WENATCHEE, WA - The AppleSox picked up their eighth straight win with a 16-2 win over the Ridgefield Raptors on Tuesday night at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium.

Gavin Gorrell (4-2) struck out a season-high seven hitters in five innings and the Sox scored six times in the sixth to pick up their 13th consecutive home victory.

Every hitter reached base at least once and the AppleSox strung together four multi-run innings. Blake Klassen reached base four times and drove in a run and Torin Montgomery hit a 2-RBI double in each of the first two innings. The AppleSox scored runs in all but three innings.

Montgomery doubled in two in the first inning and then again in the second, but only after Jermaine Ducham led off with a single and then scored on a wild pitch with the bases loaded. Shortly after, Kody Darcy drove in a run with an RBI groundout as a part of a four-run inning.

The Raptors scored twice in the third, but stranded the bases loaded in it and the fourth innings. Klassen hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth and the Sox got three more in the fifth when Jermaine Ducham drove in one with a single and Jason Harayda plated two with a single of his own.

The AppleSox sent 11 men to the plate in the sixth and scored six times. Each of the first seven hitters reached base before an out was recorded.
