BELGRADE — Gavin Trudgeon hit a walk-off single Saturday, and the Butte Muckers beat the Bozeman Bucks B team 6-5. (Boxscore)
The game was part of the Boys of Summer “B” Tournament, and the win sends Butte to bracket play. The Muckers will take on the Gallatin Valley Posse at Noon Sunday.
Trudgeon’s two-out single in the bottom of the seventh scored Tyler Duffy, who reached on an error.
The game-winner was the eighth hit of the game for the Miners. Lucas Harris-Huerta doubled, and Garrett Sharp joined Duffey with two singles. Zach O’Connell and Matt Donaldson also singled for Butte.
Harris-Huerta pitched the distance for the win. He struck out four and did not issue a walk.
