GREAT FALLS — Johny Celis hammered a home run and knocked in three runs to help the Great Falls Voyagers squeeze past the Orem Owlz 4-3 in Thursday night's opening game of the Pioneer League championship series.

Orem pitcher Jayson Miller pitched seven strong innings with six strikeouts along the way, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Owlz from dropping the series-opener.

The best-of-three series continues in Orem tonight at 7:05 at Brent Brown Ballpark. Game 3, if necessary, will be played Saturday at 7:05 p.m. in Orem.
