HELENA — Without two strong outings from Senators starting pitchers Tuesday night at Kindrick Legion Field, Helena would have been in for a long week. After a pair of conference doubleheaders against the Kalispell Lakers, the Sens travel to Bozeman for a tournament this weekend.
But Ethan Keintz and Hunter Lindgren delivered just what the doctor ordered, and the Senators (3-3, 13-7) swept the Lakers, 5-2 and 7-1.
In the first game, Keintz pitched a complete game, allowed one earned run, struck out three, walked three and scattered five hits.
Not to be outdone, Lindgren took a perfect game into the sixth inning during the second game. He finished with six innings of one-run ball and on two hits and struck out six. He walked just one batter.
