South sweeps Twins

South swept the Twins on Sunday in American Legion action at the Kenai Little League field.

The Twins dropped to 2-2 in the league and 2-4 overall. South is now 4-1 in the league and 5-1 overall.

“They have a lot of returners,” Twins coach Gary Oliver said. “They are pretty tough.”

The Twins dropped the first game, and league game, 13-7. The game went the full seven innings.

“We hit the ball well and they hit the ball well,” Oliver said. “We just came up a little short.”

South had 11 hits in the game, while the Twins had 12.

Dallas Pierren was 2 for 3 with a two-run home run. Shayne Miller was 2 for 3 with a home run, while Justin Wisnewski also went yard and was 2 for 3. Colin Corsetti was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

“We just didn’t have any runners on base when we hit home runs,” Oliver said.

On the mound, Tyler Fritz went the first four innings and gave up seven hits and six runs — three earned. Mitchell Dougherty pitched two innings and gave up three hits and five runs — three earned. Corsetti pitched the last inning and gave up a hit and two earned runs.

In the second game, South notched an 11-1 victory, getting the mercy rule after six innings.

South scored six runs in the first inning. Ben Barton pitched the first two for the Twins, giving up nine runs — eight earned. Zach Haning kept South off the board for two innings, then Hector Rivera gave up two runs — one earned — in an inning.
