Miners fall just short in morning game

HELENA — The Butte Miners left the tying run stranded on third base this morning, falling 3-2 to the Strathmore (Alberta) Reds during the 19th Annual Keith Sell Invitational Tournament at Kindrick Legion Field.

The Miners (18-18) scored two runs in the top of the seventh inning of the game that started at 7:30 a.m.

Quentin Kopjar scatted six hits in six and a third innings to lead the Reds to the win. He struck out four and walked one. Aaron McCarthy doubled and Jared Kennedy hit two singles to lead the Strathmore offense, which took advantage of 11 Miner walks.

Trey Hoagland poked a pair of singles for the Miners. Dylan Lanahan, Jared Haran, Ty Harney and Jimmy Martz each added a single. Tanner Costello hit a sacrifice fly.

The Miners continue the tournament tonight at 10:30 — yes, 10:30 p.m. — against the Lethbridge Elks.

Butte plays Bozeman at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
