GREAT FALLS — Luis Curbelo lined a two-out, bases-loaded single into left field in the bottom of the 10th inning to lift the Great Falls Voyagers to a 7-6 win over the Missoula Osprey in a Pioneer League baseball game Thursday night at Centene Stadium.
The loss dropped the Osprey to 12-10 in the Northern Division, 3.5 games behind first-place Billings, which was rained out Thursday night. Great Falls improved to 10-11.
The teams play a doubleheader Friday beginning at 5 p.m. It's a make-up game of one of the contests canceled last week in Missoula. The Osprey will be the home team for that game.
The Osprey took a 4-0 lead with two outs in the third inning. Axel Andueza's single scored Kevin Watson, who had singled, and Nick Grande, who had walked. Andueza then scored on Great Falls starter Sean Thompson's fourth wild pitch of the game and Spencer Brickhouse doubled in Tristen Carranza, who had walked.

Starting with a runner on second in the 10th inning, the Osprey took a 6-5 lead on a two-out RBI-single by Reyes.
