Jeans leads Twins to victory over Acadiana

Jeans leads Twins to victory over Acadiana

July 11th, 2018 by Brian Tyl in Sports

The Cane Cutters' 11-game win streak is over.

Tyler Jeans tossed five innings, gave up a run and three hits, struck out two, walked two and hit two batters as the Texarkana Twins defeated the Acadiana Cane Cutters, 3-1, on Tuesday at George Dobson Field.

"Tyler had a good start and gave me five solid innings," Twins head coach Nolan Fanning said. "The bullpen guys came out and picked it up, and they all did an excellent job."

Jesus Gamez came in to pitch with the bases loaded in the fifth, and Gunner Halter helped Jeans out in relief.

"Acadiana has been playing hot lately and have been scoring 8-10 runs per game," Fanning said. "The pitching staff came up huge for us tonight to limit them to one run."

Jalynn Keys bunted on safely for the Twins' first hit of the game in the third. Keys stole second and moved up to third on a passed ball.

Halter hit an RBI single that bounced high to the first baseman, and the speedster beat the baseman to the bag as Keys scored.

Cam Hill hit a one-run double down the first base line to score Colton Kessler, who walked, moved to second on an error and moved up to third on a fielder's choice. Texarkana took a 2-0 lead in the fourth.

Hill reached third on a single by Avery George and scored on a fielder's choice to pad the Twins' lead, 3-0.

Acadiana put up a run in the sixth as Texarkana's lead decreased, 3-1. Jesus Gamez came in to pitch with no outs in the sixth, induced a double play and right fielder Peyton Faulkner saved a run with a diving catch for the third out.

Cane Cutter starting pitcher Donovan Ohnoutka threw 4 2/3 innings, took the loss, allowed three runs on four hits, struck out two, walked three and hit a batter.
