Oilers fall to Chinooks

Posted: July 17, 2014 - 10:36pm

The Scouting Showcase and All-Star weekend in the Alaska Baseball League could not come soon enough for the Peninsula Oilers, who lost their third-straight game, falling to the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks at Loretta French Field in Eagle River on Thursday.

With big hitting from Jackson Cramer, the Chinooks shut out the Oilers 4-0 for their third-straight win and bumping their season mark to 7-20 in the National League. The Oilers dropped to 9-17 in the American League and are eight games back of the leading Alaska Goldpanners (14-6) in the division.

Cramer belted a leadoff homer in the second inning for his first run of the game en route to a 2-for-3 batting day that included three RBIs. Teammate Steve Karkenny also came up big, hitting 3 for 4 with a run.

Jake Sandlin and Mylz Jones each hit 2 for 4 to lead the Oilers.

On the mound, Sean Mason picked up the loss in five innings of work, giving up two earned runs on five hits, six walks and four strikeouts. It took Mason 110 pitches to get through the stint.

Kyle McDorman recorded the win for the Chinooks in 2 2-3 innings, with one hit, one walk and one strikeout, and Shane Armstrong had the save with no runs and no hits in 2 1-3 innings of work.

After two runs in the second inning, which was highlighted by Cramer’s home run and Josh Altmann’s RBI single, the Chinooks added two more in the seventh. Cramer hit a single with two outs on the board that scored Jonathan Popadics and Steve Karkenny to extend the lead.

The two teams will play again today at 1 p.m. at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage, the first game in the Scouting Showcase.
