YAKIMA, WA - Two big innings catalyzed the Yakima Valley Pippins’ 8-3 win over the Wenatchee AppleSox on Saturday night at Yakima County Stadium.
After the AppleSox scored first in a game for the first time this season, the Pippins scored four times in the first inning and then four more times in the sixth inning to record a five-run victory over the AppleSox to claim the series.
Wenatchee scored first thanks to a two-out home run by Ryan Altenberger in the first inning. In the third, the Sox added a run when Johnny Graham reached first on an error, went to second on a wild pitch and then scored on a single by Tyler Detloff.
An inning later, Kodie Kolden doubled in Brett Gillis after Gillis walked with one out. The Sox were down by one at this point, but the Pippins recorded a big sixth inning to knock off the AppleSox for the second consecutive night.
