Shenton, who starred this past spring at Bellevue College (JC), leads the West Coast League in batting with a sizzling .548 average. The sophomore-to-be at FIU and Belligham native went 9-for-13 this past week with a homer and 8 RBI for the WCL North first-place Bells.
Mechals tossed a gem in his Kelowna debut twirling 8 scoreless innings vs. Yakima Valley on June 18 to earn the win in the Falcons 2-1 home victory. Mechals allowed 4 hits while walking one and striking out 5. Kelowna sits in second place in the WCL North at 8-6, one game behind Bellingham.
As a freshman at Western Oregon, Mechals led the Wolves in ERA (1.59), appearances (15) and saves (7) while going 2-1 and striking out 37 over 22.1 innings pitched and walking only 6. Following the spring season, he was named to the 2017 American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings NCAA Division II All-West Region Second Team. A native of McMinnville, Oregon, he was also an All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) Second Team selection.
