IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - The struggling Idaho Falls Chukars couldn't get off the schneid to start the second half of the Pioneer League season Tuesday, as they fell to the Grand Junction Jackalopes in a 20-13 slugfest.
Idaho Falls' eighth straight defeat was a case of the Chukars not being able to overcome a big early deficit. Grand Junction used a pair of crooked numbers to take an 11-0 lead after three innings.
The Chuks got their bats going not long after, but the 11-run deficit was too much to handle in the 20-13 defeat.
Next up, game two of the six-game set is Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m.
