GREAT FALLS, Mont. (June 27, 2014) -The Great Falls Voyagers saw their four-game winning streak come to an end Friday night, dropping the opener of a four-game set 4-3 to the Missoula Osprey at Centene Stadium.

The Voyagers (8-4) tallied three early runs in the contest, but the lead did not last as the Osprey (5-7) went to work in the middle innings. Tyler Clark took Great Falls starter Chris Freudenberg deep for the first run of the night for Missoula in the fifth, cutting the lead to 3-1.

Missoula then turned the game around with three runs in the sixth against reliever Anthony Santiago (0-1). After a lead-off single by Trevor Mitsui, Matt Railey launched his second homer of the campaign, a two-run shot, to tie the game.

Later in the frame, Dane McFarland singled, stole a base and then scored on an RBI single for Clark who went 3-4 in his Osprey debut.

Once Missoula had the lead, they showed no signs of relinquishing it as they held Great Falls without a hit over the final six innings. The Voyagers managed just three baserunners after a Mason Robbins single in the third, with two walks and one hit batter in innings four through nine.

The homer by Clark was the only run allowed by Freudenberg as the lefty lasted five innings, setting a new season-high with six strikeouts in a no decision.

The Voyagers and Osprey continue this four-game series Saturday night at Centene Stadium. Great Falls will send righty Matt Ball (0-0, 4.50) to the hill while the Osprey will turn to a righty of their own, Carlos Hernandez (1-0, 0.00). First pitch is set for 7:00 and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
