IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -- Enough was enough.
Or in this case, eight was enough.
Ogden Raptors designated hitter Justin Chigbogu hit two home runs in a 14-5 rout of the Idaho Falls Chukars Tuesday night in Pioneer League play at Melaleuca Field.
The Raptors put eight runs on their scoreboard in their first at-bat, then let Chigbogu add to his highlight reel.
Chigbogu hit his first homer in the second inning. With one out, Kyle Farmer hit a double down the right-field line. Chigbogu followed with an opposite-field homer to left, his fifth of the season, to put the Raptors up 10-0.
In the sixth inning, Chigbogu hit his second bomb. With the Raptors ahead 10-3, with one out, Pat Stover singled to right. Jesus Valdez then doubled him home into the right-field corner. Two batters later, Chigbogu went the other way again, giving him six on the season.
The Raptors jumped out to a big lead with eight runs in the first inning. With one out, Adam Law, Stover and Valdez drew consecutive walks. Farmer then doubled down the left-field line, scoring two. Chigbogu then singled to left field. The hit was misplayed by Dominique Taylor, allowing Valdez and Farmer to score. After Jacob Scavuzzo walked, Joey Curletta hit an RBI single to right to plate Chigbogu.
Dillon Moyer then hit a grounder to third base. Lewis Urena threw errantly to second base, which let Scavuzzo to score and put runners on the corners. After Moyer was caught stealing, Jesmuel Valentin walked. Law then tripled to center, bringing home Valentin and Curletta.
The eight runs was the most by the Raptors in an inning this season.
The Raptors also got another great outing from reigning P.L. pitcher of the week Zachary Bird. The right-hander earned his second win, going six innings and allowing just three runs on five hits with seven strikeouts.
The Raptors will try to split the four-game series tonight.
