In the first game of the series, the Twins went run for run with the Cane Cutters until the 4th inning. The club scored early in the 1st inning from Colton Kessler’s single. In the 2nd inning Peyton Faulkner got on from a single and was brought around by JoJo Craig and Gunner Halter, he was eventually brought home by a Cane Cutter error. In the 4th inning Craig hit a two-run home run giving the Twins a two-run lead. The team fell silent for the remainder of the game at the plate.

The Twins fell silent at the plate until the 7th inning when Gunner Halter and Peyton Faulkner scored on a Colton Kessler’s single. The Twins played well defensively throughout both games, the Cane Cutters bats were just heavy at the right time throughout the night.
