OREM, Utah -- Road-weary may be an understatement. The Grand Junction Rockies finished off an eight-game road trip with a lopsided 18-4 loss Thursday at the hands of the Orem Owlz.
The GJ Rockies head back to Suplizio Field with a chance to catch the Owlz in the Pioneer League South Division standings. After Thursday's loss, the Rockies sit 4 games behind the Owlz for first place in the division. The GJ Rockies, however, now host the Owlz for four games at home, starting Friday, July 4th, with fireworks following the game.
The Rockies fell to five-hundred over the course of the road trip, going 2-6, giving up over 8 runs per game, and getting outscored 67-38 in the eight game stretch.
Friday's fireworks game time has been moved up to 6:30 p.m. Tickets are still available, and can be purchased at www.gjrockies.com, or you can visit most City Market locations. Tickets can also be bought at the gates before the game.
