Oilers finish up season

The Peninsula Oilers took a 6-1 loss to the Chugiak Chinooks on Thursday at Lee Jordan Field in Alaska Baseball League play.

The Oilers, at 14-26, ended the season in last place and missed out on the Top of the World Series playoffs.

Garrett Pennington did not play Thursday for the Oilers, but he still nearly pulled off the Triple Crown.

Pennington led the league with a .336 average and with six home runs. He came up short in the RBIs department, getting 22 with Diego Baqueiro of the Anchorage Bucs getting an RBI in the Bucs’ 5-3 victory over the Miners on Thursday to nip Pennington with 23 RBIs.

The Chinooks grabbed a 3-0 lead after the first inning and 4-0 lead after the fourth inning. In the top of the fifth, Lee Atkinson led off with a double for the Oilers, then eventually scored on a single by Andrew Sojka. The Chinooks would score twice in the bottom of the fifth and cruise to a victory.

Lee Atkinson took the loss for the Oilers, pitching five innings and giving up six runs — three earned — on six hits.

Jake Putnam had two innings of scoreless relief, while Nolan Patterson had one.

The Oilers had four hits, with Sojka getting two of them. Bryce Marsh and Lee Atkinson added hits.
