  • WENATCHEE, Wash. — Medford failed to keep the momentum from a West Coast League baseball series win over first-place Bend as the Rogues suffered a 10-2 loss to Wenatchee in the first game of a three-game series Saturday night.
    The defending WCL champion AppleSox belted out 19 hits and broke the game open with a four-run surge in the sixth inning to win going away.
    Medford (13-19) tied the game at 2-all in the third inning after Danny McNabb slapped a leadoff single, was sacrificed to second and scored on a double by Joe Chavez. After a passed ball, Kevin Davidson's RBI single plated Chavez.
    The wheels came off for the Rogues in the sixth inning after the AppleSox (18-13) loaded the bases with three straight singles and then gradually chipped away at the scoreboard.
    Bret DeRooy allowed 11 hits and four runs in five innings of work on the mound for Medford, striking out five and walking one to take the loss at Paul Thomas Field.
    Wenatchee's Beau Kerns handled the Rogues after the second inning outburst, retiring 13 in a row before leaving the game after seven innings. He struck out six and walked none.
    Connor Spencer went 5-for-5 with two runs for the AppleSox, while Grant Palmer and Bret Stephens each had three hits. Palmer and Andre Real each plated two runs.
    The series continues at 6:05 p.m. tonight.
