Wenatchee Takes Series Finale, 9-4

A big night by the AppleSox offense was to much to overcome as the Black Bears fell short in the series finale Sunday night from Paul Thomas Sr. Field. Two errors in two different innings would lead to three runs in each frame for the Wenatchee AppleSox, as they trounced Cowlitz 9-4 to remain two games back of the Bend Elks for the wild card with six games remaining.

The Black Bears took an early 1-0 lead with Kort Peterson scoring on a groundout after leading off the game with a walk, stealing second and advancing to third on an error.

It was all the offense could muster for the visiting Black Bears until eighth inning with Wenatchee leading big 9-1.

Peterson would once again lead things off with a walk to begin the rally. With one out Daniel Orr drove in Peterson all the way from first with a double into the left field corner. Jonathan Serven followed with a walk and both runners moved up on a wild pitch. Elliott Cary dumped a ball into right field two drive in both runners and bring the Black Bears within five.

Cowlitz would threaten in the ninth inning but failed to score as the game ended with the bases loaded.

The Black Bears will begin their first ever series against the Yakima Valley Pippinson Monday night with first pitch scheduled at 7:05. Jake Menzhuber (0-1, 6.30 ERA) will take the mound opposite Eli Morgan (7-0, 3.00) and the Pippins. Tune in to Shane Downey  on AM 1400 KEDO and streaming live on cowlitzblackbears.com beginning at 6:50.
