Oilers outlast Bucs

Posted: Wednesday, June 26, 2002

The Peninsula Oilers won their second straight Alaska Baseball League game Monday night, defeating the Anchorage Bucs in 10 innings at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.

The Oilers put up four runs in the first inning. Brian Wahlbrink led off the game with a triple and scored on Preston Griffin's single.

Andy Schutzenhofer followed with a single, and after a walk and a run-scoring double play, Daniel Underwood blasted a two-run homer to give the Oilers the early advantage.

Anchorage got a run back in the bottom of the first, then took a one-run lead with four runs in the bottom of the second, but the Oilers were able to put together a three-run rally in the third inning.

Mike Cox and Jerrod Brown started off the frame with consecutive walks, and Underwood singled to load the bases. Rusty Beale walked to force in a run, and the Oilers plated a second run on a double play. Underwood scored the final run of the inning, crossing the plate on an error to give the Oilers a 7-5 lead.

The Bucs cut the lead to one with a run in the fourth, but Cox singled and scored on a base hit by Paul Richie to give the Oilers a two-run cushion in the top of the ninth.

Anchorage tied the game in the bottom of the ninth, but the Oilers plated the winning run in the top of the 10th. Preston Griffin was hit by a pitch with one out and scored on a double by Schutzenhofer.

Adrian Schau, who had given up two runs in the ninth, came back to strand a pair of Bucs runners in the bottom of the 10th to secure the win.
