Like a mid-July afternoon in the Okanagan, the Kelowna Sun Devils are heating up.
The U18 college prep team posted a 3-1 record this weekend after splitting a two-game series to Ridge Meadows, and then sweeping a two-game series over Langley Township.
Pitchers Alex Thompson and Dreyton Nelmes led the way, while the Sun Devils bats continue to light up the scoresheet.
“Tremendous effort from our staff this weekend, specifically Dreyton and Alex,” said coach Derek McPherson. “Both were aggressive, attacked the zone, worked ahead, and had great tempo.”
“Adam Renneberg continues to be a huge contributor offensively, now hitting .522 with three home-runs for the year.
“There are a lot of positives from his outing. Our expectation was seven of our last eight, and we’ve accomplished that to leave us at 10-6 heading into our tournament break.”
With their 10-6 record to start the 2019 season, the Sun Devils sit in third in the league.
The Sun Devils have scored 47 more runs than they have surrendered, good for second best in the league, while Kelowna has scored an average 6.25 runs per game, which is third best overall.
The Sun Devils return to action for a tournament at Elks Stadium this weekend.
