Sox lose series opener to division-leading Falcons

WENATCHEE – The visiting Kelowna Falcons jumped on the  Wenatchee AppleSox early and never looked back in a 7-1 thrashing of the home team at Paul Thomas Sr. Field on Monday night.

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.

Poor defense costs AppleSox

WENATCHEE – The bunt. It seems so innocuous. Regardless of situational play or score, the sight of a batter blatantly holding his bat horizontally temptingly signals to the other team a white flag that says, “I surrender! Get me out!”

Sox complete three-game sweep of Gems

WENATCHEE — The AppleSox got a 4-0 victory over league bottom feeder Klamath Falls on Sunday, completing the three-game sweep at Paul Thomas Sr. Field. Wenatchee’s opponent turns from worst to first as the Sox will host the league-leading Bend Elks tonight.

Sox pummel league-worst Gems

WENATCHEE — The one-way trip from Walla Walla to Wenatchee is long enough under ideal conditions. But back-to-back late-inning losses on the road can stretch those miles even longer for a traveling baseball team.

Sox rebound, tarnish Gems

WENATCHEE – The one-way trip from Walla Walla to Wenatchee is long enough under ideal conditions. But back-to-back late-inning losses on the road can stretch those miles even longer for a traveling baseball team.

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.

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.

Seahawks visit Pybus

WENATCHEE -- Hours before the Sleepy Hollow Fire swept through the Broadview neighborhood and destroyed fruit packing warehouses in north Wenatchee,12s in the Wenatchee Valley enjoyed a far lighter mood.

Wenatchee FC draws with Seattle FC

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. The Capitals largely failed to display either the aggressive defending that led to a 1-0 victory over Vancouver on June 13 or the 3 goal offensive outburst which earned a draw with Yakima United last week.

Sox one game away from sweep of Cats

VICTORIA, British Columbia — The AppleSox fended off the Victoria HarbourCats 1-0 on Saturday when Sox pitchers Hunter Wells and Brian Gadsby combined for a four-hit shutout, a game that was a near complete opposite of Friday’s contest at Sports Traders Diamond.

Cavaliers rally to beat Commodores twice, win title

OMAHA, Neb. — Brandon Waddell worked out of early trouble to pitch seven innings, Pavin Smith hit a home run and drove in three runs and Virginia defeated Vanderbilt 4-2 to win the College World Series championship Wednesday night at TD Ameritrade Park.

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.
