The Giants parlayed a catcher's interference call and an error into the winning run Tuesday as they defeated the Twins, 3-2, in Fountain Valley Little League Majors Division action at Mile Square Park.
The interference call and outfield error occurred in the bottom of the third inning.
The Twins took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first when Nathan Young singled before Riley Hanson drove a two-strike pitch over the center-field fence. In the bottom of the first, Drake Sueda and Azael Peralta singled for the Giants and Derrick Weinheimer's grounder to shortstop was thrown away, the two-run error tying the score.
In the bottom of the third, Alex Frias walked and went on to score the winning run.
The Giants played errorless defense and turned two double plays.
Hanson went two for three and his home run was his third of the season, which ties him with Parker Smith of the Red Sox for the division lead.
