Texarkana, TX (July 23, 2020)- tonight had many Twins fans and players seeing double, as they took on the Acadiana Cane Cutters in a 7-inning double header tonight. Both hard-fought games did not turn out in the Twins favor tonight, as they lost both games by scores of 13-1 and 14-2.
Game one started out slow for the Twins, but was fast and furious for the Cutters, as they scored three runs in the first two innings, and scored all 13 runs before the Twins could score their first run. In the bottom of the 6th inning, Austin Colon finally broke the silence for the Twins after he reached home on a bases-loaded walk, but that was the only noise the Twins made in game one as the Cutters took the game in decisive fashion, winning 13-1. Game two started about the same, with the Cutters scoring three runs in the first inning. However, the Twins gave the Cutters a run for their money, scoring two runs of their own in the bottom of the first, after Austin Colon and Jose Vargas hit back-to-back singles and later came home. The Cutters then ran away with the game, scoring 11 more runs through the rest of the game.
