Kelowna Falcons

Richmond & Fekete

It was a good trip to Nanaimo for the Falcons winning two of the three games. Both the offence and pitching staff seemed to have found a grove against the NightOwls as we are proud to announce the Player and Pitcher of the Series presented by Wildfire Marketing.

Player of the Series
CJ Richmond – Western Illinois University, Indianapolis, IN

He played two of the three games in Nanaimo and was dialed in. He hit .500 against the NightOwls highlighted by a three-run homerun in game two, which was his second big blast of the year. He also collected a double, tallied four RBIs, scored a pair of runs, had three walks and eight putouts. He showed his versatility playing at first base and in rightfield during the series.

He was simply outstanding on Tuesday night in game two of the series in Nanaimo. He had the longest outing of any of the Falcons pitchers so far this season throwing seven complete innings. He struck out 11 batters while give up two runs on four hits. His performance earned him his first win of the summer campaign.
