WENATCHEE, Wash. – The Wenatchee AppleSox dropped the second game of their three-game set with the Bellingham Bells on Wednesday night at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium.
Bellingham evened up the series of six games in six days between the opponents after the AppleSox won the first game on Tuesday night, 6-2.
For the second straight game, Bellingham struck first. The Bells used a walk, a balk, a wild pitch and a sacrifice fly to plate their first run of the game in the top of the second. They added another in the third to take a two-run lead and would hold a multi-run lead for the rest of the game
Matt Jones hit a three-run shot in the fifth inning to pad the Bells lead and make it 5-0, Bellingham, but the AppleSox responded in the bottom of the inning.
Evan Williams hit a two-run double to right-center field to get the Sox on the board. Dawson Day reached on an infield single and A.D. Pena walked with two outs before Williams plated both a batter later.
The Bells added another run in the top of the seventh for their final run of the game.
Pena was a bright spot for the AppleSpx offense, going 1-for-2 with a double and two walks. He scored one of the AppleSox two runs.
The series in Wenatchee concludes tomorrow night when the Sox host the Bells at 7:05 p.m. Michael Spellacy goes against Nick Nastrini of Bellingham in the series finale.
