Twins blow past South

The American Legion Twins defeated host South 19-6 in eight innings on Sunday in the final game of the regular season.

“It was nice to be able to win our last two league games, yesterday against Bartlett and today a really good victory against one of the top teams in the league,” Twins assistant coach Hector Rivera said. “We’ll have good momentum going into the tournament.”

The Twins piled up 17 hits in invoking the mercy rule in eight innings. Rivera said only one person in the starting lineup did not have an RBI. The Twins also made just two errors.

Brandon Mahle had a huge game for the Twins. On the mound, he went seven innings, giving up seven hits and five runs — three earned. He hit one, walked five and struck out six.

At the plate, Mahle helped himself by going 3 for 4 with three RBIs.

Jake Arnold pitched the last inning for the Twins, giving up a run and walk while also striking out one.

Also on offense, Dallas Pierren had two hits and four RBIs, Tommy Bowe was 4 for 5 with four RBIs, Shayne Miller was 4 for 6 with three RBIs, Ethan Oliver had two runs and an RBI, and Hector Rivera got on four times, scored three runs and had an RBI and stolen base.
