Reps cruise past Chargers in season opener

Coach Jon Burnett‘s Helena Reps opened the 2017 season right where they left off: With a massive offensive outburst.

Helena pounded out 14 hits in an 8-inning 14-4 win as they cruised in their opening game on the road over the Great Falls Chargers A squad.

Ty McGurran (4-6, double, 3 RBI), Grady Koenig (3-3, double), and Matt Krieger (double), Keanan Horne (double) and Conor McCarvel (3 RBI) each collected a pair of hits to lead the offensive attack.

Riley Chisholm and Walter Evans were dominant on the mound, each allowing two hits over three innings and striking out three. Ryan Barrett tied up the final two innings for Helena. Chisholm took home the win.

The Reps move to 1-0 on the young season. They next travel to Missoula to take on the Mavs in a Sunday doubleheader starting at 1:00 p.m.
