Keaton Ralston fired a four-hitter, and Ray Moore Jr. and Kienan Stief combined for seven RBIs as the Helena Senators Legion baseball team defeated Wassau 10-1 in seven innings in their opener at the Minneapolis Tournament on Friday.
Ralston struck out three and walked two in the five innings contest, and has allowed but five hits and no earned runs in his last two outings.
Moore belted a grand slam home run, while Stief belted two doubles with three RBIs, and scored three runs.
"A good start to our tournament," said coach Dave Thennis, whose Senators move to 22-20. "Keaton was tough again and our hitters were out today. We're headed for fun now, to see a Twins game tonight."
Helena will play two games on Saturday.
