Yellowjackets sweep

Went to see MSU Billings sweep a doubleheader from Minot State on Sunday. It was a lovely day for baseball, at least until the last couple of innings, when the weather began to turn a little raw.

The Yellowjackets won 8-2 and 4-0. Samuel Paterson (1-3) had a three-hit shutout going into the ninth of the opener, then gave up a couple of unearned runs — thanks to his own throwing error — and needed a reliever for the final out.

Matt Eames, who came into the game having surrendered 10 runs (three of them unearned) in 10 innings of work, pitched a shutout in the second game.

There were no home runs, and I wasn’t keeping score, but Ty Gilmore came into the series hitting .388 for MSU Billings. I suspect he’s over .400 now. Shortstop and cleanup hitter Colby Robison   had an excellent doubleheader, and shone especially on defense.

Whew. It’s been a long winter without baseball.
