HELENA -- Taylor Sparks, Aristides Aquino and Garrett Boulware all homered in the first inning and the Billings Mustangs defeated Helena 7-3 in Pioneer League baseball Thursday at Kindrick Legion Field.

Luke Moran picked up the victory for Billings to improve to 2-4. He worked the first six innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs. Moran didn't issue a walk and fanned seven.

Sparks, a third baseman, batted 3 for 5 with two runs and an RBI. In addition to his fifth homer, he also hit his fifth double. Sparks and Aquino hit back-to-back homers. It was Aquino's 12th round-tripper of the season.

The Mustangs travel to Great Falls Friday for a 7 p.m. game.
