Yakima Valley Pippins 4, Wenatchee 3 last night.
Wenatchee at Yakima Valley Pippins 7:05 tonight.
One Run Games
AppleSox games decided by a single run (like last night) are fairly common.  In fact it has happened three of every 10 games the club has played in 14-plus seasons.  Wenatchee has won 134 of them and lost 94 (58.2%).
MLB Draft
Three former AppleSox were selected in the first 10 rounds of Major League Baseball’s draft.
Taylor Sparks, 2nd round, 58th pick to the Cincinnati Reds.  Univ. of California-Irvine.  AppleSox in 2012.
Connor Spencer, 8th round, 242nd pick to the New York Yankees.  Univ. of California-Irvine.  AppleSox in 2013.
Andrew Rohrbach, 9th round, 263rd pick to Colorado Rockies,  Cal State-Long Beach. AppleSox in 2013.
Both Sparks and Spencer were named this year to the Wenatchee’s all-time team covering the team’s first 14 years.

 A new experience for Wenatchee.  In 14 seasons this is their first “away” contest on the seventh of June.  On their home turf they have done well...5-1 overall, 3-1 in the league and have a three-game win streak.
