Mat-Su stops Oilers' three-game win streak

Posted: Thursday, June 27, 2002

The Mat-Su Miners topped the Peninsula Oilers 6-3 Wednesday night at Coral Seymour Memorial Park to snap the Oilers' three-game winning streak.

The game also halted a four-game losing streak of the Miners. The third game in the four-game series will be tonight at Coral Seymour Memorial Park at 7 p.m.

The Oilers grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Preston Griffin doubled and scored on a single by Andy Schutzenhofer.

However, Oilers starting pitcher Oscar Serrato had a tough time holding the Miners down. Serrato gave up five runs and seven hits in six innings of work.

Mat-Su got to Serrato for three runs in the top of the second, but the Oilers actually came back to tie the game in the fifth. In the inning, Brian Wahlbrink singled and eventually scored on an error, while Schutzenhofer reached on a fielder's choice and scored on a single by Mike Cox.

But after that, the Miners tallied runs in the sixth, seventh and eight innings to gradually pull away from the Oilers.

Mat-Su's Moises Duran and Matt Ciaramella were constant thorns in the Oilers' sides Wednesday. Duran, the leadoff hitter, went 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs. Ciaramella, batting eighth, had three hits and one RBI.

Griffin and Chris Kolkhorst each had two hits for the Oilers.
