Oilers, Panners bat around in divisional play

Posted: July 8, 2014 - 11:08pm

The Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks pushed themselves to a winning season with a dominant 15-4 win over the Peninsula Oilers Tuesday evening at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks.

Both teams knocked out 14 base hits, but the Goldpanners took advantage of nine walks to capture the win, compared to just one walk that the Oilers received. Peninsula also left nine men on base.

A late grand slam by Cody Nulph in the bottom of the seventh capped a four-hit, seven-run inning, effectively sealing the victory. The Panners also had five runs in the fifth inning to distance themselves. Nulph hit two homers to bat in five runs, while teammate Brandon Caruso had a field day by hitting 4 for 5 with three runs and two RBIs.

Nick Thurman and Alex Rubanowitz each had three hits to lead the Oilers, while Jeff Paschke and Jake Sandlin provided two hits apiece.

The win leaves the Panners with a 6-5 American League record in the Alaska Baseball League, two games behind the Anchorage Bucs (12-7). The Oilers dropped to 7-9 (16-10-2 overall), 3 1-2 games behind the Bucs.

Jimmy Nesselt (2-2) received the loss on the mound for the Oilers, going 4 1-3 innings, giving up six runs on seven hits, three walks and two strikeouts. Jace Puckett (4-0) recorded the win for the Panners by pitching 6 1-3 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits, one walk and six strikeouts.

Mylz Jones, who hit a triple later in the game, scored the opening run of the day in the second inning on a single from Paschke, but the Panners responded at the bottom of the inning when Tanner Pinkston scored on a sacrifice fly from Mike Wieland.

The trouble in the fifth inning started with a home run from Nulph, included a 2-run double from Scott Hurst, and ended with five runs scored on four hits. During the inning, Nesselt was taken off the mound in favor of Chad Rieser.

Both teams face each other again today at 7 p.m.
