{{featured_button_text}}

Missoula Big Sky won the opener of its tripleheader against Eastern AA teams on Friday, but didn’t fare so well beyond Game 1 of the trio at the Eagles’ McEnahey Field.

Behind Morgan Johnson’s big day at the bat, Western AA Big Sky took it to Bozeman 21-5.

Johnson finished 4 for 5 with a pair of home runs and a double. She homered in Big Sky’s eight-run bottom of the first inning, a rally that followed Bozeman’s half when three runs scored, and then added a two-run shot in the third.

Jaime Schafer, Quincy Preston and Hope McCracken were all also 3 for 3 in the onslaught.

Dani Daley batted 3 for 3 for Bozeman, which got five early runs against pitcher Macey Newbary. Newbary and Rauk, who threw the final two innings, shut down the Hawks after that, though.

Through Friday’s action, Big Sky is 15-6 overall this season.
