Hot-hitting Miles Gordon homered and the Billings Mustangs completed a sweep of the Great Falls Voyagers Monday night with a 3-1 Pioneer League baseball victory at Dehler Park.

Gordon's two-run homer in the bottom of the third staked the Mustangs to an early 2-0 advantage. It was the right fielder's third homer of the young season. Gordon also tripled to lead off the fifth inning.

He finished the night batting 3 for 4 to raise his season average to .442.

With the three-game sweep of Great Falls, the Northern Division-leading Mustangs improved to 10-5 on the year. Great Falls slipped to 6-9 with its seventh consecutive setback.

The Voyagers whittled the Mustangs' lead to 2-1 in the top of the fourth when Craig Dedelow led off with a double and eventually scored on a double play. Billings made it 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth by pushing home a run on a fielder's choice.

Dedelow, Justin Yurchak and Jacob Cooper had two hits apiece for the Voyagers.

Luis Alecis (2-1) was the winning pitcher for Billings in relief of starter Packy Naughton. He struck out four, walked one and allowed one hit in three innings.

The Mustangs will remain at home Tuesday afternoon to host the Helena Brewers at 4:05 p.m.
