League of Our Own
Champ Twins in league of their own
The Twins capped off their season with a 9-1 victory over the Yankees in the championship game of the League of Our Own, at Seton Park on Sunday.
The Twins raced out to an early 4-0 lead after the first inning, behind some clutch hitting by Olivia Weinstein.
In the third inning, the Yankees pushed across a run against Twins pitcher Leora Krasner as Neima Fine scored the Yankees lone run of the game.
In the fourth inning, with one runner on base, Kyra Tepler hit a shot to leftfield and circled the bases for a two-run homer.
The Yankees threatened several times, but good defense by the Twins kept them off the scoreboard. Samantha Maryles and Emma Nordlicht made for a good one-two punch at shortstop and third base, making several put outs.
In the bottom of the fifth, Micah Hartman had her first double of the year, and came around to score later in the inning.
