Appalachian League: Elizabethton turns away Bristol

By Allen LaMountain

Hostilities resumed on Monday after rain washed away Sunday’s contest between the Elizabethton Twins and Bristol Pirates at Joe O’Brien Field.

The Twins (7-4) continued to show dominance over the Bri-Rates in an 8-5 victory.

No team from Bristol (the Sox or Pirates) has taken a series from ’Betsy since the Sox beat the Twins two-of-three in July of 2011 — and with the loss in the opening game, they may not this season either.
