Reps blast Anaconda

The Helena Reps swept the Anaconda A’s at Kindred Legion Field in a pair of Class A Southern District Conference games on Saturday, running away with 16-1 and 12-2 victories.

Each game was shortened to five innings due to the ten run rule. On the mound in game one, Taylor Carlson dominated, going 4 innings of scoreless work, striking out 4. In game 2, Caleb Shamley went three innings and got the win. Conor McCarvel pitched 1 and 2 scoreless innings to clean up the end of each game.

Offensively over the two games for the Reps, Talon Burchard was 5 for 6 on the day with 5 RBI, Andrew Rosston was 3 for 5 with a pair of doubles and 5 RBI, Riley Chisholm had a couple of hits with 5 RBI, and several other Reps contributed to the offensive outburst. On the day, the Reps drew 19 walks and 5 hit by pitches, as Anaconda pitching struggled on the mound.

Jon Burnett’s Reps move to 6-1 in conference play and 20-5 overall. They travel to Anaconda on Monday for another conference doubleheader against the A’s. Start time is 5:00 PM.
