Seven days in July: a golf odyssey

So I found myself thinking, “If I were going to play golf every day for a week, seven consecutive days, which courses would I play and why?”

Errors plague AppleSox against Pippins

WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee AppleSox committed four errors in its 3-1 loss to Yakima Valley on Monday night in front of a crowd of 1,331 at Paul Thomas Sr. Field.

Sox dump Pippins

WENATCHEE – Hometown fans were able to view Tyler Burch’s continual transition from legion ball to the West Coast League Friday. Burch, a recent Eastmont High School graduate, just finished his duties with the Apple Valley Packers and earned the starting nod for the Wenatchee AppleSox. Other than a few minor control problems, Burch looked right at home at Paul Thomas Sr. Field, tossing six plus quality innings in a convincing 11-4 win over the Yakima Valley Pippins.

Brewster’s Smith transferring to Gonzaga

Chandler Smith, who led Brewster High to the 2013 WIAA Class 1A state championship, is transferring to Gonzaga. She will not be eligible to play until the 2016-17 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Baker rejoins Wild defense

AppleSox player Amaral born into baseball

What’s in a name? Well, a lot actually (all due respect to Will Shakespeare’s Juliet). Just ask a Bush, a Baldwin or a Manning if their names came equipped with some extra stigmas, expectations or baggage.

Falcons pitcher dominates AppleSox

KELOWNA, British Columbia — The Wenatchee AppleSox have been hitting well lately, but they were powerless to do anything against Kelowna Falcons pitcher Curtis Taylor on Saturday.

AppleSox have enough offense to win slugfest

KELOWNA, British Columbia — Based on the last few days, one would never know that the Kelowna Falcons are in first place in the West Coast League’s East Division and the Wenatchee AppleSox are in last place.

Patience prevails in comeback AppleSox win

WENATCHEE – Momentum is a fickle beast. About halfway through Tuesday’s game at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium, the Wenatchee AppleSox threatened to give the home fans the dubious honor of witnessing an opposing no-hitter as Kelowna Falcons starter Matt Camby mowed through the lineup as if driving a John Deere.

NCAA ordered to pay $46 million in fees

CHICAGO — A federal judge ordered the NCAA to pay nearly $46 million in attorneys’ fees and costs to lawyers for student-athletes including former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon in their class-action antitrust lawsuit against the organization. The decision late Monday night by U.S. Magistrate Judge Nathanael Cousins came nearly a year after U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken in Oakland, California said the NCAA violated antitrust law by barring athletes from sharing in revenue.

Stagnant offense hurts Sox in loss to Kelowna

WENATCHEE – Attention all worms: be on alert. When AppleSox batters weren’t striking out against Kelowna Falcons starting pitcher Kendall Motes, they were pounding balls into the ground. Through five masterful innings, Motes fanned five and induced seven worm-burners Monday in a dominating 7-1 win over the Sox at Paul Thomas Sr. Field.

Capitals succumbed by Shadow

SPOKANE – Wenatchee FC lost 2-1 against the Spokane Shadow at Spokane Falls CC Stadium on Saturday night.

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.

Sox lose heart breaker in 12 innings

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.”

Local little leaguers qualify for regional tournament

EAST WENATCHEE — It takes time and commitment to excel in any sport, no matter how old the superstar. Three local youth baseball teams are headed down to Eugene, Ore. Wednesday morning to participate in the Cal Ripken Jr. regional tournament after stellar performances in their respective state tournaments held at the Eastmont 4 Plex Ball Fields on July 2-5.
