The Helena Reps coasted past the Butte Muckers in the first game of a Class A Southern District conference doubleheader 10-0. The second game was rained out – the reschedule date is to be determined.
Carter Wald was 3-3 with 3 RBI, including a walk-off, two run double to end the game by the ten-run rule. Andrew Rosston added a couple of hits (including a two run double), as did catcher Keanan Horne.
Brett Jacobs was stellar on the mound, allowing only one infield hit and striking out three, and picking up his fifth win of the season. Conor McCarvel pitched a scoreless final inning.
Coach Jon Burnett‘s Reps now stand at 9-1 in conference and 26-7 overall. They next travel to Bozeman to take on the Spikes on Friday at 7:00 PM.
