Oilers drop fourth straight ballgame

Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2001

The Peninsula Oilers lost their fourth straight game, falling 13-12 in 10 innings to Athletes in Action Wednesday night in Fairbanks.

The loss drops the Oilers to 5-6 and into fourth place in the Alaska Baseball League. Peninsula is two games behind the front-running Anchorage Glacier Pilots.

Wednesday night's game was a back-and-forth affair. The Oilers, who committed six errors in the game, had the lead going into the bottom of the ninth, but AIA came back to tie the game at 10-10 against Oilers reliever Ryan Wing.

Peninsula came right back in the top of the 10th inning and grabbed a 12-10 lead when Justin Seely hit a single that scored Wilton Reynolds and Luke Simmons.

However, AIA came back in the bottom of the 10th inning to get three runs off of Wing and loser Mike Mendez.

The Oilers will look to get back on the winning track today when they face AIA at 7 p.m.
