The Ogden Raptors continued racking up hits Tuesday but couldn’t make many of them clutch in a 14-5 loss to the Great Falls Voyagers at Lindquist Field.
The Raptors (39-23, 13-11) totaled 12 hits but were 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position.
Three of the team’s five runs came on solo home runs.
Great Falls centerfielder Romy Gonzalez was a one-man highlight show. He hit a grand slam in the fourth inning and a three-run shot in the ninth, totaling eight RBIs.
He also hit a double, totaling 11 bases in a four-hit game. His team was 7 for 16 with runners in scoring position.
Marcus Chiu homered in the fourth inning, James Outman hit a shot in the sixth and Ronny Brito left the yard in the ninth inning for Ogden.
Brito’s homer gives him 10 for the season, pulling him into a three-way tie for second place on the Pioneer League’s home-run leaders list.
Missoula’s Zack Shannon is in first with 12.
The three homers increase Ogden’s team total to 73, which leads the league.
Outman’s homer came on the same day he was named league player of the week for Aug. 13-19 for hitting 9 for 18 with two doubles, a triple and four stolen bases.
Caleb Sampen took the loss, giving up only two runs and one earned but leaving the game with the Raptors trailing 2-1.
Great Falls (29-32, 7-16) never relinquished the lead from there.
The two teams play game three of the four-game series at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
