The West Coast League action for you on this Friday…..

Good Friday morning. Big weekend on tap with the Festival at Mount Si starting this afternoon and running through the weekend down at Si View Park in North Bend. We’ll be poking around there briefly tomorrow – for the parade – so look for us there. West Coast League baseball action from last night on this Friday morning for you.

The visting Ridgefield Raptors exploded for 13 runs over the final two innings to break a 3-3 tie and spoil the regular-season home finale last night for the Wenatchee AppleSox, winning the WCL game 16-3 at Wenatchee Valley College. North Bend’s Spencer Marenco, getting his first at-bats with Wenatchee after he signed with them earlier this week, went 0-3. He is one of three Mount Si HS grads on the roster – the other two are 2017 MSHS’ers Gavin Gorrell and Justin Lutz.

All three and their Sox teammates hopped on the bus after last night’s game for the redeye trip down to Corvallis, OR, where they will begin a series tonight with the Knights that closes out the regular season. The game is at 6:30 down at Oregon State University’s Goss Stadium.

Yakima Valley falls: The Pippins could not overcome an early 3-0 hole and fell 3-1 to the Cowlitz Black Bears in another WCL game last night, this one down at Lower Columbia College’s David Story Field in Longview. Gavin Gorrell’s cousin Grant caught the late innings in this one for YVP but had no official at-bats. Yakima Valley returned home after the game last night and will open their regular season-finale series tonight with the Walla Walla Sweets at home in Yakima. That game also starts at 6:30.
