Lakers ground Miners in doubleheader sweep

The final weekend of the American Legion baseball season didn’t start off so hot for the Butte Miners.

Kalispell scored six runs in the top of the first inning of Game 1, and the Lakers swept the doubleheader Saturday afternoon at Copper Mountain Park. The Lakers won the opener 11-1 before completing the sweep with a 14–5 victory in Game 2.

The Miners, who have been eliminated from competing in next week’s Class AA State tournament in Helena, close the season with a nine-inning home game against the Bozeman Bucks on Sunday. That game starts at 3 p.m. at Copper Mountain Park.

Kalispell Lakers 11, Butte Miners 1 (5 innings)
The Lakers wasted little time putting their lead out of reach. After their six-run first inning, the Lakers scored five runs in the third inning.

Lead-off hitter Walker Malmin went 3 for 3 with three RBIs and two runs scored to set the table in the win. Patrick O’Connell doubled, while Brandon Massen and Jayson Combs each hit two singles.

Robert Reaser and Malmin combined to hold the Miners to four hits.

Trey Hoagland walked and scored on a Ryan Moodry sacrifice fly for Butte’s lone run in the bottom of the fifth.

Moodry doubled, while Dylan McDonald, Marcus Madrazo and Dyllan “Kruk” Lane hit singles.
