Tahoe Twins to host doubleheader vs. Chico Sugar Kings

The Tahoe Twins are scheduled to host a doubleheader against the Chico Sugar Kings at North Tahoe Regional Park on Saturday at noon and 3 p.m.

Coming off a pair of losses to the Aces Scout Team, 6-3 and 8-7 this past Sunday, the Twins enter the nonleague doubleheader at 8-8 overall.

and#8220;Weand#8217;ve kind of been in a little slump hitting the ball, so weand#8217;re looking to come out of it this weekend,and#8221; said Twins manager Bob Habeger, whose team is a member of the wood-bat National Adult Baseball Association. and#8220;Our defense has been letting us down a little bit, too. Our pitchers are doing a great job.and#8221;

Jesse Hildebrandt will likely start the first game for the Twins on Saturday, Habeger said, while 2008 North Tahoe grad Sean Bernardo is slated to start Game 2. Habeger said Jake Morford and Joe Thomas, who has been nursing a tender arm of late, could pitch in relief.

Twins pitcher/catcher Franklin Orlando, a 2006 North Tahoe grad, will likely play for the Sugar Kings on Saturday, said Habeger, who explained that both Orlando and Twins teammate Ryan Gilmore played for the Sugar Kings while attending Chico State. He said the Chico team is in need of pitching, and Orlando needs some innings.
