The 18U AAA Southeast Twins were at home at Lynn Prime Park in Estevan Thursday night, entertaining the Parkland Expos for a pair of games. The Twins were looking to get a win back from the Expos, after falling 5-1 to Parkland on the road Sunday.
The Twins would take the first game by a final of 10-7, but then the visitors would rally in the fifth inning and hold on to win the second game 14-10.
The first game saw the Twins get led by Peyton Balon, who got on base in all four at-bats, being walked three times, while being responsible for bringing home three runs, and also hitting a triple.
Carter Beck added two RBIs of his own, with Brody Dorrance, Dylan Frey, Callum Hollinger and Cooper Walbaum adding RBIs as well
Hunter Stewart had the start on the mound, going five innings, and striking out six. He allowed two runs on five hits. Nathan Yunick took over on the mound for the sixth inning, allowing four runs, three earned, on five hits. The seventh inning would see Beck strike out two while allowing one unearned run.
The second game was a tight one until the fifth inning when the Expos exploded for seven runs to take the lead, and they never looked back.
The Twins were helped out by Hollinger, who had a two-run home run in the loss. Spencer Copeland drove in three runs himself, with Dorrance, Walbaum and Mason Fichter also chipping in with an RBI each.
Copeland also finished the game with three stolen bases.
On the mound, Aiden Trimble was tagged with the loss. He went 4 1/3 innings, striking out two and allowing six runs on six hits. Kade Phillips also pitched a third of an inning in the fifth, giving up five runs, two of which were earned, on one hit and three walks.
Holling finished the final 2 1/3 innings of the game, striking out four, while allowing three runs, one earned, on four hits.
