Twins held to four hits, lose 4-2

By

Offensive woes have Elizabethton staring at unfamiliar territory.

For the first time in 18 years, a Twins baseball team is staring at a record below .500 in August thanks to East Division leader Bluefield, which took advantage of a lopsided hit column in a 4-2 series-opening decision at Joe O’Brien Field.

“We didn’t square many balls up,” said Elizabethton manager Ray Smith. “That’s not giving ourselves that much of a chance when you can’t put guys on base. It makes it tough on our pitching staff to go out and throw shutouts every time for us to get a chance to win. That’s not going to happen too often.

“Hopefully one guy will get hot and it will get contagious.”
