Kelowna Falcons

Sweeping Feeling

The Falcons winning streak extends to three after a sweep of the Port Angeles Lefties on Wednesday night in a 9-6 victory.

Offensively the Falcons bats exploded in the final two innings scoring five runs in a comeback win. Down by a pair heading into the eighth inning the visitors showed great character getting RBI hits from Taylor Wright, Davis Todsichuk and Bo Meiklejohn to take the lead.

After Jake Roes made his Falcons debut out of the pen and shutdown the Lefties, the offence continued to work.  In the top of the ninth they tacked on two more runs.  Chris Arpan knocked in Jake Malone before Wright scored on a Connor Gurnik fielder’s choice.

The nine runs scored was an offensive high for the Falcons this season.  Malone tallied three hits and drove in a pair of runs, as did Meiklejohn on two hits.

Starter Niall Windeler threw seven innings, giving up six runs on nine hits while striking out three.  Roes collects the win after throwing two innings of shutout baseball and Braydon Price locked down the game with a save.

Following tonight’s game the Falcons (4-2) will board the bus and head home to begin a series with the Gresham GreyWolves (3-3) on Thursday night at Elks Stadium.  Tickets are available now or can be purchased at the gate beginning at 5:30pm.
