BILLINGS — For the second year in a row, the Bozeman Bucks celebrated a State AA American Legion baseball championship with a dogpile in the Dehler Park infield.
Helena Senators - 2020 State Runner-up
In the first game of the day on Sunday, Helena held off a Billings Scarlets' rally and won 5-3 to advance to the championship showdown.
Cy Miller, who combined with Tyler Tenney in a 6-0 no-hitter victory over No. 7 Great Falls in the Senators’ first game of the tourney, pitched the complete six innings. He allowed three hits and struck out four, while walking four.
“Cy Miller’s effort was awesome today,” Burnett said. “I wouldn’t have any other guy on the mound for us in that spot.”
Burnett said Bozeman deserved credit for the win.
“Bozeman is a good solid team,” he said. I’d like to have another crack at them, but that’s how it went. They played well today. Tip your cap to them.”
Helena finishes the year 39-17.
