WICHITA, Kansas – Closing in on Championship Week at the National Baseball Congress World Series, the Derby Twins remain in the title hunt following Wednesday’s 11-1 run-rule win over the Kansas Cannons.

Up 4-0 after roughly a three-hour rain delay, the Twins continued their offensive attack at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. Tyler Eager helped lead Derby’s scoring barrage, driving in two more runs on a hit to left centerfield.

The Twins also received a boost from a late roster addition who could have been pitching for the Cannons. Derby’s Steven Cazares said, “Actually, that team that I just pitched against, I was supposed to go there and then, like two days before the tournament started, they dropped me and I had to find a place, so I came here. Irony came and got them right!?!”

Next up for the Twins, they’ll play either Austin or San Diego in a must-win NBC World Series game on Thursday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
