Nine game road trip!

Walla Walla Sweets @ Wenatchee Applesox

- The Sweets have arrived in Wenatchee are ready to start their nine-game road trip.  It is the longest road trip of the summer for Walla Walla and it starts at the home of the league's best team.
- What was all that almost there talk the other night? A night after the Sweets played one of their best games of the summer, they were trounced at home 9-0.  W2 managed just two hits for a sold out Borleske Stadium.
- Alex Stanford, Sean Santschi and Tim Culligan are all returning to the field where they played last summer and won a West Coast League title.
- Speaking of Paul Thomas Stadium, the wind is gusting and blowing straight out to right.
- The Sweets are the only team in the league that does not have an OBP above .300 at .293.
- Walla Walla managed just 11 hits in the three game series earlier this summer.
- Alex Stanford and Kevin Hawk were both 2-6 in the series against Wenatchee.
- Wenatchee won 14 straight games at one point this summer but have gone 6-3 over their last nine.
- Breland Almadova has hit in 18-straight, setting a Wenatchee program record.  He's hitting .375 with 33 hits in 88 at-bats.
- Alex Phillips was great against the Sweets earlier this summer, allowing just one run over seven innings.  He struck out six and has won four straight decisions after losing on Opening Night.
