The Peninsula Oilers dropped a 9-5 nonleague contest to the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks Saturday at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks.

The loss dropped the Oilers to 5-4 overall. The Goldpanners no longer compete in the Alaska Baseball League, so Peninsula’s 4-2 league record remained intact, keeping the Oilers tied atop the standings with the Mat-Su Miners (5-3).

Friday, the Oilers took a 3-1 lead over the Anchorage Glacier Pilots into the bottom of the 12th inning when the stadium sprinklers kicked in, soaking the outfield grass. When efforts to turn the water off failed after a 30-minute delay, the game was suspended. The contest will finish at a later date.

Tied at one run apiece, the Oilers’ Shih-Tsung Wang batted home the go-ahead run on a double in the top of the 12th, then went on to score an impressive insurance run from second base on a ground-out by Cameron Miller.
