Twins sweep West

The American Legion Twins swept West on Wednesday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park.

The Twins won the league game 4-1 and the nonleague contest 14-3 to move to 3-8 in the league and 6-13 overall, while West drops to 5-7 and 6-11. The top two teams in each division, plus the next best four, make the state tournament. The Twins are currently eighth after the top two in each division.

In the league win, the Twins led 1-0 after the first only to have West tie it in the second. The Twins scored in the third, fifth and sixth innings to salt away the win.

Atticus Gibson pitched six solid innings for the win. Gibson gave up three hits and an unearned run while striking out five and walking one.

Harrison Metz pitched the last inning for the save, giving up a hit while striking out the side.

Metz also led the offense by getting three of the Twins’ five hits and scoring two runs. Daltyn Deborski and Riley Johnson also had hits.

The Twins invoked the mercy rule after 4 1-2 innings in winning the nonleague game. The local nine had four runs in the first inning, six in the second and four in the third.

Metz was 2 for 2 with three runs, while Sam Berry had two runs and two hits, Gibson had two runs and two hits, and Jacob Belger had two runs. Berry, Gibson, Belger, Andrew Pieh, Colby Sturman and Jackson Duperron also had hits.

The Twins host South at Seymour Park on Saturday, with a 12:30 p.m. league game and 3 p.m. nonleague game.
