Pats Split Games With Mavericks


Kory Halvorson came through with a single that scored two runners as the Richland County Patriots knocked off Miles City, 6-4, in the first game of a home double-header Sunday.

The game was deadlocked at 4-4 entering the bottom of the sixth. The Patriots started the inning with Adam Wentz hitting a single and Cody Voss being hit with a pitch. With two outs, Halvorson singled to bring home Wentz and Voss for a 6-4 advantage.

Wentz retired the Mavericks without a run scoring in the seventh to earn the victory. Bridger Coffman pitched the first five frames for the Patriots.

The Patriots struck for two runs in the opening inning when Kyle Mueller scored on a single by Max Peters and Brett Norby crossed the plate on a sacrifice fly by Matt Dey.

Richland added a pair of runs in the third when Hunter Severson came home on an infield hit by Wentz and Dey scored on a single by Voss.

Miles City, however, scored three runs in the fourth and another in the top of the sixth for a 4-4 deadlock.

Leading for the Pats were Wentz with two hits and Halvorson with two RBIs.

The Mavericks won the nightcap by a 15-3 margin. Miles City accounted for six runs in the fourth and another six runs in the seventh inning.

Peters had two hits while Norby scored twice to lead the Patriots.
