Sweets swept, return home

The Sweets jumped out to a 5-0 lead on Sunday night but saw it disappear in a 6-5, 13-inning, loss to Klamath Falls. Walla Walla was swept for the third time this season and finished its road trip 2-4.

Now for some notes from around the ballpark:
- The Sweets were swept for the the third time this season, all on the road. They finished their road trip with a 2-4 record and will now open an eight-game homestand.
- In fact, 16 of their final 20 games are at Borleske Stadium.
- The Sweets open their homestand against Cowlitz. Walla Walla took two-of-three from the Black Bears last week in Longview, Wash.
- Kalani Brackenridge extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a single in the 13th inning on Sunday. He is hitting .308 over that stretch.
- Jarrod Turner had two more hits on Sunday and has now hit safely in six of his last seven games.
- Nick Vilter started the Sweets scoring with a solo home run in the second inning. It was his third of the season.
- It was also the first run the Sweets had scored since the sixth inning on Thursday.
- Last week, the Sweets hit .192 against the Black Bears. Pitching-wise, the Sweets allowed just eight runs on 18 hits in the three games.
- The Sweets have lost their last four games and are just 4-6 in their last 10.
- With 20 games remaining, the Sweets find themselves 10 games behind Wenatchee for first place and seven games behind Bellingham for the second and final playoff spot. The Sweets trailed the Bells by five games with 21 to play last summer.
- Of the final 20 games, the Sweets face the Applesox four more times, the Bells six more times and Kelowna four times.
