Oilers ousted from tourney

Posted: Monday, August 09, 2010

The Sedalia (Mo.) Bombers lived up to their nickname in ousting the Peninsula Oilers from the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kan., on Sunday.

Sedalia hammered two home runs in a 5-3 victory that kept the Oilers from improving on their total of three NBC titles and five NBC finals appearances.

Peninsula's loss also means Oilers head coach Dennis Machado will not be returning to the NBC finals for a second straight year. Machado led the Anchorage Glacier Pilots into the finals last season. The Oilers finished 3-2 at the NBC tourney.

The Oilers scored runs in the first and second innings to take an early lead in the game on eventual winner Blake Barber, but in the fifth inning the Bombers jumped on Oilers starter and loser Ryan Woolley. Sedalia scored four runs on five hits in the fifth, clouting two doubles and a home run.

In the sixth inning, the Bombers tacked on another home run for a 5-2 lead.

The Oilers tried to keep their season alive in the top of the ninth inning, putting the first two runners on base and scoring once for a 5-3 game. The rally died with three straight outs, with Dan Kickham picking up the save.

Michael Miller led the Oilers by going 2-for-4 with two runs. Tyler Grimes, James Lilley, Patrick Wisdom, Davis Page and Sean Madigan also had hits for the Oilers.

Every member of the Bombers lineup had at least one hit.
