World photo/Don Seabrook Grant Sherrod with the Wenatchee AppleSox runs down a fly ball in right field for the first out in the second inning of his team's baseball game against Cowlitz Tuesday night, July 26, 2022. The Sox came away with a 9-2 win to start their three-game series with the Black Bears.

WENATCHEE — Sometimes it just takes one inning.

That was all the AppleSox needed to bury the Cowlitz Black Bears 9-2 Tuesday on a sweltering night at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium. It was so hot at first pitch that team volunteers offered free Otter Pops to patrons out of a cooler as they walked in the front gates and fans brought water sprayers to spritz themselves mid-game.
