The Peninsula Oilers opened up Alaska Baseball League play Monday with a 5-2 victory over the host Anchorage Bucs.
The victory extends the Oilers’ unbeaten string to 10 games and improves the squad’s overall record to 10-1-2, but most importantly it gets the Oilers on the board with a 1-0 record in the ABL. The Bucs are 5-2 in the ABL.
The Oilers had five errors on the day, but the defense came through when it mattered. Mylz Jones had a couple of dazzling plays at shortstop, and the Oilers turned three double plays.
The biggest double play came in the ninth inning.
