GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Grand Junction Rockies have struggled on the road and at home. On Wednesday they started a fresh homestand looking to turn the second half around, and they did just that.

The Missoula Osprey took the field for a three-game set opposite the struggling Rockies. They were first on the board, but the Rox weren't too far behind.

In the bottom of the third, Correlle Prime chopped one to third and an overthrow to first allowed Raimel Tapia to round third and tie the game at two a piece.

Missoula answered with two runs in the fourth and that'd be the last anyone would hear from their offense. Scott Firth relieved Devin Burke in the fifth, retiring the first seven batters he faced. He went 2.1 innings
with two strikeouts.

The rest of the bullpen did their part, allowing just three more hits through the remainder of the game.

Grand Junction goes on to break their 5-game losing skid with an 8-4 win to open the set.
