Kelowna Falcons

An Island W

The Falcons got back into the win column on Saturday night in Victoria, beating the Harbourcats 4-3 behind some outstanding starting pitching and a three-run eighth inning.

In their first at bats the Falcons picked up an early run after Jeriah Lewis doubled to open the game, he was moved to third on a wild pitch, then Jaden Parsons brought him in with a sacrifice fly.

Starting pitcher Nick Woodcock was dominating in his 4.2 innings of work. He struck out seven and gave up just one hit but finished with a no decision. Kieren Hall collected the win after 2.1 innings of shutout baseball while Dylan Berry recorded a save.

In the eighth inning the Falcons scored three times behind a CJ Richmond ground rule double and a Troy McCain two-run homer. McCain was making his debut and played in rightfield.

On Sunday afternoon the Falcons (3-4) will face the Harbourcats (5-5) in the series rubber match and the final time they meet this regular season.

Hiroyuki Yamada will get the start for the visitors. He recorded the win last Sunday throwing five innings against the Harbourcats at Elks Stadium and struck out three. Following the matinee the Falcons will head an hour north and open a series with the Nanaimo NightOwls on Monday.
