WALLA WALLA — Like many of Wenatchee’s games this year, Wednesday night’s contest at Borleske Stadium in Walla Walla was a back-and forth affair, crooked numbers appearing in one frame for each team.

Sox win game despite poor efficiency

WALLA WALLA -- The Wenatchee AppleSox beat the Walla Walla Sweets Tuesday night 5-4 at Borleske Stadium. Although the Sox committed four errors and recorded three less hits than their counterparts, the run column is the only column that matters at the end of the night.

Mora softball tournament: Remembering a legacy

QUINCY — A modest cloud of dry dust plumes above second base, briefly polluting the thick summer air as a runner slides in safely for a double. Small patches of shade, created by tall trees and tarp-composed tents house clusters of sweat-drenched spectators, quickly hustling from spot to spot seeking shady refuge from the sun’s indifferent rage.

Wenatchee FC battled to a scoreless draw with Seattle Stars FC as temperatures reached 100 degrees on the pitch at Mike Hollis Field Saturday night.

Pippins take series finale, sweep Sox

WENATCHEE — Win or lose, coaches want to see a zero under the “E” column of the scoreboard. No dice on Thursday. While the official box score shows that the Wenatchee AppleSox only committed two errors, those miscues and three other mental and physical lapses led Wenatchee to be on the receiving end of the brooms as the Yakima Valley Pippins completed the sweep with a 7-4 win at Paul Thomas Sr. Field.

Pippins beat Sox in slugfest

WENATCHEE — Every rally starts with the best of intentions. Bleakness hung over Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium on Wednesday like an evening haze in the bottom of the fourth inning  as the Wenatchee AppleSox trailed the Yakima Valley Pippins 5-0 and were being outhit 12-3.

WENATCHEE - Coaches are a different breed. They possess an uncanny ability to find flaws in wins and silver linings in losses that the average pom-pom waving, 'C'mon, Blue!' yelling fan might not discern.

What a week at Chambers Bay

As I sit in my living room and write these words, it’s been less than 24 hours since Jordan Spieth won the 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place. Or to put it another way, less than a day since Dustin Johnson lost his bid at his first golf major — a choking loss that was heartbreaking to watch. More on that in a moment.
