Falcons’ talons can’t grasp 1st series sweep of season

The Kelowna Falcons return to Elks Stadium Friday night

The Kelowna Falcons were only a few innings away from their first series sweep of the season before it all feel apart.

Kelowna had a 3-0 lead after three innings, but the home team Wenatchee AppleSox used the later innings to break the game open and win game three of the series 16-8.

The Falcons suffered late inning pitching troubles as the AppleSox took over in the seventh and eighth innings, sending a grand total of 14 runs in between the two innings to crush the Falcons’ hopes of a series sweep.
