Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (July 12, 2014) -The Great Falls Voyagers jumped out to an early lead, and won their third straight game Saturday night, as they took care of the Idaho Falls Chukars 7-3 at Centene Stadium.

After a scoreless first inning on both sides, Great Falls (16-10) pushed across four in the second against Idaho Falls starter Zach Lovvorn (2-2). With two outs and the bases loaded, Chevy Clarke drew a walk to collect his team-leading 15th RBI of the season. One batter later, Toby Thomas unloaded the bases with a double to make it 4-0.

In the fifth, the Voyagers tacked on another. Zach Fish doubled Zach Stoner home to push the edge to five.

Great Falls pitching had another strong evening, keeping the Chukars (14-12) off the board until the seventh. Zach Thompson allowed just one hit in four scoreless frames before turning things over to Brian Clark (2-0) who allowed three unearned runs in the seventh after two Great Falls errors.

The Voyagers had an answer in their half of the seventh, using the long ball to push their lead to four. First it was Stoner launching his first of the year, and two batters later it was Ryan Jones unloading on one for his first career homer.

From there the Voyagers turned to righty Grant Monroe who pitched perfect eighth and ninth innings with four strikeouts to end the Chukars five-game winning streak.

Great Falls has now won three straight at Centene Stadium for the first time this season, and can tie their longest winning streak of the year with another win on Sunday.

The Voyagers and Chukars continue this three-game series Sunday afternoon at Centene Stadium. Great Falls will send southpaw Chris Freudenberg (2-2 1.35) to the mound, while Idaho Falls will turn to right-hander, Bryan Brickhouse (0-2, 9.00). First pitch is set for 1:00 and coverage will begin at 12:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.

Also, the Helena Brewers lose 13-1 against the Grand Junction Rockies.
