M’s pitch consecutive shutouts

SAN DIEGO — Robinson Cano drove in three runs with a homer, a bases-loaded single and a double and Taijuan Walker picked up his fifth straight win Wednesday afternoon as the Seattle Mariners right-hander and four relievers combined for a three-hit, 7-0 win over the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

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.

Cavaliers rally to beat Commodores twice, win title

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.

Late Sox rally falls short

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.

Sox shut down Bells’ bats, avoid sweep

BELLINGHAM – The Wenatchee AppleSox used dominant pitching to beat the Bellingham Bells 5-1 on Sunday at Joe Martin Field and avoid a series sweep.

Wenatchee well-represented at USTA mixed doubles tournament
