Falcons Brandon Marris Player of the WeekPosted in Featured, Sports
The Kelowna Falcons and the West Coast League (WCL) are proud to announce Brandon Marris has been named the WCL Player of the Week.
The right hander tossed a complete game shutout versus Cowlitz on Friday at Elks Stadium. Marris gave up only four hits while walking one and striking out six as the Falcons topped the Black Bears 4-0.
Marris, the Falcons Most Outstanding Pitcher in 2011, was 11-4 with a 2.51 ERA at Southeastern Oklahoma State in the spring and would earn first-team All-Great American Conference honours. The righty from The Colony, Texas struck out 90 over 89 2/3 innings pitched.
Last season for the Falcons Marris set new club records for strikeouts (71) and innings pitched (81.1).
Marris is 2-0 and has yet to allow a run this summer over 16.1 innings pitched.
He is the potential starter on Wednesday night at Elks Stadium when the Falcons host the Walla Walla Sweets.
The Falcons begin a seven game home stand on Tuesday night, the first four against Walla Walla, before a three game weekend set against the Bend Elks.
