Scarlets Top Bucks for Opening Season Win

Posted: Updated:

The Billings Scarlets are back to their winning ways, at least for one day. During a dreary Sunday in Billings, the Scarlets managed to use some hot hitting early to put away the Bozeman Bucks 9-8 for their first win of the season.

Bozeman struck fast, opening up a 1-0 lead after a half inning of play, but from there the Billings bats found a way to heat up, scoring two runs in both the bottom of the first and second innings, followed by another run off a double steal in the third to give them a 5-2 lead after three innings of play.

The Scarlets will be back in action this Friday when they play host to the Butte Miners.
