Falcons close out season at Elks vs Sweets

Coming off a sweep at the hands of Bellingham, Kelowna won't qualify for the West Coast League playoffs

The Kelowna Falcons will finish the 2016 WCL this weekend at home

With the playoffs officially out of reach, the Kelowna Falcons will put closure to their 2016 West Coast League baseball season this weekend at Elks Stadium.

The Falcons will host the Walla Walla Sweets in a three-game set beginning Friday in Kelowna. First pitch is 6:35 p.m.

The Falcons were eliminated from post season contention this week after being swept in a three-game series by the Bellingham Bells.

The Bells (15-9) are a win away from clinching the North Division’s second half title.

The Sweets, who are 12-11 heading into tonight’s action, are still technically in the race to catch the Bells.

The Victoria Harbourcats clinched the first half North title and have a bye into the opening round of the playoffs.

In their first season under rookie field manager Bryan Donohue, Kelowna is 11-13 in the second half of the season, and 24-27 overall.

The season finale on Sunday night goes at 6:05 p.m.

The Falcons are holding a special Fan and Host Family Appreciation Night.
