The American Legion Twins capped a soggy day that turned sunny at the Kenai Little League fields with a 3-0 loss to Tennessee Post 19 on the first day of the Bill Miller Big Fish Wood Bat tournament.

The day was scheduled to begin early with a matchup between Columbia, Tennessee, and East Anchorage at Coral Seymour Memorial Park, but rain that saturated the field there forced the show to move to the little league fields, where the field could tolerate the wet stuff.

In other games, East beat Eagle River 9-8, and Tennessee defeated East 5-2.

Against Columbia, Tennessee, the Post 20 Twins could manage just three hits in the shutout loss — one each from Kenny Griffin, Calvin Hills and Cody Quelland — while Tennessee notched six base hits. Columbia opened with three quick runs in the top of the first inning, then made it stand up with solid pitching and defense.

The Twins will play East today at noon at the Kenai Little League fields, while Tennessee will take on Eagle River at 3 p.m.
