The Oilers won the first game 4-2 before falling 2-1 in the second game.

Peninsula is now 14-13 in the ABL, good for second place but 2.5 games behind the league-leading Mat-Su Miners. The Bucs are 15-15.

With nine games scheduled for this week, the Oilers got a big boost from starter Tyler Shumpert in the first game. Shumpert went all seven innings for the win, giving up seven hits and two earned runs while walking three and striking out three.

Shumpert improved to 1-2 in ABL play with a 1.96 ERA.

Trey Dawson got the Oilers off to a great start in the game. Dawson was hitting second and homered in the first inning.

“I was just looking for something to put in play,” Dawson said in a postgame radio interview on 1140 AM. “He stuck a fastball over the plate and I hit it pretty good.”

The Oilers, who would score one run in four of the game’s seven innings, struck again in the second inning when Jordan Frese singled to score Marshall Boggs for a 2-0 lead.

In the bottom of the third, Brody Wofford threw out Alan Trejo at the plate to keep the Bucs at bay.

In the top of the fourth, the Oilers went up 3-0 when Alex Seifert, who finished 2 for 3, pounded an infield single off the plate to score Boggs.

In the fifth, the Oilers led 4-0 after Boggs hit a sacrifice fly to score Dawson.

Will Neely took the loss for the Bucs, going 4 1-3 innings and giving up four earned runs on four hits.

In the second game, Justin Mulvaney was able to keep the Oilers at bay until Marshall Boggs hit a two-out home run in the top of the seventh.

But that was not enough as the Bucs got to Oilers starter and loser Billy Oxford for two runs in four innings. Austin Piscotty came on in relief and did a great job of limiting the damage, pitching two scoreless innings.

The Oilers stay in Anchorage to face the Glacier Pilots on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Mulcahy Stadium.
