One 7-6 victory wasn't good enough, so the Salt Lake Trappers added another 7-6 win in the second game to sweep a doubleheader with Idaho Falls Sunday night.
The first game took two extra innings when the Trappers blew a 5-4 lead with two out in the bottom of the seventh as the Gems tied it up on a solo homer by Mike Warner.In the top of the ninth, the Traps scored twice on Billy Vosik's two-run single. In the bottom of the inning, John Gilligan pitched out of a bases-loaded jam after the Gems cut the lead to 7-6 on Warner's double.
Salt Lake jumped out in front in the second game with five runs in the first inning on just three hits. But the Gems chipped away at the lead, scoring three runs in the second and another in the third and two more in the fifth.
The Trappers, who scored single runs in the third and fifth, held on behind the pitching of Jon Harden, who got the win and Todd DeVaughn, who picked up the save. Tim Clark went three-for-four to lead the Trappers hiiting in the second game.
The pair of victories raised the Trappers' season record to 8-2, while Idaho Falls remains in last place in the Southern Division with a 3-9 mark. The two teams play again Monday at 7 p.m.
