We’re on the air at 6:50, with relief pitcher Chase Stevens as our guest. First pitch is about 7:05 on AM 930 KMPT and online at MissoulaOsprey.com.

The Skinny:
The Osprey will look to make it three wins in a row as they will take on the Ogden Raptors in Game Two of their Three-Game series at Ogren Park Allegiance Field. The Osprey worked their way to a 10-3 win over the Raptors on Monday night.

Last Time Out:
Karl Triana and a pair of relievers scattered six hits, while every batter in the Missoula Osprey lineup collected at least one base hit as the O’s beat the Ogden Raptors, 10-3, on Monday here at Ogren Park Allegiance Field in front of 2,052 fans. Evan Marzilli had three hits to pace the 17-hit attack for the Osprey. Triana (4-4) allowed four hits and two walks, plus hit a batter in his six innings of work, while surrendering three runs (two earned) and collecting seven strikeouts to pick up the win on the mound. Chris Thomas pitched a scoreless seventh, striking out a pair of batters, while Mike Blake scattered two hits in his two scoreless innings of work, striking out four batters in the process, giving Osprey pitching 13 punch-outs on the night. Socrates Brito and Adam McConnell each had two hits and two RBIs to help the Missoula cause at the plate. McConnell – the lone player with more than one hit in Missoula’s wild win over Billings on Saturday – has five hits in his last nine at-bats. Jake Lamb, Breland Almadova, Tyler Bream and Yosbel Gutierrez each had two hits and a RBI, while Rudy Flores added a hit and a RBI, and Pedro Ruiz had a single and two walks, plus scored a run and stole two bases. Jesus Valdez doubled home a pair of runs, while Eric Smith had two hits to pace the Raptors at the plate.

Nest Notes:
Evan Marzilli is on another hit streak again, this time in home games, where he has hit in nine straight contests at Ogren Park Allegiance Field, the longest such streak by an Osprey player this season … Breland Almadova currently has a 10-game hit streak away from home. He also carded a 10-game overall hit streak which was stopped by Billings on Friday.

On the Mound Tonight:
Missoula will send right-hander Yoimer Camacho to make the start, as he looks to pick up his third straight win on the hill. Camacho (2-3, 3.16) has pitched shutout baseball in two of his last three starts, and has allowed just two runs in his last 16 innings of work. In three home starts, Camacho is 0-1 with a 5.25 ERA, with the damage coming against Orem, when he allowed six runs on six hits in three innings of work. In his other two starts at home (Grand Junction on July 12 and Great Falls on July 29), Camacho has allowed just a run in nine innings of work, with nine strikeouts. Camacho is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA in his two August outings, road wins at Great Falls and Helena, with a .182 batting average against. Camacho was the pitcher of record in the first Osprey shutout against Helena on August 8, which would be followed by another shutout the following night.

The Raptors will go with right-hander Lindsay Caughel, who is making his fourth start of the season tonight for Ogden. Caughel (0-1, 6.32) has been roughed up in his three prior starts, allowing 11 earned runs (14 total) in 14 2/3 innings pitched, a 6.75 ERA. He has, however, pitched more than four innings in each of his three starting assignments. In 10 2/3 innings pitched on the road, Caughel is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA. The 23rd round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers started the summer in the Arizona League, and in seven relief appearances, was 2-2 with a 3.18 ERA.
