Powered by a home run from David Newby and an 8 2/3-inning effort from starting pitcher Jarrod Dumont, the Peninsula Oilers defeated the Anchorage Glacier Pilots 6-3 Wednesday at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage in Alaska Baseball League play.
Newby gave the Oilers a 1-0 lead with his home run to left field in the second inning, and the Glacier Pilots could get just one run off Dumont through eight innings of play.
Dumont finally tired with two out in the ninth inning as the Pilots rallied for a pair of runs on three hits and two Oilers errors. Chuck Rider relieved Dumont and needed just two pitches to finish the game.
Dumont allowed 10 hits, struck out four and walked four.
Luke Salas went 2-for-4 for the Oilers, Jack Rye was 2-for-3 and Chad Tracy was 2-for-5 at the plate.
The Oilers, winners of five straight, will continue their road trip today with a doubleheader against the Glacier Pilots. The first game is scheduled to start at 5 p.m.
