HELENA — Conference play has once again rolled around for the Helena Senators. Riding a six-game win streak and winners of 12 of their last 14, the Senators split a doubleheader on the road against the Bozeman Bucks on Wednesday.
After getting run-ruled 11-1 in just five innings, Helena bounced back behind a strong effort from Cy Miller on the mound to take the back-end 4-2.
Miller, making just his second start since rejoining the Senators following a season with Miles City Community College, twirled a six-inning gem on 107 pitches. Pouring in 57 percent for strikes, Miller yielded just three hits to the Bucks while striking out 10 against four walks.
