Falcons In Nanaimo

Monday night the Falcons open a three-game series with the newly expanded Nanaimo NightOwls on Vancouver Island.

The Falcons (3-5) managed just one win in Victoria this past weekend with runs difficult to score. Troy McCain made his debut and was easily the best hitter blasting a pair of homeruns with his solo homer accounting for the only scoring on Sunday afternoon.

Following this past weekend the Falcons find themselves two games back in the standings with three wins on the season after eight games. Our club has played the fewest games in the North Division to date.

The NightOwls (5-6) had success this past weekend beating the Ridgefield Raptors in two of their three games. With their five wins they are 1.5 games back of the front running Kamloops NorthPaws. They have showed offensive pop in their line-up belting 12 homeruns compared to the Falcons three. Aaron Marsh leads his club with a .476 average and has collected a team high eight RBIs.

On the bump in game one of this series will be Jasper Nelson. He lasted 4.2 innings in his only other start this summer striking out four and finishing with a no decision. The senior-to-be at Spokane Community College was 4-0 this past spring with 59 punch outs and recorded a 3.18 ERA.

On the other side the NIghtOwls will counter with Kyle Rosenfeld. He’s a lengthy lefthander from Western Illinois, the same school as CJ Richmond. He’s 1-0 with a 4.00 ERA making his third appearance and has struck out nine batters.

The Falcons return Friday night to Elks Stadium to host the NorthPaws and a spectacular fireworks show postgame. Reserve your tickets online HERE.
