FRENCHTOWN — A six-run fourth inning spelled doom for Butte Central in the opener of the Frenchtown tournament this afternoon.
Lewistown’s rally gave the Eagles the lead for good, and the Eagles topped the Maroons 9-6 in a non-conference game.
The Eagles could only muster four hits in the victory, but Jaden Martin homered, Eliazar Southland tripled, and Shelby Sannar doubled to highlight the victory.
Hattie Mehring, Jaeden Berger, Brooke Badovinac and Mia Keely each pounded a pair of hits to lead the Maroons. Badovinac hit a triple and a double, while Mehring, Berger and Keeley doubled.
Badovinac and Keeley each drove in two runs. Berger and Brenna Foley each knocked in one. Mehring, Foley and Maggie Stimatz also drew walks for BC.
The Maroons will take on Frenchtown in a Southwestern A game at 7:30 p.m.
