Mechals Earns POW

The West Coast League Pitcher of the Week, as announced by interim league president Tony Bonacci, for the week of June 12-18 is Falcons righty Kade Mechals.

The freshman tossed a gem in his Falcons debut twirling eight scoreless innings last night against the Yakima Valley Pippins to earn the 2-1 home victory.  He allowed four hits while walking one and striking out five.

Kelowna sits in second place in the WCL North at 8-6, one game behind Bellingham.

Before the Falcons, Mechals at Western Oregon led the Wolves in ERA (1.59), appearances (15) and saves (7) while going 2-1 and striking out 37 over 22.1 innings pitched and walking only 6. Following the spring season, he was named to the 2017 American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings NCAA Division II All-West Region Second Team. A native of McMinnville, Oregon, he was also an All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) Second Team selection.
