 VOYAGERS SHUTOUT, LOSE 4-0 TO IDAHO FALLS

The Great Falls Voyagers managed just four hits, and were shutout for the first time in 2014, losing 4-0 to the Idaho Falls Chukars Sunday afternoon at Centene Stadium.

Idaho Falls (15-12) wasted no time in getting to Voyager starter Chris Freudenberg (2-3). The first three Chukars all collected hits against the southpaw, on the way to a three-run first frame for the visitors.

The Voyagers (16-11) had little in the way of threats on the afternoon, managing just one hit through the contest's first seven innings. Jake Newberry (3-0) was cruising for the Chukars in relief until the eighth when he surrendered three singles to load the bases with one out. He was removed and Sam Lewis came in, and the right-hander struck out the next two to end the threat.

After Idaho Falls tacked on an unearned insurance run in the top of the ninth, Great Falls had another opportunity to make some noise in the bottom of the ninth. For the second straight frame the Voyagers loaded the bases as Lewis hit a batter and walked two. With two outs, left-hander Nick Green came in to the contest, and snuffed out the rally attempt to earn his third save and complete the Chukars second shutout of the year.

Freudenberg settled in after his three-run first, keeping Idaho Falls off the board for his final five innings of work to collect his third consecutive quality start, and fourth in six outings for Great Falls in 2014.

The Voyager offense tied a season-low with their four-hit effort, and was shutout for the first time since July 18 of last year in game two of a doubleheader with Orem. The loss also ends Great Falls home winning streak at a season-high three in a row.

The Voyagers and Chukars conclude this three-game set Monday night at Centene Stadium. Great Falls will send righty Matt Ball (1-1 4.71) to the mound, while Idaho Falls has yet to announce their starter for Monday's contest. First pitch is set for 7:00 and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.

 Also, the Helena Brewers win 7-5 over Grand Junction on the road.
