Oilers notch victory at Wood Bat tourney

Posted: Tuesday, July 30, 2002

The Peninsula Oilers plated a run in the bottom of the seventh and final inning against the Omaha Zone, coming away with a 6-5 win to level their mark at 2-2 in the Anchorage Bucs Wood Bat Invitational Monday at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.

Chris Kolkhorst started the rally, reaching on an error with one out. After Mike Cox drew a walk, Preston Griffin hit a pinch-hit single to score Kolkhorst and end the ballgame.

The Zone had taken an early lead, scoring four runs on three hits and an error in the first inning against Oilers starter Stephen Copeland.

The Oilers were able to get three runs back in the bottom of the first on an RBI single by Adrian Schau and a two-run single by Kolkhorst.

The Oilers tied the game in the second. Paul Richie singled with one out, took second on a wild pitch and was awarded an additional base when the ball went out of play, and scored on a single by Brian Wahlbrink.

Omaha plated a run in the top of the third inning, but the Oilers once again knotted up the score with a run in the fifth. Kolkhorst singled with one out and scored on a double by Cox.

The score remained tied at 5 heading into the seventh inning.

Daniel Underwood picked up the win for his work in relief of Copeland, striking out two without issuing a walk in a hitless inning of work.

The Oilers are scheduled to play Athletes in Action-Alaska today at 1:45 p.m. (1140 KSLD) in Wood Bat competition.
