Grand Junction’s Max George, 3, eludes the tag attempt of Idaho Falls catcher Kyle Pollock to score Friday night in the second inning of the Rockies’ 7-4 victory over the Chukars at Suplizio Field.

Patience rewarded

GJ Rockies walk eight times in victory over Chukars

The Grand Junction Rockies were patient at the plate Friday night, drawing eight walks as they took a commanding lead into the final inning.
Sam Howard pitched four shutout innings, and although the bullpen buckled in the late innings, Grand Junction held on to win 7-4 in a messy Pioneer League baseball game at Suplizio Field.
The Rockies (27-17, 4-2 second half) took advantage of four errors by Idaho Falls (21-23, 1-5) to back five strikeouts and no walks by Howard.
