Twins fall short to Giants

Comments

The Southeast Legacy Midget AAA Twins came up short against Saskatoon Giants on May 31, losing 6-5 in Weyburn. 

“We played really well,” said coach Derek Wallace. “I thought we outplayed them, just had a couple of bounces that didn’t go our way… and they ended up winning the game.”

The Twins gave up three runs in the seventh and final inning in the loss.

Starter Austin Kuchinka pitched into the sixth, giving up three runs on five hits, with four strikeouts. Carson Perkins took the loss, as he allowed two runs, both earned, in a third of an inning in the seventh frame.

Wallace said that the pitching was solid throughout the whole game.

“Austin Kuchinka…threw really well and put us in a position to … win the game,” said Wallace.

The Twins had a good offensive game, outhitting the Giants 13-7. Sean Jonassen went three for three, hitting three singles and supplying a run batted in (RBI). Brandon Hutt was a home run shy of the cycle, as he went three for four with an RBI.

Wallace noticed the success the Twins had at the plate throughout the game.

“The offence was really solid all game, a lot of guys really starting to come around with the bats,” said Wallace.

The Twins were scheduled to play a double header against the Giants but the second game was cancelled due to a thunderstorm. The game will be played at a later date.

The Twins are slated to play the Regina Athletics in Weyburn on June 5. Then they will host the Swift Current Indians for a double-header at Lynn Prime Park on June 7 at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. They will also visit the Regina Athletics for two games on June 8.
