The Peninsula Oilers finished Saturday night with a doubleheader split against the Mat-Su Miners, and they finished it with a flourish.
Right-handed starter Billy Oxford pitched a complete game shutout over seven innings to send Peninsula to a 4-0 Alaska Baseball League win in the second game, which followed a 9-0 loss. Oxford (2-0) gave up just three hits in the win.
The St. Mary’s College sophomore who hails from Peoria, Arizona, threw seven strikeouts and gave up two walks. According to ESPN 1140 AM, Oxford topped out at 94 mph on the radar gun.
