WENATCHEE, Wash. – The Wenatchee AppleSox (14-14, 11-13) swept the Klamath Falls Gems (5-18, 5-18) with a second-consecutive 4-0 win, Sunday night at Paul Thomas Sr. Field.

The AppleSox opened up scoring in the first inning on a Keston Hiura RBI single. It was the first of two RBI on the night for Hiura, who went 3-for-4 on three singles.

In the fifth, the AppleSox doubled their lead to four, when Nick Nyquist hit an RBI triple into the left center field gap. Evan Douglas scored on the play, and Scott Hilpert drove in Nyquist on a groundout to shortstop.

Zach Haggett (3-1) threw seven innings for the AppleSox, giving up only three hits, while striking out three and walking three. Brian Gadsby worked two innings in relief, holding the Gems scoreless. Wenatchee’s pitching staff hasn’t allowed a run in the last 20 innings.

The homestand continues Monday, when the Bend Elks – and the WCL’s best record – rolls into town for a three-game set. Chris Carns toes the rubber for Wenatchee.
