The Wenatchee AppleSox dropped the series opener against the Port Angeles Lefties, 3-1, on Tuesday night at Paul Thomas Sr. Stadium.
Michael Cunneely delivered a dominant relief outing with seven strikeouts in four shutout innings. Both figures marked season-highs for Cunneely and also the third time that he pitched three-or-more innings. He retired each of the final nine hitters that he faced in order.
Garrett Gores (0-2) turned in a solid outing with just three runs given up over five innings but all three runs came on two different home runs. Trent Jackson hit a one-out solo homer in the first inning and then reached base again two innings later before B.Y. Choi hit a two-run homer to cap the scoring.
The AppleSox briefly tied the game up in the bottom of the second when Frankie Carney turned a soft ground ball up the middle into a two-out double and then scored on an infield single by Reeve Boyd. Carney recorded three hits for the second time this summer.
