Oilers tied up after 13

Posted: Sunday, July 01, 2001

The Peninsula Oilers were locked in an extra-innings battle with the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks that was suspended due to darkness at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks Saturday.

The Oilers and the Goldpanners were deadlocked at three runs apiece after the 13th inning. The game will resume at 7 p.m., and will be followed by another game against the Goldpanners.

Marshall Boze started the game for the Oilers, leaving with the score knotted tied at three after 6 2-3 innings of work.

Ryan Wing relieved him, holding the Goldpanners scoreless through the 13th inning.

Peninsula recovered from giving up a 3-0 lead to take the rubber match against AIA Friday at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks.

It was the second win in a row for the Oilers and it put the club back above the .500 mark in the Alaska Baseball League.

While a couple of wildfires in the Fairbanks area provided smoky air at Growden, the Oilers continued swinging some hot wood of their own.

Peninsula banged out 11 hits in the game on its way to scoring 10 runs. The Oilers have now averaged 11 runs in their last four ballgames.

In the meantime, Peninsula starter Juan Serrato was doing a job on the AIA bats that would have made any firefighter proud. Serrato carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and ended up giving up four runs -- two earned -- on three hits while walking seven and striking out six in 5 2-3 innings of work.

Jeremy White picked up the win for Peninsula in relief, throwing 3 1-3 scoreless innings while giving up just one hit.

Peninsula got the scoring started in the top of second inning when Brian Horwitz, who would finish 2-for-4 with four RBIs, singled home Justin Seely, who was just getting started on a 3-for-4 performance.

Mark Teahen tacked on another two runs in the inning when he singled home Matt Cunningham and Jefferson Thiel.

AIA cut the Peninsula lead to 3-1 in the bottom of the second before Will Bolt scored on a sacrifice fly from Trey Hendricks to push the cushion to 4-1 in the top of the fifth.

AIA came back to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth, but the Oilers quickly responded with five runs in the top of the seventh. The big blow in the inning was a three-run home run from Horwitz.

Peninsula tacked on an additional run in the eighth when Seely knocked in Wilton Reynolds, who finished 2-for-4 on the night.
