Chinooks beat Oilers in extra innings

Posted: July 8, 2013 - 11:35pm

The Chugiak Chinooks rallied for a late lead and ultimately won a 5-4 game against the Peninsula Oilers in 11 innings on Monday night at Loretta French field in Chugiak.

Drew Turbin hit the game-winning single that brought Stephen Ventimillia across home plate in the bottom of the 11th. Ventimillia led Chugiak with 3-for-4 hitting.

For the Chinooks, they won a second straight Alaska Baseball League game with the same score, as they beat the Goldpanners of Fairbanks 5-4 on Sunday. The loss was the second straight for the Oilers.

The Oilers had 11 hits to the Chinooks’ 12, and each team had one error.

Jake Alvarez hit 3 for 5 with a run, Mike Wieland was 1 for 5 but with two RBI, and Michael Hoo went 2 for 5 with a run. Cody Repenning received the loss, pitching the final 3 2-3 innings for the Oilers, striking out five. A.J. Quintero pitched the first 6 1-3 innings, allowing one run and getting four strikeouts.

Wieland hit a two-RBI single in the third inning that brought home Mercurio and Alvarez for the early 2-0 lead, but the Chinooks started building some momentum in the late going, starting with a sacrifice fly from Nicholas Covello that scored Ryan Shackleford in the seventh.

In the eighth inning, Sonabend scored off a double from Dillon Dobson, putting the Oilers up 3-1, but Chugiak kept coming.

In the bottom of the eighth, Collin Radack nailed a solo home run, and Daniel Salters hit a double that scored Drew Turbin and Tyler Krahn, allowing the Chinooks to take the 4-3 lead.

However, the Oilers saved their game — for the time being — with a mistake in the top of the ninth inning from the Chinooks.

Hoo hit a single, then advanced to third base on a wild pitch that was made as Hoo was attempting to steal second. Andre Mercurio then advanced to first on an error by the shortstop, allowing Hoo to score the game-tying run.

The Oilers are now sitting with a 10-9 league record, 1 1-2 games behind the leading Goldpanners, and will face the Mat-Su Miners in a doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m. today.
