WENATCHEE - The Walla Walla Sweets lost the third game of the series here Sunday.

The Sweets couldn't convert a Friday win for the series and went down scoreless to Wenatchee's AppleSox, 5-0. The Sweets managed seven hits to Wenatchee's nine, and made one error to Wenatchee's two, but couldn't turn those gains into runs.

Wenatchee first scored in the bottom of the first and it never got closer. Wenatchee posted one in the fourth, one in the sixth and two in the seventh for the win.

Kody Young pitched the first five innings for the Sweets, allowing three runs. Reliever Jordan McLaughlin pitched one inning, allowing no runs, and Brian Biagi closed out, allowing Wenatchee's final two in the eighth.

The Sweets left 10 runners stranded in the losing affair.
