AppleSox top Sweets 11-10

The game had all the earmarks of another loss when AppleSox starter Keegan Romig couldn’t get an out in the first inning, allowing four runs on three hits with two wild pitches and a hit batsman. But in baseball, you can never judge a game by its first inning.

Trailing 7-nothing in the 4th, Wenatchee began its comeback with a four-run inning highlighted by Kodie Kolden’s 2-run single.

After Ryan Altenberger’s RBI-triple in the 5th, the AppleSox struck for four more runs in the 6th to cut the Sweet’s lead to 10-9.

In the 7th, Quinn Ayeres stepped to the plate with one on, nobody out and a 3-2 count…
