Oilers beat Panners, snap skid

Posted: Wednesday, June 28, 2006

The Peninsula Oilers returned home to the friendly confines of Coral Seymour Memorial Park Tuesday, and Jesse Jordan settled right in, pitching a complete-game shutout as the Oilers defeated the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks 3-0 in Alaska Baseball League play.

The win snaps a five-game Oilers losing streak. The Oilers will face the Goldpanners in the second game of a three-game series tonight. Game time is 7 p.m.

Jordan allowed just three hits in the game — all of them by Panners catcher Jessie Mier — and struck out five batters while issuing just one walk.

Jordan didn’t allow a runner past second base until the ninth inning when Beau Mills reached on a fielder’s choice and took third on a single by Mier with one out.

Oilers catcher Kip Masuda gave his pitcher a lift, though, picking off Mier at first for the second out of the inning. Jordan then notched a strikeout to end the game.

Masuda also scored the Oilers’ first two runs, taking advantage of some Panners errors. Masuda reached on an error to lead off the third and advanced on a groundout. He took third when the Panners catcher overthrew second base on a pickoff attempt, and scored on a single by Austin Yount.

Masuda singled with one out in the fifth, and Chris Nelson followed with a single. The Oilers then executed a double-steal, and Masuda was able to trot home when the catcher’s throw down to third sailed into left field.

Jake Kahaulelio added an insurance run for the Oilers with a solo home run to lead off the eighth. The blast chased Panners starter Chris Kissock, who gave up three runs, one of them earned, on on eight hits. Kissock walked four and struck out six.

Kahaulelio finished with two hits for the Oilers, as did Brian Van Kirk.
