GREAT FALLS DROPS RAIN-SHORTENED CONTEST

W: Soid Marquez (1-0)

L: Chris Freudenberg (0-1)

S: Jefry Sierra (1)                                                     

The Great Falls Voyagers struggled offensively and lost a rain-shortened affair 2-1 at Dehler Park Tuesday night in Billings. Rain had been falling on and off throughout the game, and the weather finally claimed tonight's game after eight innings.

The Mustangs (1-1) wasted little time in scoring the contest's first run, grabbing the lead in the bottom of the first. With two down and a runner in scoring position, Aristides Aquino drove in a run with a single, picking up his third RBI of the young season.

Billings then scored what ended up being the decisive run in the third, when Ty Washington took Voyagers starter Chris Freudenberg (0-1) deep for his first home run of the campaign.

The Voyagers (1-1) tallied their lone run of the night in the fifth against Mustangs starter Jeremy Kivel. Jackson Laumann was hit by a pitch to start off the inning, and eventually came around to score after Kivel uncorked a wild pitch.

That was all the Voyagers could scratch across on the night as the Mustang bullpen shut down Great Falls from there. Soid Marquez (1-0) relieved Kivel and gave up just one hit over two and two-thirds frames to earn the win in relief.

Jefry Sierra then came on for the eighth and finished Great Falls off before the rains came to earn the save.

After surrendering the Washington homer, Freudenberg rebounded to last six innings, earning a quality start in the losing effort.

The Voyagers and Mustangs wrap up this three-game series Wednesday night at Dehler Park. Righty Matt Ball (first start) will be on the mound for Great Falls, while Billings will counter with fellow righty Franderlyn Romero (first start). First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and coverage will begin at 6:50 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.

The Voyagers' home opener is Saturday, June 21 at 7:00 p.m. against the Billings Mustangs at Centene Stadium. For tickets to any 2014 Voyagers home game, call (406) 452-5311 or visit gfvoyagers.com.

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
