Kelowna made it 3-0 in the 5th when Hunter Villanueva picked up a Sac Fly to score Grimsley, who finished with 3 hits.

Walla Walla got a pair in the 6th off of Miller after an error and 3 wild pitches to make it 3-2.

The Falcons jumped back out ahead with 2 more in the 6th when Justin Flores singled and Andre Jackson drove in another with a Sac Fly.

Dalton Blackwell worked a scoreless 9th inning for his 5th save.

Other highlights for Kelowna included Brandon Oliver throwing out 4 baserunners in the first 5 innings, erasing any thought the Sweets had of scoring early.
