Twins, East split doubleheader

Post 20 loses league contest

The Post 20 Twins and East split a doubleheader Sunday in Anchorage.

 

East took the first — and league — contest 4-2 before the Twins came back for an 11-0 victory that was shortened to five innings due to the mercy rule. The Twins are now 13-3 in the league and 25-8 overall.

The Twins had 10 hits and no errors in the first game but left 12 on base. East had five hits and three errors, and left four on base.

“It was pretty disheartening to say the least,” Twins coach Gary Oliver said. “It was one of those cases where we played rather flat. We tried to get something going, but there were always two outs when we started hitting the ball.”

AJ Hull got the loss, pitching 5 1-3 innings and giving up five hits and four earned runs. He walked five and struck out six. Mitchell Daugherty pitched the last two-thirds of an inning.

On offense, Jake Darrow was 1 for 3 with an RBI, Josiah Covey was 2 for 4 with a run, Mitchell Thompson was 1 for 3 with a stolen base, Shayne Miller was 1 for 4 with an RBI, Ethan Oliver was 1 for 4 with a run and a stolen base, and Justin Wisnewski was 2 for 3.

In the second game, the Twins had 11 hits and no errors and left eight on. East was held to three hits.

Max Hegge picked up the win, pitching four innings and giving up three hits while walking two and striking out two. Daugherty pitched a hitless inning.

On offense, Brian Rowe was 1 for 3 with two runs and a stolen base, Wisnewski was 2 for 4 with a run and a stolen base, Hull was 1 for 2 with two runs, an RBI and two stolen bases, Hegge reached base in three of his four times at bat and scored three runs with an RBI, Tommy Bowe was 3 for 4 with a two-run double and a run, Zack Mese was 1 for 1 with a run and an RBI, and Dallas Pierren was 1 for 3 with a run and a two-run double.

The Twins take on South in a 12:30 p.m. Wednesday doubleheader at Coral Seymour Memorial Park.
