Sweets Eliminated from Division Series in Loss to WenatcheePosted: Updated:
From Walla Walla Sweets
WALLA WALLA, WA -- All that a head coach can ask of his ball club is to fight through difficulty without rolling over. Wednesday night at Borlekse Stadium, the Walla Walla Sweets subscribed to that idea, leaving all they had left on the field as they battled for their playoff lives, coming up short in a 6-2 loss to the Wenatchee AppleSox in Game Two of the West Coast League North Division Series. Starting pitcher Chris Lovejoy battled through 6.1 innings on the mound but took the loss after allowing four earned runs on seven hits. The victory sends Wenatchee to the WCL Championship Series against the Corvallis Knights, who knocked off the Medford Rogues in two straight games.
