THE PLAYOFF HUNT
To catch the current WCL leader, the AppleSox need to win their final three first-half games (at Cowlitz, Monday-Wednesday) and have the Kelowna Falcons lose two of their last three games July 3-5 to the Yakima Valley Pippins...if the AppleSox lose one of the next three, Kelowna must lose all three to the Pippins (Falcons hold tiebreaker)...in that scenario, Bellingham must also win three of the last five games against Walla Walla.
THAT’S A WINNING STREAK...
Wenatchee has now won its last four league games (six overall)...the 6-straight wins is now the longest such streak for the AppleSox since 2013.
ZAMORA IN NON-LEAGUE PLAY
Josh Zamora is swinging a hot bat in non-league play...the AppleSox middle infielder has two home runs this week in non-league play...one against the Everett Merchants, and another last night against the River City Athletics.
HOME WIN TOTAL
Including non-league play, the AppleSox won 14 home games last season...the hometown nine is already up to an 11-3 record at home this year, with 17 home games still left to play.
TURN THE PAGE
The AppleSox went 16-10 record in June (non-league included)...the sixth time in 18 seasons they have won 16 or more in June...the team record was 22 June wins in 2012.
GOING FOR 100
Tonight’s game could mark the team’s 100th home non-league win...on Fireworks Night to boot!
ON FIREWORKS NIGHT
The AppleSox are 8-9 all-time on Fireworks Night and 3-1 against non-league opponents...Wenatchee has won its last two (last year against Kelowna and 2015 versus Klamath Falls)...this is the earliest for a Fireworks Night in team history...in 2014 the game was played on July 2...every other year, the game was played on July 3.
