ON A ROLL
The AppleSox have won three-straight games and four of their last five...last season the team’s longest winning streak was a four-game stretch at home from June 11-15...Wenatchee has a chance to tie that mark tonight...the current three-win streak is tied for the third-longest streak against the HarbourCats..the last time the AppleSox took three-straight from Victoria was July 31, 2014-June 21, 2015...twice the AppleSox have won 4-straight...the first time was to start the series July 2, 2013-July 19, 2013...the other Aug. 5, 2013- July 29, 2014...Wenatchee collected its only sweeps over Victoria in the series during those two stretches.

BROOMS AT THE READY
