Kelowna Falcons

Season Over

The Kelowna Falcons lost to the Victoria HarbourCats by a score of 11-5 in game two of the playoffs. With the loss, the Falcons season is now over. The Cats will move on to play the winner of the series between the Yakima Valley Pippins and the Corvallis Knights.

The Cats used a big four-run fifth inning to really break the game open. Kelowna rallied for a two-spot late, but the contest was already decided. Alex McGarry, the Falcons first baseman, paced the club with two of their eight total hits.

Bryan Donohue, the Falcons skipper, gave his thoughts on the final game of Kelowna’s season. “I thought that our starter Andrew Alvarez pitched really well. We had some chances and left a lot of runners on base. It’s disappointing that our offense hit a lull the last few games. Credit to their bats, they were able put some good swings on some pitches. They’ll be a good team in the next round.”

It was the first time in Donohue’s two years that the Falcons had made the playoffs. He called the season a success because of it. “Our goal from day one was to get to make the playoffs. It was such a great moment when we clinched the spot in the end of the first round. I told the guys how proud I was of them these last two weeks. It was a great group of guys and we became a really tight knit group late. To have a summer ball team come together like we did is a victory in my books.”
