The Twins were singing in the rain Tuesday night as they defeated Danville 6-2 at Joe O’Brien Field. 

After a rain delay that pushed the Twins’ start time back two hours, Elizabethton and Danville finally hit the field at 9 p.m.

After a scoreless first inning, the Twins got things started in the second. Kamran Young ignited the Twins, when he smacked a triple to right field, ushering home both Travis Blankerhorn and Brad Hartong. Young also made it home, scrambling in off a sacrifice fly from Nelson Molina. The final run of the inning came from LaMonte Wade, who brought home teammate Manuel Guzman with a line-drive single.

The game went scoreless for two innings, before the Braves finally found the board, with Ronald Acuna skipping home off a sacrifice fly by Alejandro Flores in the fourth. The Braves grabbed another run in the eighth inning.

The Twins added two runs in the bottom of the eighth.

The Twins’ Cody Stashak opened things up at the mound for the Twins. Stashak threw for five during which he struck out six batters, while walking two. The right hander had one run and no hits against him. Stashak handed the ball over to Logan Lombana in the sixth.

It was Milligan College Twins Night Tuesday. The game was kicked off with Milligan’s David Brown, manager of grounds and landscaping at Milligan, throwing out the first pitch.

After finishing up with Danville, the Twins will take a day off Wednesday before heading over to Pulaski,  where they will be tested by the Yankees, who sit on top of the East, while the Twins rule in the West.
