The Micksburg Twins travelled across the border Thursday night to Quyon for game two of the Greater Ottawa Fastball League semi-finals.

Pitching match-ups were the same as game one: Joran Graham for the Twins and Trevor Lahey for the home side.

The Flyers took a early lead in the first as the lead off batter Dave Hobbs hit a ball between the outfielders making his way to third and scored on a passed ball making it 1-0.

Both teams struggled offensively as each pitcher settled in. At one point Graham retired 12 in a row all via strike outs.

With Quyon still leading 1-0 in the seventh, the visitors started things off with back to back singles by Jamey Mick and Corey Costello. With runners on the corners and none out, the Flyers elected to walk Chad Costello loading the bases. Then with one out, Scott Conroy took his second pitch he saw and drilled it on a line to left center clearing the fence for the grand slam and giving the Twins a 4-1 lead.

Graham was able to shut down the Flyers in the bottom half earning the win in an impressive outing, striking out 18 giving the Twins a 4-1 win and a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-five semi-final.

Game three is scheduled for Tuesday September 15 at 8 pm in Micksburg.
