Cowlitz ends Falcons three-game win streak
The Kelowna Falcons had their three-game West Coast League winning streak snapped, falling to the Cowlitz Black Bears 6-2 Wednesday night at Elks Stadium.
The Falcons allowed six unanswered runs in the game after the Bears would combine for four doubles off six Falcons pitchers.
After scoring 23 runs in the three games against the Kitsap Bluejackets, the Falcons bats cooled off facing better pitching. Alec Cordova and Koby Gauna combined to allow two unearned runs and just six hits.
Falcons’ shortstop Pat Johnson was 2-4 and scored a run. Cameron Alvarado, Greg Friesen, Brock Slavin and Tyler Qualls tallied the club’s hits.
The Falcons will host the Black Bears again on Thursday night in game two of the three-game series. The first 150 fans will receive a complimentary autographed team ball. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with the first pitch at 6:35 p.m.
