The American Legion Twins are down, but not out.
After falling in a 4-3 walkoff loss to South on Tuesday’s opening day of the Legion State tournament in Anchorage, the Twins were facing the threat of elimination Wednesday morning at Mulcahy Field.
However, two late runs provided the key to victory in a 4-2 triumph over Fairbanks Post 11, ensuring Post 20 another day of action.
“It’s important to our program,” said Twins coach Robb Quelland. “There’s a lot of tradition with this team, over forty years, and we feel we have the same destiny as the 2012 team.”
