AppleSox: Tyson Yasmane
The AppleSox got in the win column at home with a 9-2 victory over the Northwest Honkers last night. Trailing 2-0 entering the bottom of the fourth, the AppleSox rallied to take a lead they would not relinquish, scoring all nine of their run in their final five innings at the plate.
Sam Wong was strong on the mound, becoming the third AppleSox starter through five games this year to toss at least six innings and pick up the victory. He allowed two runs in seven innings and struck out five in his first start of the summer.
At the plate, John Sage and Mason Marenco led the way. Sage reached base four base times and Marenco hit a pair of RBI doubles. Alix Garcia drew three walks and Jordan Rathbone had a second consecutive multi-RBI game with an RBI triple and a sacrifice fly.
Wednesday night marked the third straight game in which the AppleSox both scored seven or more runs and had a five-run inning. Last night, the big inning came in the sixth when the AppleSox sent 10 men to the plate.
Washington Trust Night.
Following Thursday's game with Highline, the AppleSox hit the road for a seven-game road trip. It will start with the Sox' first-ever game against the Portland Pickles in the City of Roses.
