WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee AppleSox followed a dominating offensive performance Tuesday with an absolute show from their pitchers Wednesday, when the home team squeeked out a huge 2-1 win over the Walla Walla Sweets.

Starter Trevor Lubking finally got a whiff of run support and earned his second win of the season on a dynamo performance that started with four perfect frames and included 10 strikeouts when the lefty’s night was done after seven innings of work. Lubking was relieved by University of San Francisco’s Houston Hibberd, who struck out five of the six batters he faced to save the one-run win.
