HITS KEEP COMING
Evan Johnson and Dugan Shirer each extended their hitting streaks last night...Johnson has now hit safely in all 10 games he’s played for the AppleSox...Shirer has hit safely in all nine.
Last night’s ballgame set a new mark as the fastest game this season for the AppleSox...it was completed in a swift two hours and nine minutes...Wenatchee has had five of its first ten games played in less than two and a half hours this year.
WIN THE CLOSE ONES
Last night, the AppleSox picked up one-run game win number three on the season (3-2)...one more than all of last season, when the team went 2-9 in one-run games.
LEEDHOLM LIGHTS IT UP
Northern Colorado right-hander Connor Leedholm is off to a hot start...out of the bullpen, he is a perfect 12-of-12 in batters faced/retired and has a 1-0 record with a save...he has thrown 2 strikeouts.
MAIER THE ODDS BE IN YOUR FAVOR
Collin Maier was stellar last night for Wenatchee...he gave up just four hits over seven innings in his second live game of the 2017 calendar year (redshirt, WSU)...he threw first pitch strikes at a rate of 72.4 percent (21-for-29)...his four hits allowed helped the AppleSox limit the opposition to its lowest hit total since June 14, 2016 at home against the Walla WallaSweets.
Last night, everyone in the AppleSox order reached base at least once, or contributed a sacrifice (Joel Condreay) in the team’s victory...speaking of sacrifices, Wenatchee is tied for second for the most sacrifice flies in the league (3).
SERIES WIN THREE?
If the AppleSox pick up a third-straight series win tonight, they will have accomplished something not achieved since June 14-26 of last year, when they won series 2-to-1 over Walla Walla (home) and Bend and Gresham (road).
