Goldpanners season comes to an end

The Alaska Goldpanners saw their season end Wednesday at the 80th National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kansas, with a 4-3 loss to the San Diego Waves.

The Waves enter the semifinal round, which sets up the championship game to be played Saturday. The Panners end with a 2-2 record at the tournament.

Bob Kraft pitched a complete game for the Waves, giving up three runs (two earned) on eight hits, one walk and two strikeouts. Joel Belk took the loss on the mound for the Panners, tossing four innings and giving up three runs (none earned) on six hits, two walks and four strikeouts.

Scott Hurst led Fairbanks at the plate by going 3 for 4 with one RBI, but the Panners’ luck wasn’t good as they grounded into a double play three times, all of them ending the inning.
