(OGDEN, UT) — The game started with dueling two-run home runs by both teams in the first, but the Idaho Falls Chukars couldn’t keep pace with the Raptors as Ogden pulls away for a 10-5 win Wednesday. Ryan O’Hearn crushed a home run in the first inning to get the Chukars (7-10) on the board 2-0. Ogden wasted no time answering the blast. Justin Chigbogu hit his own two run home run in the bottom half of the frame.
The Raptors (6-11) kept the pressure on by scoring four runs scored on three hits in the second inning. Idaho Falls never mounted another big threat until the game was out of reach in the ninth.
Idaho Falls continues the seven game series against Ogden Thursday. The scene shifts to Melaleuca Field for the next four games.
