The Peninsula Oilers dropped a 6-1 decision to the Anchorage Glacier Pilots on Thursday in Alaska Baseball League play at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai.
The two clubs were finally able to get a game in after rain pushed back Tuesday and Wednesday contests.
The Oilers drop to 11-23, two games behind the Anchorage Bucs for the fourth and final ABL playoff slot. The Oilers have six games left to play. The Glacier Pilots are 16-16.
The Oilers have scored just four runs in five games against the Pilots this season, but Thursday’s game started on a more optimistic tone with Garrett Pennington going yard in the first inning.
That would be all the scoring Pilots starter Nate Diamond would allow in picking up the victory.
Oilers starter Andre Orselli kept the home team ahead until the seventh inning, when the Pilots pushed across two runs.
That would be all it took to get Orselli the loss, as he now sits at a hard-luck 0-6 despite a 2.57 ERA.
Lee Atkinson gave up four runs in the eighth for the Oilers.
The two teams play a doubleheader, with seven-inning games at 4 and 7 p.m., today at Seymour Park.
