The Miners are on a roll.
Butte’s Class A American Legion baseball team jumped out to a 7-0 lead and held on for a 7-3 Southern A victory over the Helena Reps Wednesday at Copper Mountain Park.
The win was the third in conference for the Miners in as many days as Butte improved to 10-5 in league play and 24-18 overall. Overall, the Miners have won six straight dating back to the Keith Sell tournament in Helena.
Wednesday’s game was the second half of a doubleheader that was rained out on June 24. The game had a feel of a pitchers dual into the fourth inning when the Miners finally broke through.
Nate LeProwse singles and Dylan Lanahan doubled to lead off the bottom of the fourth. Then Jared Haran singled in LeProwse to start a five-run inning for the Miners.
Butte made it 7-0 with two more runs in the fifth inning to support the strong pitching of starter Daulton Daum, who struck out five before finally giving up three runs in the sixth.
Colten Billteen closed out the game with an inning and a third work.
Marcus Madrazo joined Lanahan with a double as the Miners tallied eight hits on the night.
LeProwse and Haran each had a two-hit game. Dylan McDonald and Ty Harney each poked a single.
Tyler Simonson doubled for the Reps. Ryan Arntson hit two singles, while Carter Pappas singled in two runs. Ryan Dorvall pitched the distance in the loss.
The Miners continue their run of 12 games in 13 days Friday when they play host to the Deer Lodge Wranglers in a conference doubleheader. Butte hosts first-place Gallatin Valley in a nine-inning game on Saturday.
