The 57’s also stole seven bases in the loss, led by two apiece from Quinn Patenaude and Fritzke.

The 57’s also lost game two by a 9-7 tally after a seven-run fourth inning from the Twins. The 57’s had scored four runs in the third inning and fought back with a three-run seventh inning, but were unable to fight all the way back.
