PANTHER TRUE FRESHMAN...
Keegan Romig walked at his Wenatchee High School graduation last night, and takes the field for the AppleSox tonight as the game-two starter...last year, the AppleSox also featured a recent Wenatchee High School graduate, Grady Miller, who pitched the most innings for the team a summer ago...Miller was committed to Portland...Romig will be headed to the University of Washington.
Last night’s two-hour and 14 minute contest was the fastest in the West Coast League.
AT BORLESKE STADIUM
Tonight’s meeting against the Sweets, is the fifth-consecutive series meeting being played at Borleske Stadium...the AppleSox are 1-3 at Borleske during the road stretch.
Last night, the AppleSox were 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position...the Sox left 10 runners on base, and six-of-those 10 runners were left on in scoring position...a seventh run in scoring position was erased on an inning-ending caught stealing.
The AppleSox have two other returners from last season’s team...catcher Matt Reitano and second baseman Parker Price...Price is with the AppleSox in Walla Walla...Reitano will join later this month.
Wenatchee’s 37-man preseason roster (7 temporary players) is made up of 20 players entering their junior, senior, or redshirt-senior seasons of college baseball in 2018...only six members of the roster have yet to spend time on a college campus.
