Kelowna Falcons

Bells Sweep

Two bad innings on Saturday night led to an 8-7 loss for the Falcons at the hands of the Bellingham Bells.

For the first time in the series the Falcons jump out in front in the inning.  Tyler Brown who doubled to lead off the inning, was moved to third on a ground out, then scored on a wild pitch.

The Bells responded in their next at bats scoring four times, aided by three walks and five hits off starter Jeremy Alderman.  Only one of those four runs was earned.

Despite trailing again, the falcons bats came alive in the bottom of the second scoring four runs of their own on three hits.  Josh Croft smacked a two out, two-run double, then scored on Scotland Church’s single.  Brown also added a sacrifice fly in the inning.

The Falcons bullpen however couldn’t hold down the Bells as Brett Solano allowed another four run inning in the fifth.

In the sixth inning the Falcons fought back and scored two more runs.  Brown scoring on a bases load walk and Church on a wild pitch.   The Falcons would leave the bases loaded in the inning.

The Bells bullpen was unhittable in the final three inning, only allowing one base runner on a hit batter.

Church finished the game with three hits and an RBI, while Brown had a pair of hits with an RBI and two runs scored.

The Falcons (8-22) losing streak now reaches four and they will now depart on a nine game road trip.  The first six games of the trip will be against Klamath Falls and Medford before a couple days off for the All-Star game, then finishing the trip in Wenatchee.  The club will return home on Friday July 25 against Yakima.
