Wildcats Go To 5th Game to Down Wenatchee
EAST WENATCHEE, WA – A big crowd was on hand last night at Eastmont where the Wildcats hosted Wenatchee in a Big 9 volleyball match. The back and forth contest would go the way of the Panthers in the opener 25-23 as Maeghan Wulf would provide the game-winner.
In the second, Eastmont would turn the tables as Britt Vaughn came to life with the kill and the Wildcats won it 25-18. Vaughn would be serving with the game on the line in the 3rd and it just goes out with Wenatchee winning 25-20.
Eastmont would battle back from behind in the 4th game and surpass Wenatchee to force a fifth and final game by winning 25-20.

Herrmann’s Walk-Off Home Run Puts M’s Over A’s
The Mariners used 26-players, 10 of which pitchers, in last night’s game against Oakland. And it would be the final substitute of the game that would make the biggest difference…
Backup catcher Chris Herrmann hit a walk-off, 2-run home run in the bottom of the 11th inning to help Seattle beat the Athletics 10-8 at Safeco Field. It was his 2nd homer as a Mariner and 24th of his 7-year Major League career.
Herrmann’s heroics came after a rough start for Seattle’s Mike Leake. He had his shortest outing of the season, lasting only an inning and a third after being shelled for 6-runs on 8-hits. Nine guys out of the bullpen held things pretty much in check from there with Alex Colome getting the win by pitching a scoreless top of the 11th.
Nelson Cruz and Jean Segura also went deep for Seattle, who finishes the season-series with Oakland tonight at 7:10 as Felix Hernandez starts against the A’s Edwin Jackson.
