HELENA — The Senators took care of business Tuesday in non-conference action at Kindrick Legion Field. They swept a double-header with the Bitterroot Bucs, 6-0 and 13-2.
"We had a week off since our last game so it was good to get back out there," said Helena coach Jon Burnett. "You could see with our pitchers; we were just going two innings at a time and keeping them on a pitch count. I thought they did a great job attacking the zone.
The games were originally scheduled for Monday, but rain pushed them back a day.
The only blemish in the box score for Helena, in both games, was in the error column. Other than adding to the pitch total, the hiccups weren't costly.
"In the field, other than a few miscues, I thought we put together a couple really good games," Burnett said. "Defensively, I think we're pretty solid. We just tend to have that let-down-type-thing. That causes our pitchers to throw a couple extra 10-15 pitches an inning. We'd like to get that defense tightened up just a little bit, but our pitchers are throwing strikes. Hitters are aggressive in the box and we like where things are at right now."
