WENATCHEE, Wash. – The Wenatchee AppleSox (12-6, 9-6) continued their late-series winning ways on Sunday night, as they took down the Walla Walla Sweets (6-9) by a score of 7-3 at Paul Thomas Sr. Field.
Ty Jackson drove home the AppleSox first run in the first inning on a hard-hit ground ball up the middle of the field.
In the fourth, Caleb Wood continued the great start to his season by breaking the tie with a lead-off solo home run to left field. He went 3-3 on Sunday with a walk and was hit by a pitch.
The AppleSox continued to score 5 more runs after Wood’s solo blast. Nick Brooks hit a 2 RBI single with the bases loaded to help the AppleSox to the 7-1 advantage at the end of the fourth.
Drew Rasmussen powered through the fifth inning to earn the winning decision.
Hunter Wells offered four innings of strong pitching out of the bullpen. He faltered a bit at the end as his pitch count continued to rise. However, Wells finished the game, while working out of the ninth inning jam.
The AppleSox are now 4-1 in the rubber match of each of their West Coast League match-ups this year.
A new three game series starts Monday as the Corvallis Knights come to town. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
