The American Legion Twins swept Fairbanks on Saturday in Anchorage to win their fifth straight game.
The Twins moved to 10-5 in the league and 12-10 overall to vault into third in the standings. Fairbanks is now 3-12.
Twins coach Gary Oliver was not happy with the way his team played in getting swept by Eagle River immediately before the five-game winning streak.
“They have responded very well,” Oliver said. “Today, they had 21 hits in the first game. That’s quite an offensive show.”
The Twins won the first game 16-6 in nine innings.
