Closing in

Walla Walla vs. Bend

- Walla Walla's 3-1 victory on Thursday night coupled with Bellingham's extra-inning loss to Cowlitz has the Sweets just a game back of the final playoff spot in the East.
- Aaron Hoverson picked up his first victory of the summer with his third quality start.
- Zach Wentz was hit twice last night and has been hit nine times this summer, good enough for second in the league.
- Alex Stanford had three hits for the fourth time this summer and also has a four-hit game.
- With a double in the eighth inning last night, three of Scott Gottschling's last five hits have been for extra-bases.  He homered twice against Klamath Falls over the weekend.
- Denver Chavez reached four times last night without collecting a hit.  He reached twice on errors, walked and was hit by a pitch.  He also scored a run for the third straight game.
- Andrew Mendenhall has collected a hit in 22 of his last 27 games.
- Austin Heaps has hit safely in seven of his last eight games overall.
- After playing three games against Kelowna, the Sweets will face Bend again on Tuesday in Bend.
- Walla Walla lost eight of nine at home before facing Kitsap  last week.  The Sweets have now won four of their last five at Borleske Stadium and are 9-11 at home this summer.
