Falcons take two from Cats

The Kelowna Falcons took their first series of the young West Coast League baseball season.

The team took two of three from the visiting Victoria Harbourcats over the weekend following a 4-1 win Sunday evening at Elk Stadium.

Kelowna won two straight after dropping their season opener 7-6 Friday night.

In Sunday's rubber game the Falcons scored three times in the bottom of the fourth and held for the 4-1 victory.

Trey Kamachi, Scotland Church and Max Schuman each scored in the fourth as the offence took advantage of some sloppy Cats' defense.

Starter Jeremy Newton turned in the best start of the series throwing 5.2 shutout innings while striking out five. Riley Barr pitched the final two innings and closed the door striking out two to earn his first save of the summer.

In a game that only lasted two hours and 27 minutes the Falcons tallied just four hits, two coming from Tommy Lane.  Schuman recorded his first RBI of the season, adding an insurance run in the eighth inning.

The Falcons (2-1) will now depart on their first road trip, a three game series in Walla Walla (1-2) beginning on Tuesday against the divisional rival Sweets.  They will return home on Friday for a weekend series with the Cowlitz Black Bears.
