Reps whip Muckers

The Helena Reps swept the season conference series from the Butte Saturday, whipping the Muckers 18-0 and 17-3 in five-inning shortened Class A Montana Southern District conference games.

In game one, Ryan Barrett picked up the win on the mound by throwing a three-hit complete game shutout. The Reps picked up 14 hits in the game with Zach Spiroff (3 hits, 4 runs, triple), Hunter Sickerson (4 RBI, triple), Ty McGurran (3 RBI), and Kadyn Craigle (2 doubles) all contributing multi-hit games.

Game two was the Nik Jemmings show, as Jemmings was 4-4 with three RBI and three runs scored. He also pitched the final 1.2 innings of no-hit baseball from the mound, striking out two.

Even though he was removed due to the Reps 14-run lead after three innings, Walter Evans picked up the win for the Reps on the mound, giving up a lone run in his shortened outing. Brady Anderson also had a pair of hits and a couple of RBI in the victory.

The sweep moves Coach Jon Burnett‘s club to 39-10 overall and 17-3 in the conference. They will  next host the Bozeman Buck on Tuesday in a pair of conference games at Kindrick Legion Field in Helena.
