Gresham opens second half with a win
WEST COAST LEAGUE BASEBALL
Wednesday, July 6
The Gresham GreyWolves started the second half of the West Coast League season in the right foot with a 3-2 road win in Kelowna on Wednesday night.
GreyWolves starter Andrew Heideman went the distance, giving up 10 hits but only two runs. His biggest challenge came in the sixth inning when the Falcons got back-to-back singles from Brendt Citta and Bowen Ogata to start the inning. A sacrifice bunt advanced them into scoring position, but neither would find their way home when Heideman struck out the next batter and got the last hitter to line out to first base.
It was smooth sailing the rest of the way for Heideman, who didn't allow a Kelowna player past first base over the final three innings.
All of the game's scoring came in the fourth inning with Ben Klenke producing what proved to be the winning runs on a single to right field.
The GreyWolves (12-16) finish their series in Kelowna at 6:35 p.m. tonight before traveling to Wenatchee over the weekend and return home to take on North Division leader Victoria in a three-game set beginning at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday at Oslund Field.
