Nine Game Roady Begins

Friday night the Falcons open their longest road trip of the season, a nine-game roady beginning in Victoria. The trip also makes stops in Nanaimo and Cowlitz.

Offensively the Falcons bats have come alive as of late winning four of their last five games. In that loss they still belted out 14 hits and scored eight runs. Over this stretch they have outscored their opponents 33-18 and will be looking for more in Victoria.

This is the second time these two teams will meet this season after the Harbourcats took two of three at Elks Stadium in early June. They would take advantage of shaky pitching and outscored the Falcons 22-16. That series has allowed the Harbourcats to sit two games up on the Falcons in the standings as the first half of the season winds down.

The Harbourcats are returning home to meet the Falcons after losing their last two games in Wenatchee and find themselves five games back of the Applesox for first place in the standings.

So far this season the road has not been overly kind to the Falcons with a 3-6 record, however the run production has been almost identical getting outscored 33-32.

Friday night the Falcons will send righty Carson Kimball (3-0) to the bump. One of his three wins this season was against Victoria back on June 4th. He didn’t allow a run, nor a hit coming out of the bullpen and struck out three. The Harbourcats will counter with righty Ryne Palmer (0-2) from Arizona. He threw four innings at Elks Stadium coughing up three runs on five hits against the Falcons in a no decision.

Fans can watch the game live from Victoria HERE with the first pitch at 6:35pm.

The Falcons don’t return to Elks Stadium until July 16th to meet the Kamloops NorthPaws. Book your summer parties now, connect with Alex Draper at adraper29@shaw.ca and let the Falcons take care of everything for your party, including the clean-up. Call today to reserve your date!
