Not even a bright sunny Sunday could put life into the Kitsap BlueJackets who lost to the Kelowna Falcons in Silverdale.

The Falcons had a four-run sixth inning to pull away from the BlueJackets for a 6-1 win in a West Coast League game at Gene Lobe Field at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.

The game last Sunday saw Kelowna score four runs on five hits and a walk, off Kitsap pitcher Ryan Taylor.

Kelowna outfielder Robby Witt had an RBI double. He played for Kitsap two seasons ago.

Kitsap scored their only run in the bottom of the first inning. Connor Jones, a junior from Villanova University, hit into a fielder’s choice and Danny Sheehan, a freshman at San Diego State University, scored from third base to tie the game at 1-1.

Pitching five innings to win the game for Kelowna was Caleb Olson. He allowed one run on three hits.

Taylor marked up the loss with five and one-third innings, allowing six runs on six hits.

Kitsap played games Wednesday and Thursday against the expansion team, the Victoria HarbourCats. This was the Cats first-ever visit to Kitsap’s Gene Lobe Field. The third game against the HarbourCats continue at 6:35 p.m. Friday.

On Saturday and Sunday, the BlueJackets meet the Klamath Falls Gems at the fairgrounds field. That three game series finishes up on Monday at 6:35 p.m. Sunday’s game at 1:05 p.m. is free admission for all children 12 and younger when accompanied by an adult.

As of mid July, the BlueJackets had a 12 win and 24 loss record with a .333 percent win/loss.

Stats for last Sunday’s Game:

Kelowna 6, Kitsap 1

Kelowna 100 014 000 - 6 8 1

Kitsap 100 000 000 - 1 8 1
