Falcons Slugger Dan Pruitt of Seminole State College
The West Coast League’s Moss Adams Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week, as announced by league commissioner Rob Neyer, are Seminole State College sophomore-to-be first baseman Dan Pruitt of the Kelowna Falcons and University of San Francisco senior-to-be pitcher Landen Bourassa of the Corvallis Knights for the week of August 6-12.

Pruitt slugged the Falcons to the playoffs, going 12-for-22 for the week with 5 home runs and 10 RBIs. In the WCL North Divisional Series, Pruitt went 5-for-8 with two homers versus a very formidable pitching staff in the Bellingham Bells. Last night, Pruitt doubled, homered and knocked in 3 in the Falcons decisive 7-6 victory at Bellingham, advancing Kelowna to the West Coast League Championship Series for the first time since 2015.

For the summer, Pruitt, a 2018 WCL all-star, hit .331 with 7 homers and 26 RBIs.

Landen Bourassa, who posted a league-low 1.96 ERA this season, turned in another stellar performance holding the powerful Portland Pickles to only one run over 8 innings in his game two WCL South Divisional Series start, which the two-time defending WCL champion Knights won 4-1 in 11 innings to advance to the WCLCS where they will meet Kelowna. Bourassa, who started the 2018 WCL All-Star Game for the South, gave up only 4 hits and walked none while striking out 8 at Walker Stadium.

For the regular season, the right-hander from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada went 5-1 over 8 appearances, 7 starts and 46 innings pitched this summer. The Knights ace struck out 39 while walking only 9.

This past spring, Bourassa made 14 starts and went 8-4 with a 3.02 ERA for the Dons of the West Coast Conference.
