The Twins earned a split with the South Peninsula Storm in a doubleheader in Homer Wednesday.

The Twins lost the first game 5-4 in extra innings, but bounced back to win game two 13-3.

In the first game, the Twins battled back from a three-run deficit on the strength of a three-run homer by Eric Newby in the fifth inning.

The Storm got the run back in the bottom of the frame, but Post 20 was again able to tie up the game when Eric Newby doubled and scored when David Newby reached on an error.

The Storm loaded the bases in ninth inning, but the Twins turned a double play, getting a force out at home and then getting the batter called out when the runner coming home did not slide on the play at the plate.

The Twins got the third out on a grounder to second.

Post 20 was retired in order in the top of the tenth, though, and South Peninsula was able to plate a run in the bottom of the inning on a walk and a fielding error.

Post 20 scored early and often in the second game, getting a two-run homer from Eric Newby in the first, a two-run double from Nick Weigle in the second and a three-run homer from David Newby in the third.
