Lethbridge tops Miners 9-1 in wee hours

HELENA — Marcus Pearce struck out 10 batters and held the Butte Miners to just two hits in a 9-1 victory late Sunday night.

The game, which went five innings and started at 10:30 p.m., was part of the Keith Sell Invitational Tournament. At 2-2, the Miners (20-19) finished third in their pool. They play the Helena Senators at 1 p.m. Monday.

Wilson Holt doubled and drove in three runs to lead the Elks, who turned a 1-0 deficit into a lead with a five-run first inning. Jack McDonald added a double and two RBIs in the win.

Marcus Madrazo walked and scored on a Dylan Lanahan single to start the game. That was the end of the good news for Butte, though, against Pearce, whom Butte coach Jeff LeProwse called the “pitcher best I’ve seen this year.”

Nate LeProwse added a single for the Miners.
