The South Whidbey Little League Twins are on a roll.

The Twins are 10-2 after securing wins during a doulbeheader on Saturday, May 21. The Twins, a majors division team, beat the North Whidbey Dodgers 11-0 in five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule. Max Divina pitched a no-hitter.

Not to be outdone, Charlie Patterson pitched a no-hitter in the second game, a 13-0 win against the North Whidbey Athletics. It was also a shortened game due to the 10-run rule. The 12-year-old tallied 11 strikeouts in four innings -- a near-perfect game.

At 10-2, the Twins' only losses were against the other SWLL team, the Phillies.
