GRAND JUNCTION, Co (KREX) — For the first time this season the Grand Junction Jackalopes have a winning streak. And also for the first time this season, the ‘Lopes have won a series. 

It was a much quieter start than Wednesday night’s 10-7 barn-burner of a win, but the ‘Lopes’ bats got cracking in inning 4 and didn’t look back.

First-year Jackalope pitcher Frank Racioppo pitched 5 innings and totaled six strikeouts, giving up only two runs. The Lopes bullpen finished it off and improved Grand Junction to 6-9. 

Next up for the Lopes is a six-game home series with the Northern Colorado Owlz.
