“The Streak” Game 20 – July 16, 1987

Salt Lake 10, Idaho Falls 3

IDAHO FALLS – After a 17-hit assault on Idaho Falls in Wednesday’s rout, the Trappers exploded for 15 more in the record-breaker.  Frank Colston and leadoff man Anthony Blackmon paced the assault with two RBI’s apiece. Colston broke open the contest with a two run double in the third inning to give Salt Lake a 5-0 lead, and Blackmon ripped a two-run homer in the ninth to cap the victory.

The Trappers got five solid innings from starter Yasuhiro Hiyama, and reliever John Groennert worked the last four frames to record the save.

Salt Lake picked up two more runs in the sixth on Jon Leake’s bases-loaded single and a passed ball that scored Blackmon.  The Trappers upped their advantage to 8-2 in the eighth when Neil Reynolds delivered a pinch-hit scoring single.  After a double by Adam Casillas, Blackmon’s two-run shot to left made it 10-3.
