The Southeast U18 AAA Twins baseball team won four consecutive games to start the season.



The Southeast U18 AAA Twins won all four games they played in their opening weekend of the season.

The Twins started the campaign in style with a pair of lopsided wins over the Swift Current 57s, winning 12-2 in six innings and 15-4 in 5 1/2 frames. Both games saw the mercy rule invoked.

The Twins jumped on the 57s early in the first game with five in the second inning and three in the third. They finished the game with six hits and 10 walks.

Spencer Copeland, Hunter Stewart and Cooper Walbaum each had two runs batted in (RBIs) for the Twins.

Kade Phillips and Aiden Trimble each pitched three innings.

The Twins fell behind 4-0 in after two innings of the second game, but then plated seven in the third and four in each of the fourth and the fifth.

Nathan Yunick had three runs, two RBIs and two singles for the Twins.

Mitch Himmelpach pitched the first inning for the Twins, and then Hunter Stewart came in for the final four innings.

The Twins then pulled off two come-from-behind victories Sunday against the host Moose Jaw Canucks, winning 10-7 and 9-7 on Sunday. The second required an extra inning.

Walbaum had two runs, a single and two RBIs in the first game, while Conner Kerr had two runs, two singles and an RBI.

Himmelspach allowed just one walk in three innings of scoreless relief.

The Twins were down 4-1 through four innings, but pulled even with two in the sixth and one in the seventh. Then they outscored the Canucks 5-3 in the extra inning.

The Twins will have their home opener on May 14 against the East Central Red Sox at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at Lynn Prime Park.
