MISSOULA, Mont. (June 20, 2014) - The Great Falls Voyagers used a pair of homers to earn a two-game sweep of their series with the Missoula Osprey Friday night, coming away with a 5-3 victory at Ogren Park Allegiance Field.

Leading 3-0 heading into the sixth, the Voyagers (3-2) seemed to be cruising when all of the sudden the Osprey (2-3) woke up. Jake Mayers tripled in their first run of the night, and then was followed by Trevor Mitsui who hit a two-run homer.

Great Falls answered right back with two in the seventh to regain the lead. Chevy Clarke started things off with his first homer of the year, a solo shot to the opposite field. The Voyagers then increased their lead to 5-3 later in the frame, when Zach Fish plated Toby Thomas with a sacrifice fly.

From there, it was the Brad Salgado show. The righty came on in the seventh and fired three scoreless frames to earn his first career save, striking out a career-high seven in the process.

For the third game running, it was the Voyagers who broke the scoreless deadlock early on. With two down in the second, Patrick Palmeiro gave Great Falls an emphatic first hit, launching a solo homer to left, his second of the young season.

Great Falls tacked onto their lead in the fourth. Palmeiro was at it again for the Voyagers, collecting an RBI single. Jackson Laumann followed two batters later with an RBI single of his own to make it 3-0.

Great Falls starter Brandon Brennan pitched well in his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last July, giving the Voyagers four scoreless frames. After Brennan, righty Mike Blanke gave Great Falls a scoreless inning of his own, striking out two in his debut as a pitcher.

The win clinches a winning road trip for the club, and sends them home having back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

The Voyagers now head home for their 2014 home opener tomorrow night at Centene Stadium. The Billings Mustangs will be in town to begin a four-game series. Great Falls will send southpaw Jeff McKenzie (0-0, 3.18) to the mound while Billings will turn to righty, Tyler Mahle (0-0, 5.40). First pitch is set for 7:00 p.m. and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
