GREAT FALLS, Mont. (August 4, 2014) - Jake Peter tied his career-high with four runs batted in as the Great Falls Voyagers took the opener of their four-game series with the Orem Owlz Monday night at Centene Stadium.

Peter's big night started in his very first at-bat of the game, as the former Creighton Bluejay took Orem starter Austin Robichaux (1-2) deep for an opposite field homer, to give the Voyagers (4-5, 27-20) an early 1-0 lead.

Great Falls then tacked on four runs in the third to further boost their advantage. Two errors and a single loaded the bases for Peter, who tripled down the right field line to empty the bases, and tie his career-high with four RBIs on the night. With two down, Patrick Palmeiro singled to bring Peter home and push the lead to five.

Five runs proved to be plenty for Voyager starter Luis Martinez (1-0) who gave up a run on three hits with six strikeouts in five innings of work in his Great Falls debut to earn the win.

The lone run the Owlz (4-4, 28-18) scored against the right-hander came in the fourth, when Fran Whitten hit a solo home run.

Orem threatened a few other times, leaving two runners on base in the second, fifth, and seventh frames, but Martinez and reliever Grant Monroe were able to wriggle out of all those jams unscathed.

After Monroe posted scoreless six and seventh innings, Connor Walsh came on and retired all six he faced, including three strikeouts, to lock down the Voyager victory.

The Voyagers and Owlz continue this four-game series Tuesday night at Centene Stadium. On the hill for Great Falls will be righty Matt Ball (2-3, 6.75), while Orem will turn to fellow right-hander Michael Bolaski (4-2, 4.07). First pitch is set for 7:00 and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
