Kelowna Falcons slip to 0-5

Bend Elks defeat Kelowna in West Coast League action Sunday, series finale between the teams on Monday at Elks Stadium

The Kelowna Falcons fell for the fifth straight time to open the 2013 West Coast League season season after the Bend Elks flexed their offensive muscle with a 14-3 victory on 17 hits Sundsat at Elks Stadium.

The Falcons jumped out in front in the bottom of the first inning on RBI singles from Jarryd Klemm and Nolan Johnson, their first of the summer.

However of the course of the next two innings, Falcons’ starter Nolan Savage would walk five batters and in the process give up the lead as the Elks would score three times.

In the bottom of the third the Falcons would tie it again on a Klemm sac fly to score Cody Andreychuk.

Cue the muscle flexing, in the fourth and fifth innings, the Elks would score three runs in each to give them a comfortable lead off relievers Tanner Collins and Josh Spence.  The two relievers would also account for five more walks for a game total of 10.

In the eighth the Elks showed why they are a threat in the South Division putting five more runs on the board, four of them with two outs.  Tyler Servalis, whose father played in the Major Leagues with four different teams, collected a two run double.

Savage recorded the loss in three innings of work, while Cory Mack of Bend picked up his first win of the summer despite giving up 10 hits.

The Falcons will try and salvage a game in the series finale with the Elks on Monday evening at 6:35.  Marc Andre Habeck will make his second start of the year.  It’s also Dollar Dog Night, hotdogs are only $1.
