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.

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.

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.
