The Flames dropped to 6-2 in the division (11-5 overall) but are still in first place. The Twins improved to 5-3 in the division, good for second.

Wiedower, who started, earned the win. He pitched six innings and gave up four hits and four walks while striking out three. Worm notched a save after going three frames and allowing one hit and a walk to go with three strikeouts.

Zac Cain had a strong pitching outing for the Flames but took the loss. He started and threw seven innings – allowing one run (unearned) on five hits with three walks and four strikeouts.

Flame reliever Greg Rhude gave up two unearned runs on two hits with one walk and two whiffs in one inning.

The Twins took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth. Erik Wade drew a one-out walk and scored on a two-out, infield error.

T-M added two insurance runs in the eighth on Luke Scheurlein’s two-out double. An infield error earlier in the frame caused both runs to be unearned.

Plymouth missed several scoring chances as it left nine runners on base. The Flames left the bases loaded in the third and stranded two runners in the ninth.

Matt Rhude and Greg Krahn led the Flames in hits with two each.

Wade and Scheurlein paced the Twins in hits with two each.

“It was a disappointing loss. We did not hit well,” said Flame manager Rick Meyer. “I have to give them [Twins’ pitchers] credit.

“Zac did a very good job [pitching]. He battled and worked through a hot day.
