(Orem, UT) - Jeremiah Jackson hit a pair of home runs on Sunday afternoon but the Owlz (1-2) couldn't complete a comeback, losing to the Rocky Mountain Vibes (2-1) 13-10 at the Home of the Owlz.

The Owlz plated another run when Anthony Mulrine was hit by a pitch, scoring the fourth run of the inning. With the Owlz trailing 13-10, Morgan McCullough struck out to end the game, leaving the tying run on base.
Jeremiah Jackson started the season 0-for-6 before homering in his first at-bat on Sunday. Jackson wasn't done, smacking a solo shot in the fifth for the first multi-homer game of his career.
