Sweets win at home, finish season on road

The Sweets wrapped up the home portion of their 2012 schedule with a 7-3 victory over Kelowna on Sunday night. Walla Walla will now finish its season with four games in Bellingham.

Now for some notes from around the ballpark:
- The Sweets are now 22-28 thanks to the victory on Sunday.
- Walla Walla finished above .500 at home for the first time in team history, finishing 14-13.
- The Sweets now face Bellingham for four games. The Sweets and Bells split four games in Walla Walla.
- J.J. Robinson earned his first win of the summer, allowing just one run on five hits over seven innings. He walked five and struck out five. His start is the longest outing for a Sweets starting pitcher against Kelowna this summer.
- Ben Ruff went 4-for-4 with two runs scored batting ninth for the Sweets. It is his first four-hit game of the summer.
- Brett Jacobs extended his hitting streak to six games with a three-run home run in the seventh inning. The home run is the first of the summer for Jacobs. He now has 23 RBI on the season.
- Alex Bonczyk had two hits and drove in three runs. He now has 22 RBI and 21 runs scored on the season, becoming the first player in team history to accomplish that feat. 
- Both Simon Anderson and Joe Arlt were able to escape jams with double plays in the final two innings. A line drive to first turned into an inning-ending double play in the ninth.
- Matt Imhof will start on Monday after missing his start on Saturday. He will be in search of his first win of the summer.
- Bellingham has already clinched a playoff berth and will face Wenatchee in the East Division Championship Round. Wenatchee's magic number is 1 to clinch another East Division title.
