GREAT FALLS, Mont. (July 23, 2014) - The Great Falls Voyagers had their game shortened by rain Wednesday night, knocking off the Helena Brewers 7-4 in a game that was called after seven innings at Centene Stadium.

The Brewers (13-23) scored two unearned runs in the first to take an early lead, but the Voyagers (22-14) had an answer right away. In the bottom of the first, Chevy Clarke led off with a solo homer off J.B. Kole (0-2) to get his club within one, then tied the game with a single in the next frame.

Great Falls then took their first lead of the night in the third. Zach Fisher continued his hot run at the plate, launching a two-run homer to right for his fourth of the year.

Helena pulled a run back in the third against Voyager starter Zach Thompson but that was as close as the Brewers got. Thompson worked a career-high five innings, lasting long enough to earn his first career win.

The Voyagers pushed their lead to three in the fourth. Fisher collected his third RBI of the night and 31st of the season with a single and Patrick Palmeiro then followed with a sacrifice fly.

Helena got a run closer in the sixth, tallying one against reliever Alex Powers, who worked the final two innings of the game to earn his first save.

The contest's final run came in the bottom of the sixth as Mason Robbins collected his fourth hit of the night, a solo homer to the opposite field to push the advantage back to three.

After the final out was made in the bottom of the seventh, rain started to come pouring down at Centene Stadium, washing out the contest's final two innings, and handing the Voyagers their fourth straight win, tying their longest winning streak of the season.

The Voyagers and Brewers wrap-up this quick two-game series Thursday night at Centene Stadium. Great Falls will turn to left-hander Chris Freudenberg (2-3 3.13), while the Brewers will hand the ball to righty Javi Salas (0-2, 5.40). First pitch is set for 7:00 and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
