Twins Drop Game Two
Victoria, USA - The Twins offense came out flat again tonight as they fell to the Generals by a score of 9-1. It did not start that way though.
The Twins got off to a fast start plating 1 run in the first inning as Reese Durand came home to score on a 2 Out RBI Single by Christian Boulware to give the Twins the early lead. Michael McElmeel, the Twins starter tonight, started out electric. He did not allow a run through the first 4 innings but then trouble hit in the fifth.
The Twins pitching finally started to struggle, giving up 5 runs to allow the Generals to take a 5-1 lead. The Generals then added 2 runs in the sixth and 2 runs in the seventh to give us our final score of 9-1.
There were bright spots for the Twins though. Boulware continued to heat up, going 2-4 on the night with another RBI. Reese Durand continued to reach base more often than anyone as he scored all 3 runs for the Twins so far this season and added to more hits tonight. Matt Sesler also rebounded, coming in after McElmeel and, while he gave up 4 runs, only 2 were earned and he kept the walks down.
Thank you to all the Twins fans for the support even here in Victoria. The Twins will attempt to clinch a spot in the TCL Championship game here in Victoria tomorrow. For more information about tickets to those games and more visit texarkanatwins.com or call 903-294-PLAY.
