Poor first inning sets tone for AppleSox in loss

WENATCHEE — Sequels are never as good as the original. That is a generally accepted movie rule, but it can translate to baseball as well. On Monday, the Wenatchee AppleSox recorded perhaps their most exciting win of the season in a 5-4 win over the Gresham GreyWolves that ended in the top of the ninth on a play at the plate off a wild pitch to the backstop.

Wild win: Errant pitch helps Sox snap skid

WENATCHEE — Miceal Taylor didn’t realize the situation until he turned around. When the Wenatchee AppleSox reliever began tossing in the bullpen, his team held a 5-3 lead over the Gresham GreyWolves with no outs and a man on first. 

AppleSox lose fifth straight in extra innings

WENATCHEE — Not all losses hurt equally. Some are blowouts. Some are throw-away games. But, for the Wenatchee AppleSox, Sunday’s defeat carried a particularly painful sting.

Anchoring the line

WENATCHEE — Towering above the playing surface with his intimidating frame, veteran right-tackle Conrad Baty is a cornerstone of one of the best offensive lines in Wenatchee Valley Rams’ team history.

Wild release 2016-17 schedule

Everbody Out: launches new website

Haven’t visited the website lately? Then take a look. Since the start of 2016, the Outdoor Discovery Network (the non-profit organization overseeing WenatcheeOutdoors) has been modernizing the look, simplifying the use and improving the functionality of the WenatcheeOutdoors website. The original website was launched in 2005 and, over the course of a decade, WenatcheeOutdoors became the go-to website for information about person-powered outdoor adventure sports in and around Central Washington. But while the old website was a deep repository of local outdoor information, increasingly it was becoming clunky to ...

Sox squander early lead in loss to Knights

CORVALLIS, Ore. — In the first game of a doubleheader on Thursday night, the Wenatchee AppleSox let an early three-run lead go to waste as Corvallis came back late to win 5-3 at Goss Stadium. The second game began at 8:30 p.m. and finished after the Wenatchee World’s deadline.

AppleSox fall to Corvallis in pitcher’s duel

CORVALLIS, Ore. — The American Heritage College Dictionary’s definition of a duel is quite clear: “A struggle for domination between two contending persons, groups or ideas.”

Rubens column | Training your soccer eye

On the surface, there aren’t many similarities between Lionel Messi and Mark Noble. The obvious one is both are professional footballers (a term the rest of the world uses to describe soccer players) but, beyond that, it’s difficult to connect the two. Messi is a forward who plays for Spanish powerhouse FC Barcelona and is widely considered the best player in the world. Noble is a midfielder for English Premier League upper-middle-class West Ham United and has never played for the England National Team. Messi is a world-class goalscorer, one ...

AppleSox start second half with win

WENATCHEE — Life has begun anew for the Wenatchee AppleSox. Starting the second half of the season with an exclamation point, the Sox lived on the base paths and created constant traffic toward home in a 9-5 win over the Kelowna Falcons at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium.

Merz’s fishing corner: Salmon season invades the Wenatchee Valley

As many of you know, salmon season opened Friday and with as many boats as there were on the water, you would have thought they were searching for gold. Although there were many successful anglers on the water throughout the weekend, I was not one of them. It wasn’t for a lack of trying.

The British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) has released the schedule for the fifth Bauer BCHL Showcase Tournament, slated for September 21-25, 2016 at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

Locals dominate River Run races

WENATCHEE — A couple of Wenatchee Valley residents captured River Run on the Fourth 10K titles Monday along the Wenatchee waterfront, while Selah and Mill Creek runners took home the 5K crowns.

Sox rally back but fall short to Kelowna

WENATCHEE — Do you celebrate Boxing Day? The chances are, probably not. For Americans, it is known formally as the day after Christmas. Conversely, the Fourth of July means little to our friends above the border. Though they respectfully stood for both “O Canada” and “The Star-Spangled Banner” just before the game, the Kelowna Falcons did nothing to contribute to the local festivities of Independence Day. Despite a late-inning rebellion by the Wenatchee AppleSox, Kelowna limited the home team’s freedom in a 6-5 win Monday at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball ...
