Senators bounce back with pair of wins

HELENA — The game of baseball teaches its players to have a short memory.

On a windy Sunday at Kindrick Legion Field in Helena, the Senators (6-3) were able to put Saturday's late-game meltdown at Bozeman in the rearview mirror as they defeated the Butte Miners 11-1 during the morning game, and the Bozeman Bucks 6-1 in the afternoon. 

Albeit a AA nonconference game, it was a win over the defending state champs, who scored 13 runs in their final two at-bats Saturday.

"(Bozeman) is a good quality team. I'd say probably tops in the state," said Helena coach Jon Burnett. "We played them tough the last two times. Yesterday we had a letdown in the last couple innings, but we were up by three going into that. So yeah, it was good for our guys to kinda get that monkey off their back."

If you got to the game after the third inning, you missed everything the offenses had to offer.
