The American Legion Twins split a doubleheader on the road against the Fairbanks Tri-Cities 49ers Tuesday, winning the first game 4-2 before losing the second game 10-6.
In the first game, the Twins picked up the victory in the 10th inning on RBIs by Kenneth Butler and Robby Rounsaville.
Corey Grimm went all 10 innings for the Twins to pick up the victory.
"That was especially good, because Fairbanks is a big-hitting ballclub," Twins manager Lance Coz said. "Corey spotted his fastball and had a good changeup."
In the second game, the Twins held the lead through the fifth inning, but Fairbanks scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to take control of the game. Zack Hicks picked up the loss for the Twins.
The Twins are now 5-11 overall. They will look to improve on that today, when they face Fairbanks in another doubleheader on the road. The twin bill starts at 4 p.m.
