Voyagers Offense Quiet in Matinee Loss to Billings

Posted: Updated:

Billings 7, Great Falls 1

W: Tyler Mahle (1-0)

L: Chris Freudenberg (0-2)

S: None

The Great Falls Voyagers fell behind early on, and never got much offense going on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Billings Mustangs 7-1 at Centene Stadium.

After a pair of scoreless innings on either side, Billings (4-2) grabbed the lead in the third. An error by John Ziznewski got things started for the Mustangs, and with two away the visitors put together four consecutive hits against Great Falls starter Chris Freudenberg (0-2). The big hits in the frame went to Garrett Boulware and Kevin Franklin, who each had two-run singles.

The Voyagers (4-3) got one back in the fourth against Mustang starter Tyler Mahle (1-0). Zach Fish led the frame off with a double down the left field line, and later touched home after a sacrifice fly by Jackson Laumann, the designated hitter's fifth RBI of the campaign.

The Mustangs put this one away in the sixth, pushing three across against the Great Falls bullpen. Ty Washington doubled the first run of the frame in, and then Boulware was at it again, plating two more with a double to give him a career-high four runs batted in on the afternoon.

The seven runs were plenty for a Billings pitching staff that held the Voyagers to five hits and have allowed just nine hits in the first two games of this series. They were led today by Mahle who gave up the lone run on four hits on five innings, while whiffing a new career-high eight Voyagers in the process.

The Mustang bullpen was strong as well, allowing just two baserunners while striking out five Voyagers over the game's final four innings.

The Voyagers will try to rebound on Monday night as they continue this four-game series with the Mustangs at Centene Stadium. Great Falls will send right-hander Matt Ball (0-0, 9.00) to the hill, while Billings will counter with fellow righty Jeremy Kivel (0-0, 2.08). First pitch is set for 7:00 p.m. and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.

    Mills Canyon burn out planned for Tuesday

    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.
