The Bend Elks bounced back in to league play in the Westcoast Collegiate summer League on the road last night in Kelowna in British Columbia after the All-Star break, and the game was suspended in the top of the 8th inning because of a sprinkler malfunction.
The Elks are behind 8-3 with one out in the top half of the eighth. Just before the malfunction, Sean Coffey singled to load the bases with Chris Diehl coming up to bat. Kelowna did most of its damage in the second inning when the put up a four spot on Bend’s R.J. Robles.
Bend plays two more games in B-C tonight and tomorrow, then return across the border to play at Bellingham on Saturday before landing back home Tuesday night.
