The Derby offense failed to capitalize on several early scoring opportunities and stranded eight baserunners, as Wellington took the season finale by the final score of 6-0 on Wednesday night at Hibbs-Hooten Field. After a hit by pitch and a walk gave the Twins two on with nobody out in the top of the first, Wellington starter Brett Clark retired the next two hitters. Kyle Walker then slapped a single into right, but Bryce Fischer was gunned down trying to score to end the inning. The Heat would take advantage of the shift in momentum in the second, as Dayne Sommer blasted a solo home run off Derby starter Nick Rathke. But the big blow came in the fifth, when Rathke allowed a two-out single and then walked three consecutive hitters to make the score 2-0. Matt Heck then roped a double into the left field corner, increasing the Heat lead to 4-0. The Derby bats continued to sputter, getting single runners in every inning but the seventh and failing to score any of them. An RBI single from Heck off reliever Tyler Nelson lengthened the lead out to 5-0 in the seventh, and a throwing error by Brandt Holland tacked on another insurance run to produce the final margin. The Twins would threaten with two outs in the ninth, getting a single from Alex Hrinevich and a walk from Dustin Miller, but failed to break up the shutout against Wellington righthander Daulton Leiker. Derby finishes the season with a record of 15-29, 8-13 in the second half of Jayhawk League play.



Twelve Derby hits and a sterling starting pitching effort from Jake Englehart helped the Derby Twins to a 10-1 win over the Wellington Heat on Tuesday night at Panther Field. In the 2016 home finale, the Twins turned to Englehart for his first start of the season. The righty promptly delivered one of the best starts from any Derby pitcher, twirling eight innings and allowing just a single run. He danced around baserunners in every inning but the seventh, stranding 12 Wellington runners in his eight frames. In the meantime, the Derby offense began to figure out Heat starter Evan Johnson. Grayson McCurry got the scoring started in the bottom of the second, slicing a two-run triple into the right field corner for a 2-0 lead. A throwing error from Wellington first baseman Brett Clark made it 3-1 in the fifth, and Doug Rhodes increased the lead to 4-1 with a two-out single in the sixth. The Twins exploded against the Wellington bullpen, getting two in the seventh courtesy of a two-run single from Jason Plyn and then four more in the eighth to make the score 10-1. Brennan Grant launched a three-run homer in the frame, his second round-tripper of the season, and then Mason OBrien followed with a solo shot. Luke Veltri worked a quick and easy 1-2-3 ninth inning to close out the victory. The two teams will battle in the rubber match tomorrow night, with first pitch from Hibbs-Hooten Field in Wellington scheduled for 7:00 pm.



Two unearned runs in the bottom half of the ninth inning, capped off by a Tre Holly infield single, propelled the Wellington Heat to a walk-off 3-2 victory over the Derby Twins on Monday night at Hibbs-Hooten Field. Derby starter Tyler Nelson and David Flattery of Wellington traded zeroes for the first three frames, as neither team managed to get a runner to third base. But the Heat cracked the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth, using a leadoff walk and back-to-back singles from Austin Krajnak and Kendall Radcliffe to seize a 1-0 lead. Nelson was ejected at the end of the inning for arguing balls and strikes, so the Twins were forced to turn to reliever Anthony Baleto in the fifth. The righty did not disappoint, flipping a scoreless fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth innings to give the Twins offense a chance to rally. Derby finally got to Flattery in the top of the eighth, when a one-out walk to Brennan Grant brought Mason OBrien to the plate. The Twins slugger deposited a 2-0 fastball into the trees in right, giving Derby their first lead of the ballgame at 2-1. Flattery exited with 13 strikeouts to his credit on 123 pitches, turning the ball over to Wellington closer Sean Cruz. Cruz teamed with Heat reliever Daulton Leiker to navigate a scoreless ninth, sending the game to the bottom half with Derby still in front. After a single and a fielders choice, Wellington had a runner on first with one out when Matt Heck smacked a hard ground ball to the left side of the infield. After Twins shortstop Greyson McCurry was unable to field it cleanly, leftfielder Brennan Grant threw wildly to third, allowing Trent Maloney to come all the way around from first to tie the score at 2-2. A sacrifice bunt from Jacob Trimble moved Heck to third, where he would score on a hard smash from Tre Holly that deflected off the shoulder of OBrien at first base. The two teams will be right back at it tomorrow night for game two of the series, with first pitch from Panther Field in Derby scheduled for 7:00 pm.



The Derby Twins will finish off their regular season schedule with a three-game set against the Wellington Heat, beginning on Monday night with the series opener at Hibbs-Hooten Field in Wellington. Game two on Tuesday will shift to Panther Field in Derby for the home finale, and then the series concludes back in Wellington on Wednesday. All games are scheduled for a 7:00 first pitch.
