Cole Murchison went 3-5 with a triple and four RBI, but it wasn't enough to carry the West Valley baseball team past Butte at Valhalla Thursday. The Roadrunners rallied past the Vikings 9-5 in the first of a three-game series in Saratoga.
Murchison ripped a two-run three-bagger to center to give West Valley (1-3) a 3-1 lead in the first. His RBI single in the fifth made it 4-3, but the Roadrunners evened it at 4-4 in the seventh and then put it away with a four-run eighth.
The teams meet at Valhalla again Friday at 1:00pm and Saturday at noon.
