Once again, the AppleSox are in a heated race down the stretch to try to make the playoffs.
Currently, all three divisions in the West Coast League have been won.
Bellingham will represent the West, Corvallis from the South, and Yakima Valley in the WCL East.
The AppleSox are locked in a playoff spot battle with the Bend Elks as both teams look to take the final Wild Card spot.
Wenatchee is a game back of Bend, but must fully overtake the Elks to earn the playoff spot.
With three games left, and Bend playing Klamath Falls, this means there are two scenarios that can earn the AppleSox the Wild Card spot:
- Wenatchee sweeps (wins all three) against Yakima and Bend loses two of three against Klamath Falls.
2. Wenatchee wins two of three against Yakima and Bend loses all three to Klamath Falls.
If Wenatchee wins the Wild Card, they would advance to take on Bellingham in a Divisional series, with the first of the three games being played at Paul Thomas Sr. Field on August 12th. Corvallis and Yakima Valley would meet in the other Divisional series and Bellingham just needs one additional win in their final three games to secure home-field advantage.
