The Anchorage Bucs and Peninsula Oilers split a doubleheader in wet conditions at Mulcahy Park in Anchorage Wednesday, as the Bucs took the first game 12-1 and the Oilers won the second 8-2. Both games were seven innings. The two squads are also tied 2-2 in the five-game series, which ends today with a 7 p.m. matchup.

In the first game, a fast start by the Bucs led to 14 hits against the Oilers, who managed four. All nine Anchorage batters managed at least one hit, which resulted in five doubles, three triples and a home run. Five Bucs batters also batted in two runs.

Catcher Nick Thurman led the Oilers’ bats with a 2-for-3 performance, including a home run. Josh Rose and Jordan Sanford each provided a hit each.

Evan Manarino (1-0) got the win on the mound for Anchorage, pitching five innings and giving up one run on three hits and seven strikeouts. Manarino currently holds a 1.80 ERA this season.

For the Oilers, Jimmy Nesselt (2-1) went four innings, giving up six earned runs on seven base hits, with two walks and three strikeouts. Nick Rogowski pitched an inning with six earned runs on seven hits, and Chad Rieser finished up with one hitless inning on the hill, with one walk and one strikeout.

Cade Reiten started the scoring in the first inning with a double that brought Garrett Copeland home. Reiten was then brought home on a triple from Andy Crowley, who then scored on a home run from Evan Powell. In all, the Bucs scored four runs in the inning.

After scoring two runs in the fourth inning, the Bucs added six more in the fifth on the strength of seven hits.

The Oilers scored their lone run in the top of the third on a homer from Thurman, his first of the year.

The second game continued in drying conditions as the rain eased up — even as the onfield sprinklers delayed things near the end — and the Oilers came away with the victory much the same way the Bucs did in the opener, with a flurry of hits and runs in the first three innings.
