Missoula topped Billings 2-1 back on Friday night and what a local connection you had in this game to decide the Pioneer League North Division title with Dallas Newton(Southeast Guilford HS) on the field and on the hill for the Missoula, Montana Osprey and Blake Butler(Southeast Guilford HS/College of Charleston) on the team that Missoula beat, the Billings, Montana Mustangs…Two former Southeast Guilford Falcons meet again on opposing teams in the minor league baseball playoffs….

Newton at (2-3) with an 6.85 ERA in 18 games with 7 starts for 44 2/3’s Innings pitched allowing 42 runs on 55 hits with 34 earned runs, while walking 21 and striking out 30 batters…

Butler’s season was limited with just 5 games played for the Billings Mustangs(.222 AVG, with 18 at-bats)..Most of Butler’s Summer was spent in the Arizona League with the Reds team there….Dallas Newton’s Missoula Osprey meet the Idaho Falls Chukars tonight at 7pn in Game One of the Pioneer League Championship Series….

    Southeast Guilford has three players that played on the same team in high school trying to make it to the show—
    Josh Tobias was named MVP in the NY Penn league in his rookie season. Dallas Newton has been switched to a reliever role and his velocity is 94 to 97. He is excited about coming out of the bullpen and his ERA is coming down. Blake butler had a great rookie season and according to Dallas Blake looked good starting at second base and went two for four at the plate in the second game of the playoffs.
    These young men are great athletes on the field and great ambassadors for Jesus Christ off the field. I was honored to have been associated with these young men as they came through Southeast’s program.
    I wish we could go back in time and try again to capture a state title with this group but since we can’t turn back the clock we will be satisfied to wish them the best in the future.
