Chinooks roll past Oilers

The host Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks defeated the Peninsula Oilers 7-1 on Wednesday in Alaska Baseball League play at Lee Jordan Field.

The Oilers are now 2-4 in the league, while the Chinooks are 3-4. Peninsula gets another shot at the Chinooks tonight at 7 p.m. at Lee Jordan Field.

The Chinooks went up 2-0 in the bottom of the first on Oilers starting and losing pitcher Mason Kokodynski and never looked back.

In the top of the second, the Oilers got on the board when Chase Katafias doubled and Dalton Bowling had an RBI single.

But the Chinooks picked up two unearned runs in the bottom of the third and kept expanding the lead from there. Kokodynski pitched three innings and allowed four runs — two earned — on five hits while striking out three and walking none.

Homer product Mose Hayes then came in as a relief pitcher and ate up a significant chunk of innings for the Oilers, who are short on pitching right now.

Hayes had pitched about half the game Monday against the Anchorage Glacier Pilots, but he bounced back to toss five innings against the Chinooks, giving up three runs on four hits while walking one and striking out two.
