Ryan Stephens of the Grand Junction Rockies finds himself tangled up with Chukars second baseman Jeckson Flores after Stephens was tagged out at second on a steal attempt in the bottom of the sixth inning of Sunday’s game at Suplizio Field.

Sunday smackdown

GJ gives up club-record 25 runs, 28 hits to Chukars

The Grand Junction Rockies trailed Idaho Falls 3-0 after the top of the first inning Sunday, and it spiraled out of control from there. The Chukars approached a long-standing Pioneer League record in a 25-2 victory at Suplizio Field.
The Chukars (4-7) finished with 28 hits, four shy of the 32 hits the Great Falls Voyagers piled up against the now-defunct Butte Copper Kings in 1995 to set the league’s single-game record.
The 25 runs and 28 hits allowed are both all-time worsts for the Rockies.
