Independents split doubleheaders


The Helena Independents Class B Legion baseball team split a pair of doubleheaders last week, beating the Gallatin Valley Posse 8-6 on Saturday, before besting Butte 3-0 during Sunday’s second contest on Mother’s Day.

Taylor Carlson and Keaton Ralston each pitched strong and kept the Posse hitters at bay. Against the Muckers, Brett Jacobs pitched a shutout. Gage Vermillion, Conor McCarvel, Nik Jemmings and Adam Geubtner led Helena offensively over the weekend.

The Independents’ (4-3) will next have a home game at 7 p.m. Friday at Kindrick Legion Field.
