The AppleSox have now surrendered leads in games they ended up losing three times this year...additionally they have been the team that has come-from-behind, twice...one of those two wins was in game one of the series with these Bend Elks.
Bend and Corvallis are the two teams that the AppleSox will face just once this year, in series play...Bend will not travel to Wenatchee the remainder of this season, so tonight’s meeting decides this three game series, as well as the 2017 season series...the AppleSox have played in one rubber match game this year, June 7, at Victoria...Wenatchee was victorious 9-0.
The AppleSox rolled the dice last night, and went for a series win, using Friday’s originally-scheduled starter Collin Maier...that means Matthew Young will make his first start of the summer tonight, in an effort to lift Wenatchee in game three of the series...the AppleSox desperately need a lift in the starting pitching department...of their active arms who have starts so far the season, the combined pitching record is 2-4, and Collin Maier is the only active starter who holds a win (he is responsible for both of Wenatchee’s two SP wins).
VERSUS TEAMS WITH A WORSE RECORD
Weird stat here...when the AppleSox are playing a team with a worse record on the season, they are 1-3...the AppleSox are 6-3 against teams with a better record.
Wenatchee is happy to be back in red uniforms tonight...so far, the AppleSox are 0-3 in their visiting blue uniforms...between home and the road, the AppleSox are a combined 5-2 in the red tops.
