7 Straight Wins for Northmen
The Twin Cities Northmen downed the Toronto Hurons, 6-5, at Dominion Field. Danilo Basilio led the way, going 3-for-4 for Twin Cities. Twin Cities, now 12-7, has played well in the early going.

Twin Cities used the clutch hitting of Bran Maverly to capture the win. The right fielder drilled a 2-run home run in the top of the ninth inning to put the Northmen ahead, 6-4. It was his only hit in 5 at-bats, but it was a big one.

"We had the game right there for the taking," said Toronto manager Jim Burns. "But we decided not to take it."
