Falcons walk-off Bells, open series vs Sweets

Kelowna plays final regular season series at home this week vs Walla Walla

After a wild and dramatic walk-off win on Sunday night against Bellingham, the Kelowna Falcons will open their final home series of the regular season tonight against the Walla Walla Sweets. First pitch at Elks Stadium ins 6:35 p.m.

The Falcons (7-14) have six games remaining, closing out their schedule with three more games this weekend in Walla Walla.

By virture of their 17-10 record in the first half of the season, the Falcons have already secured a place in the North Division final next week against the yet-to-be determined second half winner.

Kelowna is coming off a series win over the Bells at Elks Stadium, capped off by a 15-14 victory Sunday night.

After Bellingham had scored three times in the top of the ninth to tie the game, the Falcons’ Taylor Wright provide the game-winning single in the bottom of the inning to end a wild, see-saw affair.

“We have very similar lineups,” Falcons manager Bryan Donohue said. “Everyone was going out there and competing. It’s funny how games like this can sometimes come together. I think the biggest thing for us is when the game calmed down. We were able to tag on a couple of big runs that ultimately put us in control.”

In Donohue’s opinion, the story of the night was Falcons reliever Ian Turner who picthed 5 2/3 innings of relief. “Turner extended himself longer than he had all summer. It’s too bad we couldn’t get the victory for him. We had a couple unlucky things happen late to prevent that. He was great for us.”
