Twins sweep Bartlett

The American Legion Post 20 Twins swept league and nonleague games from Bartlett on Thursday in Anchorage.

The Twins won the league game 7-2 in eight innings and the nonleague contest 15-0 in five innings to improve to 2-0 in the league and 3-0 overall. Bartlett falls to 0-2 and 1-5.

Post 20 has its first home contests Saturday and Sunday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park. Saturday, the Twins have a noon league game and a 2:30 p.m. nonleague game against Dimond, which was 1-0 in the league and 4-1 overall entering a nonleague game Thursday night. Sunday, the Twins have a noon league and 2:30 p.m. nonleague game against South, which was 3-0 overall entering a nonleague game Thursday.

In Thursday’s league victory, the Twins used a late rally to win the game.

Post 20 led 1-0 after the first inning, but Bartlett answered with two runs in the bottom of the second. The Twins tied things up with a run in the sixth, then scored five runs in the top of the eighth.

Johnny Brinner got the start for the Twins, going two innings and giving up two runs — none earned — on four hits while walking two and striking out none.

Post 20 relievers Simon Grenier and Atticus Gibson were then lights out, allowing the Twins to win with the eighth inning rally.

Grenier went five scoreless innings, giving up two hits while walking one and striking out three. Gibson pitched a perfect inning, striking out one.

At the plate, Gibson was 2 for 5 with a pair of RBIs, Gabe Smith was 2 for 4 and Grenier was 2 for 4.

In the nonleague game, the Twins dominated to invoke the mercy rule after five innings.

Riley Johnson, Jacob Belger, Levi Mickelson and Nate Mowery combined for the shutout.

Johnson went two innings, allowing just one hit while striking out five. Belger worked an inning, walking one and striking out two. Mickelson worked one inning and walked one. Mowery went one inning, walking one and striking out two.

At the plate, Malakai Olson went 2 for 4 with two runs, Mickelson went 3 for 4 with two runs, Gavin Jones went 2 for 5 with two RBIs, Grenier was 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBIs, Mowery was 2 for 4 with two runs and four RBIs, Charlie Chamberlain had two runs, Brinner had two runs, and Belger had two runs and two RBIs.
