Chris Flexin bounced back from his worst start as a professional to have his best start last night, pitching 7-innings to help Seattle shut out Texas 5-nothing. Flexin allowed just 4 of the 24-hitters he faced to reach base in his 7-innings, striking out 6 and walking one.
Offensively, the Mariners got things going in the third with back-to-back home runs…
That would be plenty of offensive for Flexin, but Seattle added to the lead with 3-more in the 7th…
Manager Scott Servais says it was nice to see Flexin bounce back after what happened to him last time out in San Diego…
Seattle and Texas play again tonight at 7:10 with Justus Sheffield facing Jordan Lyles.
In the American League West last night, the only other game saw Oakland score 5-runs in the 6th inning to beat Los Angeles 5-nothing.
AppleSox baseball FINALLY returns Tuesday
The local baseball team will start its season Tuesday at Paul Thomas, Sr. Stadium…
Of course, we’re talking about the Wenatchee AppleSox. For the first time since August of 2019, the local nine will take the field against the Northwest Star Academy.
AppleSox owner Jose Oglesby and general manager Allie Schank joined us a on Wake Up Wenatchee Valley. COVID-19 wiped out last season and still has an impact on seating for this summer…
The roster has been expanded to 40-players this year which has put the onus on finding host-families. They still have about 16-players to find homes for in the valley, so if you’d like to help, call the AppleSox office at 665-6900.
