The Chukars' hot streak has come to an end.

With a 5-4 road loss to Grand Junction Wednesday night, Idaho Falls has now lost two straight, on the heels of a five-game winning streak last week.

On Wednesday, three errors cost the Chukars, who got a five-inning, seven-hit, four-run (none earned) outing from starter David Sliva. He added three strikeouts, but Grand Junction's four-run fourth inning made the difference.

The Chukars did scratch across a run in the top of the ninth, but the rally stopped there for Idaho Falls, which also got two hits each from Alex Monge, Matt Feinstein and Daniel Martins-Molinari.

Idaho Falls and Grand Junction will play Game 2 of this six-game series at 6:40 p.m. Thursday.
