The Peninsula Oilers swept a doubleheader from the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks on Monday in Alaska Baseball League action at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks.

The Oilers moved to 6-5 in the American League and are now two games ahead of the Anchorage Bucs (5-8) and three ahead of the Panners (2-7).

In the first game, the Oilers notched a 3-2 victory over the Panners. In the second game, the Oilers’ bats got going in an 8-0 victory.

In the first game, the Oilers jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Jordan Washam led off the game with a double, then, with two outs, Ted Boeke singled to score Washam.

Fairbanks came right back to tie the game in the bottom of the second, but the Oilers would take the lead for good with a pair of runs in the fourth inning.

Bennett Oliver led off the inning with a double. Boeke then laid down a sacrifice bunt, and a throwing error put him all the way on third base and scored Oliver. Brian Ruhm then hit a sacrifice fly to score Boeke.

The Panners would come back with a run in the bottom of the fourth, but despite threatening in the later innings, Fairbanks could never find the equalizer.

Matt Allen got the win for the Oilers, pitching five innings and giving up two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out two.

Sean Michel and Paul Lujan each had a scoreless inning to close the game.

Both Washam and Oliver finished 2 for 3 in the game.

Alex Torson took the loss for Fairbanks, giving up three runs — two earned — and five hits in four innings.

In the second game, the Oilers had five runs in the third inning and that would be more than enough for the pitching staff.

Josh Medeles got the start and pitching five innings for the win, giving up three hits while walking three and striking out three.

Travis Holden and Shane Ennis each added an inning of scoreless relief.

Boeke had a big game on offense, finishing 3 for 5 with a run and an RBI.

Ruhm had two hits and two RBIs, while Alex Seifert and Lukas Hermanson each had two hits.

Loser Nic Janssen lasted just three innings for the Panners, giving up six hits and five runs.

The Oilers stay in Fairbanks for a 7 p.m. game tonight.
