The Peninsula Oilers snapped a three-game losing streak by coming back to defeat the Anchorage Glacier Pilots 7-6 on Monday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai in Alaska Baseball League action.

The Oilers went into the bottom of the eighth trailing 6-4, but rallied with three runs.

The big blow in the inning was a one-out triple by Darius Hill that scored Shih-Tsung Wang and Alex Seifert. Hill would then come in to score the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Trey Dawson.

Ryan Lillie came on in the ninth to record the save for the Oilers. With Kyle Watson on third and two away, Lillie was able to strike out Tyler Walters.

Austin Piscotty picked up the win for the Oilers, coming on for starter Cody Wood.

Piscotty pitched two innings and gave up an earned run while fanning three.

Hill finished 3 for 5 with two runs and two RBIs for the Oilers, while Dawson was 2 for 4, Brody Wofford was 2 for 4 with two runs, Seth DeWitt was 2 for 3 and Jonathan Washam was 2 for 3 with two RBIs.

The Oilers host the Pilots tonight at 7 p.m. at Seymour Park.

 

Former Oilers player makes big leagues

Former Oilers player Mike Miller was called up by the Boston Red Sox on Monday. Miller went 0 for 1 in Boston’s 13-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in Florida, coming in at second base and hitting for Dustin Pedroia late in the game.

Miller played for the Oilers in 2010 and 2011, winning Alaska Baseball League Player of the Year in 2011.

The Oilers won the ABL that year before losing to the Santa Barbara (California) Foresters in the championship game of the National Baseball Congress World Series.
