FLORENCE — The Glacier Twins first made short work of the Bitterroot Bucs, then had to work extra to complete a doubleheader sweep in Class A Legion baseball Tuesday.

Mikey Glass doubled and drove in four runs in the Twins’ 16-3 win in the opener. In the nightcap Dayne Tu’s eighth-inning RBI single scored Josiah Ruther with the winning run in a 4-3 victory.

The Twins (13-3) took advantage of 12 walks and four hit by pitches issued by Bucs pitching in the first game, a lot of those coming as they built an 11-2 lead after two innings.

Back-to-back doubles by Glass and Hayden Meehan highlighted a five-run fourth inning that put the first game away.

Mason Peters scored four hits and allowed two unearned runs in the opener. Maddox Muller got the final four outs and gave up a run in the fifth.

Bitterroot errors helped the Twins in the second game; Glacier scored two unearned runs in the second and another when Jake McIntyre stole third in the sixth inning and came home on an errant throw.

Bitterroot led 1-0 on Jake Roth’s solo homer in the second, and tied it on three singles in the sixth.

Meehan got the win on the mound, taking over for Talon Murphy and scattering four hits and two walks in six innings. He fanned one.
