Offensively for the Reps, Matt Krieger (double) and Ty McGurran led the team with a pair of hits each as Helena capitalized on four Muckers errors.
In game two, the bats came alive for Helena as the Reps pounded out 12 hits. Caeden Suero (triple, 3 hits, 2 RBI), McGurran (triple, 3 RBI, 3 runs), Krieger (3 runs), and Seth Barrett each produced a multi-hit game, and again the Reps were aided by seven Butte errors.
