AppleSox comeback falls short, Bend completes sweep

WENATCHEE — In 1995, the plucky Seattle Mariners sold “Refuse to Lose” T-shirts featuring a pelican attempting to swallow a frog, yet the resilient amphibian clasped two “arms” around the white bird’s throat, declining to be gulped without a struggle.

WENATCHEE – Strikes in baseball are commonplace. Strikes across home plate, that is. Strikes in the sky beyond far from the umpire’s jurisdiction are not. In a game abruptly interrupted in the fifth inning by a lightning strike to the southeast of Paul Thomas Sr. Field, the Bend Elk came thundering back in the 12th inning to clip the Wenatchee AppleSox 8-7 in what the late Seattle Mariners broadcaster Dave Niehaus would describe as a “wild, wooly affair.”

Bunt defense haunts AppleSox against Elks
