MISSOULA, Mont. (July 29, 2014) - For the first time in 2014, the Great Falls Voyagers dropped a road game to the Missoula Osprey, falling 5-4 Tuesday night at Ogren Park Allegiance Field.

With the game tied at four apiece in the seventh inning, first baseman Trevor Mitsui hit an opposite field home run off Voyager reliever David Trexler (1-1) to put the Osprey (1-3, 18-24) back in front.

The Missoula bullpen held the lead over the final two innings, as Jency Solis (2-0) retired Great Falls (2-2, 25-17) in order for the second straight frame before Brody Greer earned his sixth save by turning in a scoreless ninth.

After the Voyagers went down in order in each of the contest's first two innings against Osprey starter Dallas Newton, they got their offense going in the third thanks to the long ball. Zach Fish started the frame by homering for the fourth straight game to break the scoreless deadlock. Later, Chevy Clarke launched a two-run homer for his team-leading eighth of the season.

Missoula answered with a pair in the bottom of the inning as Fernery Ozuna and Stewart Ijames picked up run-producing singles to reduce their deficit to one.

The Osprey then took their first lead of the night by scoring two more in the fourth on an RBI single from Sergio Alcantara, and run-scoring triple from Justin Williams who extended his hitting streak to 24 in a row, the longest in the Pioneer League this season.

Great Falls tied the score in the sixth, as the first three all reached in the frame via a walk and two singles. With the bases loaded, Ethan Gross drove in his ninth run of the year with a sacrifice fly to tie the game at 4-4, but the Voyagers were unable to score any more in the inning, and managed just one base runner the rest of the night.

The loss for Great Falls is their first against the Osprey at Ogren Park Allegiance Field in 2014, and ends the run of nine straight contests won by the visiting team in the season series.

The Voyagers and Osprey continue their four-game series Wednesday night at Ogren Park Allegiance Field. Great Falls will send righty Matt Ball (2-2 5.66) to the hill, while Missoula will counter with fellow right-hander Yefrey Ramirez (1st start). First pitch is set for 7:15 and coverage will begin at 7:00 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
