Twins split with Bartlett

The American Legion Twins returned from a road trip to Florida, but still had to play a home game on the road.

The Twins split a doubleheader with Bartlett in Anchorage Wednesday, winning the first game 12-2 in a 10-run-rule-shortened five-inning game. Bartlett came back to win the second game 13-11, needing an extra frame in a game that was scheduled to go seven innings.

While the Twins were the home team, the game was played on the road while the Peninsula Oilers have home games at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai.

In the first game, Kevin Epperheimer pitched five innings for the win, striking out 10 and walking two.

Shawn Isaacs went 2-for-2 with a triple and three runs batted in for the Twins. Ben Stalker had a pair of hits, and Jacob Lamphier had two hits, including a double.

In the second game, the Twins and Bears were tied at seven after seven innings of play. Bartlett scored six runs in the top of the eighth. While the Twins scored four in the bottom of the inning, it wasn’t enough to keep the game going.

Jake Simpson had three hits, including a double and a home run. Jordan Waters and Steven Mabeus each had three hits, both with a double.

The Twins will play East in Anchorage Saturday, and return home to Kenai for the Bill Miller Big Fish Tournament starting Monday.
