Sox & M’s Win, Wenatchee Team Places 1st

WENATCHEE, WA – Sam Wong was strong on the mound and Connor McCord helped at the plate as the Wenatchee AppleSox topped the Yakima Valley Pippins in West Coast League Baseball Sunday 8-to-1…
Wong improved to 3-and-oh, allowing 1-run on 4-hits with 3 strikeouts. Connor McCord was 3-for-5 with 2-runs and an RBI while Evan Williams smacked a solo home run for the AppleSox. The win came after a heartbreaking loss Saturday 5-4 as Wenatchee’s bullpen allowed 4-runs in the bottom of the 8th. The two teams will play the rubber match of the three-game set tonight at 6:35.

Also in West Coast League play Sunday, as we take a look at the Les Schwab Scoreboard…
Brady Heid and Matthew Christian each hit 2-run home runs in a 6-run 7th inning for Port Angeles as the Lefties downed the Victoria HarbourCats 8-6.

Matt James was 2-for-3 with a home run to lead Bellingham past Bend 7-to-2.

Cowlitz scored 3-runs in the 6th inning to break a 3-3 tie and poured it on from there in a 10-3 win over Walla Walla. The Bears also went long ball in the game with three home runs.

Beau Phillips hit a 2-run home run in the 3rd after Chandler Anderson led off the inning with a solo homer to lead Corvallis past Portland 6-3.

Coming up tonight across the West Coast League…
Victoria is at Port Angeles this afternoon at 3:05. Wenatchee has one more at Yakima Valley at 6:35. That’s the same start time for Bellingham hosting Bend and Cowlitz at Walla Walla. Portland plays host to Corvallis at 7:05 tonight.

Healy Hits Two Three-Run Homers as M’s Top White Sox

Ryon Healy was a one man wrecking crew yesterday at Safeco Field, hitting 2, 3-run home runs to lead the Mariners past Chicago 8-to-2…
On a sun-splashed day at Safeco Field, Seattle scored 5-runs in the first inning off White Sox starter Reynoldo Lopez. That allowed Mariner starter Marco Gonzalez to work into a nice groove, earning his 11th win on the season, going 6-and-a-third, allowing 2-runs on 4-hits with 6 strikeouts.

Manager Scott Servais says he was very happy to see Healy respond after sitting out of the lineup on Saturday…

Seattle has the day off today before hosting San Francisco in the first of two games tomorrow.

Also in the American League West on Sunday…
Yovani Gallardo had his best start of the season and Rougned Odor homered and drove in three runs as Texas shut out Cleveland 5-nothing.

Matt Chapman’s walk off hit in the bottom of the 10th gave Oakland a 6-5 win over San Francisco.

Ian Kinsler, Cole Calhoun, Mike Trout and Justin Upton all went deep for Los Angeles as the Angels pounded Houston 14-5 to salvage the final game of the three-game series.

So everybody came out of the weekend the same as they went in, with Houston leading Seattle by 5-games in the A-L West and Oakland 3-back of the Mariners.

The 12 kids from the valley won the Pacific Northwest Regional tournament over the weekend in Moscow, Idaho. They now head to the World Series in Phenix City, Alabama, which is a very expensive proposition. If you’d like to donate through Wenatchee Youth Baseball to help them cover the expenses of travel, lodging and food, you can do so directly at any Cashmere Valley Bank branch.
