The Salt Lake Trappers have one more game in Great Falls tonight before returning to Derks Field. But even when they come home, they still have to play the Dodgers, and they're not having much success with them at the moment.
The Dodgers took a 7-1 victory Wednesday, following a series-opening 20-1 rout that showed Great Falls has intentions of dominating this seven-game series - and, possibly, the Pioneer League playoffs, if the two teams go on to win their divisions.Great Falls leads the Northern Division with a 36-14 record, eight games better than Helena. The Trappers are 33-18, and their lead in the Southern Division was reduced to one game as Butte defeated Helena 5-4.
Great Falls scored single runs in each of the first three innings against Trapper pitcher Myron Gardner. League-leading hitter Kelly Zane singled to drive in Pat Waid with the Trappers' only run in the fourth inning, but Great Falls pitchers Sean Snedeker and Cam Biberdorf held them scoreless the rest of the way and the Dodgers added four runs in the seventh. Both Salt Lake runs in the two games were unearned.
