
The Sox are batting .667 the 28th of June...they are 8-4.  They are 7-1 in league games and 3-2 on the road, and they have won on this date each of the past three seasons.
 
Doubleheaders
Twin bills are far and few between for Wenatchee these days.  That wasn’t always the case though.  In the days of the Pacific International League “let’s play two” occurred quite a bit.  The AppleSox have participated in 44 of these 2-for-1 deals, 35 in their PIL days from 2000 to 2004.  The first 36 twin bills were all scheduled at the beginning of each season.  On the other hand, of the last eight, seven have been rescheduled games because of rainouts.  The last beginning-of-season scheduled doubleheader was in 2006 at Aloha.  And check this out, back in the hay days of doubleheaders Wenatchee played back-to-back twin bills three times...one Saturday followed by another Sunday (2000 at Coquitlam, B.C. then at Seattle Studs.  2003 at home with San Francisco Angels at Spokane RiverHawks.  2004 at Seattle Studs and again at the Studs). 
The Sox
- are 49-39 (39-31 league, 10-8 nonleague).
- have had 22 at home and 20 away.
- are 25-23 at home and 24-16 away.
- have swept 14 times, split 21 times and been swept nine times.
- have played the most double features against the Seattle Studs six, the Everett Merchants five  and four each with the Aloha Knights (now Corvallis), Bend Elks, Coquitlam Athletics and Spokane RiverHawks.
- played their last one at home against Kelowna on June 9, 2011 (went 2-0).
- played their last one on the road against Medford last year on June 25 (went 0-2).
