The Derby Twins saved their 4th of July fireworks for the final three innings, scoring 9 of their 10 runs in the 6th, 7th, and 8th frames to pull away for a 10-2 victory over the Haysville Aviators Tuesday night at Panther Field in Derby.
Anthony Dominguez started the flurry with a two run homer in the bottom of the 6th putting the Twins in front for good 3-2.
The Twins added two more runs in the seventh inning when Noah Bland and Tyler McNamara put together back-to-back RBI base hits giving the Twins a 5-2 lead before the Twins blew the game open in the bottom of the 8th.
After Tyler Myers led off with a walk and Jonathan Fernandez reached on a fielder's choice, Alex Bibb and Connor Basler followed with one out, back-to-back doubles with Basler's producing 2 rbi giving the Twins an 8-2 advantage. Basler then scored when Noah Bland reached on an error two batters later putting the Twins up 9-2. Bland then scored on another Aviator error when Tyler McNamara grounded to third and Haysville third baseman Raymond Rodriguez threw wild to first and the Twins went up 10-2.
Four Twins pitchers combined to allow one earned run, with Ryan McCutcheon relieving starter Zach Burch for a full inning and picking up the win.
The Twins remain three games back of first place Liberal who also won Tuesday night, with the second game of their three game series Wednesday night in Haysville at 7:00.
