Voyagers Press Release: Great Falls, Helena suspended on Monday

Posted: Updated:

The Great Falls Voyagers and Helena Brewers had their game suspended Monday at Kindrick Legion Field, with Great Falls leading 3-0 in the bottom of the first. Rain had been falling since the top of the first, and with two runners on and two outs, the heavy rain made the field unplayable, forcing a delay and the eventual suspension of Monday's game.

With Monday's game the final scheduled meeting between the two clubs in the first half, the game will not be made up until some time in the second half, likely when the Voyagers return to Helena in August.

The Voyagers got off to a good start, scoring three runs in the first. Antonio Rodriguez tripled in the first run of the night, then scored on a Helena error one batter later. Great Falls later loaded the bases against Helena starter Marcos Diplan, but not without controversy.

With a 3-2 count on Ryan Jones, Louis Silverio took off from first and would have been thrown out, but the pitch was called ball four, entitling Silverio to the base. Helena manager Tony Diggs argued because the base umpire called Silverio out, the umpires discussed the play, then went inside to consult the rule book, and after a lengthy delay, the umpires returned and upheld the call of Silverio being awarded second. Once the game resumed, Great Falls added a third run on a sacrifice fly from Johan Cruz to make it 3-0.

The Brewers put two runners aboard in the bottom of the first inning against Voyager starter Brannon Easterling, before the umpires delayed the game due to weather with two outs in the frame.

The Voyagers return home Tuesday night to begin a two-game series against the Missoula Osprey at Centene Stadium. Right-hander Evin Einhardt (0-0, 4.66) will take the mound for Great Falls, while Missoula will turn to fellow righty Scott Schultz (0-1, 9.53). First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., and coverage will begin at 6:45 on 1400 AM KXGF and gfvoyagers.com.
