Twins sweep Bartlett in doubleheader

Posted: July 14, 2012 - 10:17pm

The Post 20 Twins swept Bartlett in a doubleheader Saturday in Anchorage, winning the first game 8-2 and rallying to win the second game 13-9.
“I told the guys afterward that I have two words for them — Ug-ly,” Twins coach Gary Oliver said, talking about the second game.
Bartlett and Kenai both scored a run early to tie the game after three innings, but Bartlett scored three runs in the fourth inning and five in the fifth to take a daunting 9-3 lead moving into the sixth inning.
Unmoved, the Twins put up 10 unanswered runs in the final two innings, including seven in the final inning, to rally back and steal the win. Ethan Oliver hit a ground ball to the shortstop, but the shortstop made an error, allowing Zack Mese and Justin Wisnewski to score the tying and winning runs, putting Kenai up 10-9.
Jake Darrow then hit a three-run homer that gave the Twins some insurance.
Darrow hit 2 for 2 with one run, five RBI and a double, Mitchell Daugherty went 1 for 3 with three runs and three RBI, and Hull hit 1 for 4 with two runs and two RBI.
The Twins had 11 hits, six errors and eight men stranded, while Bartlett had 10 hits, six errors and nine men stranded.
Miles Jones pitched four innings, giving up six hits, four runs and one strikeout, but recorded no walks or hit pitches, impressive after he recently took time off with his family, according to Gary Oliver.
In the first game, Kenai scored three runs in the first inning to take the lead and never look back, earning one run in the third, three in the fourth and one in the sixth. Bartlett scored both of their runs in the seventh.
Hector Rivera and Hull both walked in the first inning, which set it up for Daugherty to smack a two-RBI single to put the Twins in the lead.
Hull hit 1 for 3 with three runs and an RBI, Josiah Covey hit 2 for 4 with a run and two RBI, and Mitchell Thompson hit 3 for 4 with one run and two RBI.
Kenai racked up 10 hits, one error and left nine men on base, while Bartlett had four hits, three errors and also stranded nine men.
Brandon Mahle pitched three innings with one hit, no runs and four strikeouts.
The Twins are now holding a 13-2 record in the league, and 24-7 overall, and play another doubleheader against East on Sunday starting at 12:30 p.m. in Anchorage.
Oliver said he would like to thank the parents and fans that join the Twins on the road games, and is appreciative of their support.
