BUTTE -- Jessica Robertson pitched two complete games to lead Butte to a pair of Eastern AA softball victories over Billings Senior on Saturday.

The Bulldogs won the first game 7-2 and took the second game 7-5. Roberts finished the day with a combined 16 strikeouts.

Maria Michelotti hit two home runs in the first game to lead Butte. Amanda Spear also homered and drove in three runs. The Broncs were able to load the bases in the first two innings but only managed to push across one run on a Kristin Kaiser RBI single.

Senior cut Butte's lead to 5-4 in the fifth inning of the second game when Mackenzie Morgan delivered a two-out, two-run single. But Butte responded with two runs in the sixth.

Senior had the tying run at the plate in the seventh but pushed just one run across and got no closer. Morgan finished with three RBIs.
