The Gallatin Valley Outlaws continued their hot play over the weekend by winning 3 of 4 games at the Harold Gjerde Memorial Tournament in Lewistown.

The Outlaws won twice on Friday and then split their games on Saturday to improve to 9-13 following a 3-12 start.

Gallatin Valley began the tournament with a 3-1 victory against Havre, and then broke open a close game late against Lewistown en route to a 12-3 victory to cap Friday.

A late rally came up short in a 3-2 defeat to the Billings Cardinals to begin Saturday, and then the Outlaws capped the tournament with a 13-2 rout of Miles City.

Isaac Richardson led the charge against Havre, scattering five hits and striking out four in a complete game effort on the mound. Brady Jones was 2 for 4 at the plate.

Against Lewistown, the Outlaws took a 5-3 lead into the sixth before breaking the game open with a seven-run burst. Patrick Dietz and Richardson belted doubles in the contest, while Caleb Kamerman relieved Brady Jones on the hill to toss a 3-hitter and strike out eight in four innings of work.

Saturday, Billings’ Jadyn Averille won a pitching dual with Dietz. The duo combined to allow just five hits and strike out seven.

The Cardinals led 3-0 after five innings, but Gallatin Valley rallied to get within one in the sixth. But five errors proved costly in the Outlaws’ comeback.

Gallatin Valley wrapped up the tournament by rallying past the Mavericks. The Outlaws scored in every inning to counter a pair of runs Miles City scored in the top of the first, and Mayson Shively finished 2 for 3 with a double.

On the mound, Cyrus Richardson scattered five hits and didn’t allow a walk in a complete game effort.

Gallatin Valley, which has won six of its past seven games, is back in action at a tournament in Gillette, Wyo. June 25-28.
