KELOWNA GOING TO PLAYOFFS
As the first-half champions in the WCL North, Kelowna has already locked up a spot in the WCL Playoffs, come August...the Falcons have never won a WCL Championship and it is the team’s first playoff appearance since 2015.
LEADERS AT THE HALF
The AppleSox hold leads in four of the six major WCL statistical categories at the halfway mark...Evan Johnson is tied for the league lead with 7 home runs, and holds the outright advantage with 36 runs batted in...Collin Maier solely leads the league with 5 pitching victories...Hunter Boyd has tossed the league’s highest strikeout total with 38.
The AppleSox are a tremendous 8-1 in first games of series, and have won eight straight after losing the 2017 season-opener back on June 2 at Walla Walla...during that stretch, Wenatchee has had four game ones at home in league play, and has won each of those first games wearing the white, diamond logo uniforms.
REDHAWK POWER SURGE
Jake Taylor (2) and Jacob Prater combined to hit three of the AppleSox four home runs at Cowlitz (Adrian Vela)...the two Seattle U players are a combined 10x24 over the last five games and Prater is the hottest on the team, with a .500 average over the last five games.
FIRST VS THE FALCONS
Wenatchee has not yet faced Kelowna this season...the AppleSox are 5-5 in their last 10 meetings with Kelowna...last year in six meetings, neither team was able to win two-consecutive games and the series ended in an even 3-3 split...Wenatchee will visit Kelowna later this month, July 14-16 for a three-game series up north...Kelowna is the all-time most frequented opponent for the AppleSox (68-27).
