Kelowna jumped out in front in the 5th for good when they made it 3-2 on Ben Gamba’s RBI groundout, giving him an RBI in 7 of 8 games this season.
The Falcons added their insurance run in the 7th after Lane Lacrone went 1st to 3rd on an errant pick off throw. Kirby McGuire would hit a Sac Fly to cash him in.
Elias Bedolla picked up his 2nd win of the WCL season, going 6 strong innings giving up 2 runs on 6 hits, and picked up 3 strike outs.
