The Kenai Peninsula Racing Lions have finally hit a good groove in the summer racing season at Twin Cities Raceway dirt track in Kenai, as the five classes of cars and trucks traded paint for glory Saturday night.
Alaska Road Warriors of Wasilla pitcher Jacob Butcher threw a no-hitter to defeat the American Legion Twins 2-0 on Sunday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park.
The Peninsula Clarion reported that Butcher had thrown a one-hitter in Monday's paper.
In the eighth inning of the first game between the American Legion Twins and Alaska Road Warriors of Wasilla at Coral Seymour Memorial Park, won 6-5 by the Twins, the Twins' Tommie Bowe stole second base.
The Peninsula Oilers don't usually make a lot of mistakes, but they did on Friday, and it cost them badly.
The Oilers suffered a malady of blunders that led to a 7-2 loss against the Mat-Su Miners at Coral Seymour Memorial Park.
The Kenai River Brown Bears have come from a team that went 12-38-8 in its first year of existence in the 2007-08 season to a team that has been over .500 in each of the past three seasons.
Yet the Brown Bears have never had a full-time general manager.

Twin Cities Raceway is located at Mile 6.
