Great Falls, MT - In game one of their scheduled doubleheader with the Great Falls Voyagers, the Chukars took an early lead, but couldn't prevent a Great Falls offensive onslaught. The Voyagers scored ten runs on twelve hits, as they downed Idaho Falls 10-3. Anderson Comas went 3 for 4 with 5 RBI for Great Falls.

 

The Chukars got the party started in the second inning thanks to a two out rally. Michael Emodi singled with two out and nobody on, and Isaiah Henry followed with an infield single. On the first pitch he saw, Ismaldo Rodriguez ripped a single to left, scoring Emodi to make it 1-0 Chukars.

 

However, the lead was short lived. Lency Delgado started the bottom of the second inning with a double, and with one out Cabera Weaver walked. The outfield was playing shallow for Comas, who doubled over the head of Henry in center, scoring Delgado & moving Weaver to third. Kleyder Sanchez then hit a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Weaver to give Great Falls the lead. Comas moved to third, and scored the very next batter on a passed ball.

 

It remained a 3-1 Voyager lead until the bottom of the fourth, when Great Falls busted the game open with a four run frame. Jakob Goldfarb started the inning with a walk, followed by a Weaver seeing eye single into left. That brought up Comas again, who poked a ball just inside the first base foul line, going into the corner and scoring both runners, making it 5-1 Voyagers. Comas ended up with a triple, and scored on another Sanchez sacrifice fly. Cameron Simmons singled, ending the day for Cole Watts, but after Josh Rivera single, a wild pitch plated Simmons, making it 7-1 Voyagers.

 

Idaho Falls got a pair of runs back in the sixth inning on a two out Emodi single, but Great Falls punched back with three more in the bottom of the frame, all of them being unearned. With the 10-3 loss, the Chukars losing streak extended to five games.
