The Butte Miners left the basses loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning in a 12-10 loss to the Bozeman Bucks Friday night on Miners Field at 3 Legends Stadium.

Robert Samson got strike three called against Kash Kelly with Renzy Doherty on third and Austin Gerry at second and Bryson Henningsen on third.

That came after Doherty hit an RBI single and Gerry and Henningsen walked. Henningsen worked the free pass with the bases loaded.

The backwards ‘K’ ended a wild game, which was scheduled for nine and started nearly an hour late because of lightning.

Butte fell behind 8-2 before rallying to tie the game with six runs in the bottom of the third. Bozeman scored one apiece in the fifth and sixth before making it 12-8 with two in the eighth.

Morgan Hostetler went 4 for 5 with a double and three runs scored to lead the Bucks. Alex Eckstrom and Jake Murfitt also doubled. Eckstrom pitched eight innings to get the win.

Braxton “Ax” Henningsen went 3 for 4 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored, while Doherty went 3 for 5 with a triple and two RBIs to lead the Miners.

Kelly, Quin Summers and Ryan Moodry each hit a double and a single in the loss. Liam Sommer singled.

Justin Summers struck out eight batters in six innings of relief.

The Miners are back in action Thursday when they head to Missoula for a 5 p.m. doubleheader with the Mavericks.
