Twins run unbeaten string to 10

The American Legion Post 20 Twins pushed their unbeaten streak to 10 on Friday in Kodiak.

The Twins won the league contest 9-6 before playing to a 4-all draw in the nonleague contest. The Twins are now 6-2 in the league and 10-4-1 overall. The Twins have shot up into third place in the American Division, while Kodiak is sixth in that division at 2-6.

In Friday’s league game, the Twins, who were the home team on the scoreboard, fired up their bats in the second and third innings to secure the victory.

Post 20 entered the bottom of the second trailing 3-0, but tied the game in the bottom of the second. Six runs in the third would be all the club needed.

Mose Hayes pitched one inning for the Twins, yielding two runs on a hit while walking four and sitting down two. Harrison Metz pitched the last six, giving up four runs — three earned — on four hits while walking three and striking out four.

At the plate, the Twins were able to squeeze their nine runs out of eight hits. Tanner Ussing was 2 for 3, while Metz was 2 for 3 with a run and two RBIs. Jeremy Kupferschmid, David Michael, Mose Hayes and Seth Adkins also had hits. Kupferschmid and Hayes each had a pair of RBIs, while Jacob Belger and Harold Ochea scored two runs.

The nonleague tie saw the Twins use four pitchers. Kupferschmid worked two innings and gave up two runs and two hits, Adkins worked two innings and gave up one run and two hits, Ussing worked 1 2-3 innings and gave up a run and a hit, and Davey Belger worked 1 1-3 innings and gave up no runs and no hits.

At the plate, Hayes was 2 for 4 with two runs, Michael was 2 for 4 with a run and an RBI, Adkins had a run, Ochea was 1 for 2 with two RBIs, Ussing had a hit and an RBI, and Davey Belger had a hit.
