COLORADO SPRINGS — After a rainout Monday night, the Rocky Mountain Vibes played host to the Orem Owlz Tuesday night for the first doubleheader (two 7-inning games) in team history.

The Vibes won Game One 7-6, coming from behind to score four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the game, and then walking the game off in the bottom of the seventh to take game one of both the series and the twin bill.

In Game Two, the Vibes fell behind 3-0, took a 4-3 lead on the Vibes' first-ever grand slam, fell into a 4-4 tie, and then scored two late runs in the sixth to win Game Two 6-4 and complete the doubleheader sweep over Orem.

The Vibes continue their seven-game homestand with the third and final game of a three-game set against the Orem Owlz. The Owlz are slated to start righty Matt Leon (3-2, 3.86) against Vibes right-hander Nash Walters (1-1, 3.73). The game will be available on MiLB.TV as well as the MiLB TuneIn app.
