KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – The Wenatchee AppleSox (8-5, 5-5) dropped the series opener to the Klamath Falls Gems (3-7) on Tuesday, 10-8.
Things got off to a great start in game one of the series. The AppleSox plated three runs on a bases clearing three RBI double to right center field by Michael McCann.
In the bottom of the first, a fielding error extended an inning that would’ve left the AppleSox on top of the scoreboard at 3-1. Instead, Klamath Falls scored two more runs to even the score at three.
The Sox scored one run in the top of the second. Klamath Falls countered with four of their own in the bottom of the second, making the score 7-4.
Things held until the seventh inning, when the AppleSox scored three more runs to even the score at seven. Michael McCann got the three-run, two out, rally started with a double down the left field line. Caleb Wood also had an outstanding night from the plate. He went 4-4 and was hit by a pitch in the first inning.
Klamath Falls scored three more runs in the bottom half of the inning, which started with another fielding error. It was one of four that the AppleSox had on Tuesday.
Tyler Frost surrendered the runs in relief and lost his first game of 2014. The Gems were led by Thomas Walker, who went 3-5 and came around to score each of the three times he was on base.
The series with Klamath Falls continues tomorrow at 6:35 p.m. In 2014, the AppleSox have still never lost the second game of a league series after dropping the first.
