The South East Legacy Midget AAA Twins won two of four recent home games in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League.
The Twins lost 10-1 to the Regina Wolfpack on May 30 in Estevan – a game in which the Twins were down 4-0 by the middle of the third inning.
Then they split a double-header in Weyburn against the Saskatoon Giants on June 2, winning 4-3 in 10 innings and losing 9-3.
Austin Orsted had three hits in the win over the Giants. He was also the winning pitcher, as he surrendered just one run in the final four innings of the game. Tanner Odgers and Mackenzie Lamontagne each had two runs batted in (RBIs).
The Twins scored twice in the first inning in the second game against the Giants, but surrendered three in the third and two in the fourth to fall behind. They managed only six hits in the loss.
The Twins scored two in the bottom of the ninth in a 5-4, come-from-behind victory over the Regina Mets on June 5 in Estevan. Jolan Lingelbach had a home run and a triple, and Tanner Odgers had two RBIs.
Starter Austin Orsted lasted six innings. Reliever James Giroux was the winning pitcher.
The Estevan Sherritt Coal Bantam AAA Haulers enjoyed a dominant weekend, sweeping double-headers against Melville and Yorkton.
Estevan defeated Melville 13-2 in five innings, and 12-7 on June 2. The following day, they knocked off Yorkton 15-2 in five innings, and 7-6.
Coach Kent Phillips said the defence and the pitching were very good against Melville. Bailey Lonsberry launched a home run into a stiff wind in Game 1. The Haulers scored eight times in the fifth inning of Game 1 to enact the mercy rule.
Kyler Phillips earned the win in Game 1. Preston Hutt was the winning pitcher in Game 2.
The Haulers had a great pitching performance from Carson Perkins in Game 1 against Yorkton. He pitched a complete game, and struck out many batters, Kent Phillips said. The Haulers capitalized on all of Yorkton's mistakes.
Yorkton's pitching was much better in Game 2, but Estevan still scored enough runs to win. Brandon Hutt was the winning pitcher.
Up next for the Haulers is the Regina Baseball tournament from June 8 to 10.
