Glacier Pilots shut out Oilers

Posted: Tuesday, July 31, 2001

The Peninsula Oilers continued to struggle on offense at the 2001 Bucs Gillette Wood Bat Invitational, falling to the Anchorage Glacier Pilots 7-0 Monday at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.

With the loss to the Pilots, the Oilers dropped to 0-2 at the tournament. In both of the losses, the Oilers have failed to score a run. Peninsula will look to get in the win column at the round-robin tournament with a pair of games today.

The Oilers play the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks at 11:30 a.m. before taking on the Bay Area Stars at 2:15 p.m. Both games can be heard on 1140 AM.

After two days of play, the Anchorage Bucs sit atop the tournament with a 3-0 record, while the Goldpanners are 2-0. The Glacier Pilots and Mat-Su Miners are 2-1, while the Oilers are 0-2 and the Bay Area Stars are 0-3.

Monday, Pilots starter and winner Reed Pawelk shut out the Oilers over seven innings, which is the scheduled length of all the Wood Bat games until Thursday's semifinal and Friday's championship.

Pawelk gave up seven hits, but did not walk a batter and struck out four. The only Oilers player to have any success against him was Mark Teahen, who finished 2-for-3.

Meanwhile, the Glacier Pilots jumped all over Oilers starter and loser Cordell Perkins. Anchorage struck for four runs in the first inning and chased Perkins after four innings.

Perkins gave up seven runs -- five earned -- on seven hits while walking five and striking out one. Jeremy White came on in relief of Perkins and pitched three scoreless innings.

Ben Fritz did the most damage for the Pilots, going 2-for-3 with two runs and two RBIs. Rodney Allen also scored two runs for the Pilots, while Matt Hopper was 2-for-3.
