Fairbanks’ three, led by the 3-for-3 day by Tyler Covey. Josh Darrow added two hits as well, including a double, and Calvin Hills and Cody Quelland had doubles. Paul Steffensen added a triple.

The Twins would then win 8-3 later in the day.

Friday, the Twins topped Fairbanks 11 15-5 in eight innings are now 8-0 in legion play and 10-1 overall.

In Friday’s game, Cody Quelland was 3 for 6 with two RBIs, Paul Steffensen was 2 for 5 with two runs and two RBIs, and Josh Darrow was 3 for 4 with two runs and two RBIs.

Mathew Daugherty pitched six innings for the win, giving up four hits and two runs (one earned) while walking seven and striking out eight.
