GREAT FALLS, Mont. (June 23, 2014) - The Great Falls Voyagers picked up their first walk-off win of the season, scoring two with two outs in the ninth to beat the Billings Mustangs 4-3 Monday night at Centene Stadium.

Trailing 3-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth, things were looking dire for Great Falls (5-3) as Wagner Gomez (1-1) retired the first two in the frame. With two down, Jake Peter coaxed his third walk of the contest to get the ball rolling.

John Ziznewski and Zach Fish followed with back-to-back singles, with the latter tying the game. That brought up Zach Fisher  <bwith a chance to win it, and he drove one to left that eluded Mustang left fielder Jimmy Pickens, to give the Voyagers the walk-off victory.

The Voyagers led 2-1 heading into the eighth inning when the Mustangs turned things around. Charlie Sharrer had tossed two scoreless innings already for Great Falls but allowed Billings to go back in front on a two-run homer off the bat of Cory Thompson. Jon Bengard (1-0) came on to finish the eighth, and retired the five he faced to earn the win in relief.

In the second inning, the Mustangs picked up their lone tally against Voyager starter Matt Ball. Kevin Franklin drove in that run, bringing Aristides Aquino around for Franklin's third RBI of the series. Ball settled down after that, allowing just the one run in five innings of work.

The Voyagers tied things up in the home half of the second after a Ty Washington error allowed Mason Robbins to score, and then took the lead in the next half inning when Fisher doubled to straight away center.

The Voyagers conclude this four-game series with the Mustangs at Centene Stadium on Tuesday night. Great Falls will send right-hander Dane Stone (1-0, 0.00) to the hill, while Billings will counter with fellow righty Jeremy Kivel (0-0, 0.00). First pitch is set for 7:00 p.m. and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
