Oilers losing streak hits 8

Posted: Wednesday, July 04, 2007

Sean Bard homered and Kevin Camacho pitched eight innings of three-hit ball in sending the Peninsula Oilers to their eighth consecutive loss, a 7-4 defeat Tuesday night in Fairbanks.

After opening the season with an 11-1 homestand, the Oilers are now 11-8 overall and 3-8 in Alaska Baseball League action.

The Oilers took a 1-0 lead in the third when Jim Pollack walked, advanced to third on a single by Kyle Melton and scored on a Michael Dabbs sacrifice fly. But the Goldpanners quickly erased the deficit in the fourth with two runs on two hits and an error. Bard opened the inning with a single and took second when Paul Martin reached on an error. Both runners then advanced on a ground out and scored on a base hit by Chris Lum. The Panners tacked on two more in the fifth when Bard homered to left field and they added four more runs in the sixth.

The Oilers scored their second run in the top of the sixth when Dabbs doubled and Nick Buss knocked him in with a single. They scored their third run in the eighth and another in the ninth.

Oilers' starter Andre Lamontagne suffered the loss after allowing four runs (one earned) on six hits through five innings. John Dunn relieved and gave up three runs in only 1/3 of an inning, Paul Smyth added 1 2/3 innings of relief and Chuck Rider pitched the eighth.
