AppleSox drop series finale to Sweets

Print Article

WALLA WALLA — The Sweets scored a pair of early runs to win the series finale against the AppleSox 2-0.

Walla Walla plated one run each in the first and fourth inning.

An outfield assists by Johnny Sage and an inning-ending double play in the sixth by Jake Taylor kept the score close, but Wenatchee’s bats could not answer.

Wenatchee returns home to host Bellingham Tuesday at 7:05 p.m.

Sweets 3, AppleSox 2 (Saturday)

WALLA WALLA — Despite making a late charge, the AppleSox dropped the second game of their three-game set, 3-2, on Saturday night at Borleske Stadium.

The Sox had the tying run in scoring position when Cory Meyer singled and was sacrificed to second in the ninth inning, but a pair of pinch hitters could not drive him in.

Meyer was the player of the night for the AppleSox, going 3-for-4 at the plate and extending his reached-base streak to a team-best 14 games.

AppleSox 7, Sweets 6 (Friday)

WALLA WALLA — Thanks to a furious, four-run ninth inning rally, the Wenatchee AppleSox (11-13) defeated the Walla Walla Sweets, 7-6, on Friday night at Borleske Stadium.

The AppleSox trailed, 6-3, entering the ninth inning but refused to quit. This was the second time in the last three games in which the AppleSox rallied from at least three runs down to tie or take the lead and the third time that they did so this season.
