Bells Crush AppleSox

07/23/2017 8:28 PM

Behind Chase Illig's two homeruns and four long balls as a team on the evening, the Bellingham Bells (22-19, 6-8) took down the Wenatchee AppleSox (22-19, 7-7) 12-6 at Paul Thomas Field in Wenatchee Sunday evening. 

Illig, a catcher from West Viriginia smacked a pair of two run homeruns, his 10th and 11th of the season, tying him with Jordan Qsar (Corvallis, 2017) and Dan Mayer (Medford, 2015) for most homeruns in a single season in WCL history. 

Joining in one the homerun parade were Stanford's Kyle Stowers,with his his fifth of the summer, immdeiately following Illig's second of the game, to go back to back. Ryan Medonza of Long Beach State lifted his third home run of the season as well for Bellingham, all part of the team's 12 run performance. 

Bellingham crossed runs in the second, third, fifth, sixth and eight innings, including four runs in the third on two homeruns, three runs in the fifth frame on two more homeruns and three runs in the eighth thanks in part to an Austin Pinorini two RBI single. 

That was well more than Zach Pettway needed on the bump for Bellingham. The UCLA Bruin twirled a gem for Bellingham, tossing six innings, allowing just two runs, both in the second inning, and setting a new season high in strikeouts for any Bells pitcher with 12 Ks. The 12 strikeouts for Pettway included fanning six of the final seven batters he retired, and nearly doubled the 2017 Bells' previous high of seven strikeouts, held by himself and Holden Powell.

Tanner Vinlith made his Bells debut in the seventh inning allowing two runs to cross while striking out one, and Trevor DeLaite shut the door for Bellingham, firing two frames and surrendering two runs while punching out two. 

8 of the 9 Bells starters had a hit in the win, including Austin Shenton who raised his average to .407 with a 2 for 4 game, Pinorini who drove in three runs on a 2 for 4 performance, and Colby Barrick who chipped in a 1 for 4 with a walk effort, including an RBI triple.

Bellingham improved to 22-19 overall, 6-8 in the second half, two and a half games behind first place Victoria, while Wenatchee drops to 22-19 overall and 7-7 in the second half.  

Bellingham returns to action tomorrow night at Paul Thomas Field in Wenatchee to finish their three game set against the AppleSox. First pitch is set for 7:05, you can join Tom Prizeman on the Bells Radio Network with the pregame show at 6:50 on Mixlr.com/BellinghamBells.
