Osprey Crank Out 19 Hits
Bobby Stone

Posted Jul 12, 2010


The Missoula Osprey collected a season-high 19 hits, including four by Roberto Rodriguez, as they beat the great Falls Voyagers, 9-5 on Sunday. Bobby Stone had three knocks, and his two RBI set a Missoula record for most RBI in a career.

Roberto Rodriguez also drove in a pair of runs, while Chris Jarrett and Bobby Stone added three hits and two RBI each. Jae Yun Kim also had three hits for Missoula, who snapped a three-game losing streak with the win.

The Osprey broke a scoreless tie with back-to-back RBI doubles by Rodriguez and Adam Eaton in the top of the fifth inning, followed by a Stone infield hit that chased home Eaton, putting the Osprey in front, 3-0.

Great Falls would bounce back and knock Patrick Schuster out of the game with a five-run answer in the home half of the fifth, taking a 5-3 lead in the process.  Justin Albert (1-0) pitched his way out of further trouble, however, and the Voyagers would only managed to get two baserunners for the rest of the game.

The Osprey scored a run in the sixth on a Jarrett RBI infield hit, then two more in the seventh. Stone’s RBI single that tied the game in the top of the seventh was his 102nd RBI in an Osprey uniform, passing Lyle Overbay for the most in an Osprey career. Richie Rowland added a sacrifice fly in the frame, giving the Osprey the lead back at 6-5.

Missoula added three more runs in the top of the eighth to put the game away off of reliever Nelson Curry (0-1). Jarrett doubled home a run, Rodriguez singled home another, and Eric Groff’s sacrifice fly plated the final run.

Albert pitched 4 2/3 innings, allowing just a hit and a walk while striking out four batters to pick up his first win as a professional player.
