Goldpanners complete sweep of Oilers

Posted: Wednesday, July 06, 2005

The Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks completed a three-game sweep of the Peninsula Oilers with a 4-3 victory Tuesday in Fairbanks.

The Oilers, who have now lost four in a row, fall to 7-8 in the Alaska Baseball League. The league-leading Goldpanners improved to 11-2 in league action.

The Oilers had nine hits to the Goldpanners' five, but Alaska got the hits when it counted. The Oilers left 11 runners on base, while Alaska stranded six.

Down 4-3 after six innings, the Oilers had runners in scoring position in the last three innings against Goldpanners reliever Brett Andrade, but never got the clutch hit to tie the game.

The Oilers got on the board first in the third inning, when Rocky Laguna singled in Nate Faulkner.

Oilers losing pitcher Dave Pellegrine could not hold the lead due to wildness. Three of the four runs that scored on Pellegrine got on base due to walks.

Down 4-1, the Oilers battled back in the top of the sixth on a home run by Jake Kahaulelio and a sacrifice fly by David Newby.

The Oilers play at the Mat-Su Miners at 7 p.m. tonight.
