Osprey Beat Brewers on Road, 12-2July 9, 2012 - Pioneer League (PL) Missoula Osprey
Bianco, who finished with three hits and three runs scored, became the 26th player to have a multi-home run game in Osprey history. The right fielder hit a solo shot in the third and a three-run blast in the top of the fourth to give Missoula a 4-2 lead. The Osprey (12-10) then proceeded to score two runs in each of the fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth innings to cruise to the victory.
Chris Pack (2-1) pitched five strong innings to get the win on the mound, combining with Dexter Price, Vince Spilker and Chase Stevens on a five-hitter.
Pedro Ruiz had four of Missoula's 15 hits in the contest, and drove in a pair of runs, while Ty Linton and Evan Marzilli added two hits each.
The Osprey will return home on Wednesday to open a seven-game homestand against South Division rivals Grand Junction and Orem. The Osprey have yet to announce their starter for Wednesday's opener against the Rockies, while Grand Junction will have right-hander Johendi Jiminian making the start.
