Bandits take two from Miners in Belgrade
Butte Miners

BELGRADE — The Belgrade Bandits swept a Southern A American Legion doubleheader with the Butte Miners Saturday afternoon.

The Bandits won the opener 7-1 before completing the sweep with a 3-1 win before the rain set in.

The Miners, who fell to 1-3 in conference and 1-7 overall, are scheduled to host the Bitterroot Red Sox in a 1 p.m. doubleheader Sunday at 3 Legends Stadium. That game, however, is at least in question after heavy rain in Butte Saturday and more in the forecast on Sunday.

Belgrade 7, Butte 1

Coby Richards tripled, and Cooper VanLuchene went the distance, holding the Miners to four hits in the in the opener.

Lane Neill, Kash Fike and Seth Green also singled for the Bandits, who did their damage on just four hits off Butte pitchers Rylan Richards and Wolfgang Doty-Basel.

Ryan Wahl hit a double and single to lead the Miners. Eric Hart ripped a pair of singles.
