The American Legion Twins dropped into the losers' bracket at the state tournament with an 8-6 loss to Fairbanks on Saturday at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.
The Twins now face elimination in a game today against West at noon at Mulcahy. The local nine split a pair of league games with West this year.
The Twins, the No. 7 seed, threw a scare into Fairbanks, the No. 2 seed.
AJ Hull was able to silence the Fairbanks' bats for seven innings. Hull gave up one hit and two earned runs, but he did walk eight and hit three batters in throwing 120 pitches.
