HELENA - For the second time this season, the Helena Senators managed a split with Bozeman, the defending Legion Class AA state champions at Kindrick Legion Field.
Helena played host to Bozeman for a double dip Friday and after dropping the first game 4-2, the Senators broke out offensively in the second to win going away, 8-1, clinching the No. 2 seed at the AA state tournament.
Helena (33-15, 15-9) fell behind 1-0 early in game two, but Cy Miller tied things up with home run in the bottom of the third. Matt Krieger and Tyler Tenney also drove in runs, helping the Senators build a 4-1 advantage.
Thanks a two-run single by Chase Nielsen, Helena added three more runs in the fourth and tacked on another run when Caden Sell doubled to make it 8-1.
