Wenatchee Football Preps for Upcoming Season

WENATCHEE, WA – The Wenatchee Panther football team is getting a good chance to prepare for the upcoming season with this week’s Wenatchee Football Camp. 13 other teams from throughout the state are in town going through drills and providing the Panthers a good challenge at every step. Wenatchee varsity coach Scott Devereaux says it’s been a good camp so far for his team, despite some injuries…

Looking ahead at the Big Nine schedule, Devereaux says the battle for league supremacy is up in the air…

The Panthers will have a few weeks off following this camp to prepare for their pre-season workouts August 15th. Their first game will be August 31st at Mt. Si High School in Snoqualmie.

Morenco Delivers RBI, North Over South in All Star Game

The North beat the South 10-6 in the West Coast League All Star Game last night in Port Angeles. And the Wenatchee AppleSox were well-represented, with Curtis Bafus getting the start on the mound and Cory Meyer behind home plate…

So Bafus goes an inning, allowing no runs and a hit. Mason Morenco goes 1-for-3 with an RBI and Cory Meyer goes 1-for-2 with a walk. Jeremy Yelland didn’t get into the game. Cesar Lopez of the Walla Walla Sweets and Kyle Shimpf of the Port Angeles Lefties were selected as co-MVP’s.

AppleSox Host Portland to Start Second Half of Season

Now that the All Star game is over, its back to play tonight across the West Coast League…
The Wenatchee AppleSox host the Portland Pickles for the first of three games tonight at Paul Thomas, Sr. Field. First pitch is at 7:05. The rest of the WCL has Corvallis at Victoria; Yakima Valley hosting Port Angeles; Bellingham at Walla Walla; and Kelowna hosting Bend.

Segura Smacks Homer, American League Tops Nationals

Jean Segura wasn’t selected to the American League All-Star team when rosters were initially announced, but after a strong push from fans, teammates and the Mariners’ marketing department, the shortstop earned a spot via the Camping World Final Vote.

Segura showed the voters they made the right choice on Tuesday night in Washington, D.C., when he hammered a tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning to help the AL to an 8-6, 10-inning victory in the All-Star Game presented by Mastercard.
Segura’s night probably would have landed him the MVP award had it not been for a slip up by teammate Edwin Diaz in the 9th.

Leading 5-3, the American League/Seattle closer gave up a game-tying, 2-run home run to Cincinnati’s Scooter Gennett. Diaz ended up with the win, however, when Houston’s Alex Bregman untied it in the top of the 10th with a solo home run and was voted the game’s MVP. There was a record 10 home runs hit in last night’s All Star Game.

The Mariners get back into the second half of the season at home Friday with the first of three games against the Chicago White Sox.
