PALMER — After suffering a 5-3 loss on Wednesday, the Mat Su Miners had a polar opposite performance against the Peninsula Oilers on Thursday night.
The Miners hit everything the Oilers threw at them, sped around the bases and got yet another strong pitching performance from Andrew McGee.
The result — a 10-5 win over the Oilers that slimmed the Oilers’ chances of defending their ABL title. The Anchorage Glacier Pilots swept a doubleheader to improve to 22-11, while the Oilers dropped 3 1-2 games behind at 18-14. The Oilers have just eight games left to play.
