The Peninsula Oilers defeated the Chugiak Chinooks 2-1 on Saturday in Alaska Baseball League action at Coral Seymour Memorial Park.

The win moves the Oilers to 8-7 in the ABL, three games ahead of the Anchorage Bucs and Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks.

The Oilers face the Chinooks today at 2 p.m.

Back in Seymour Park after a trip to Fairbanks, the Oilers pitching staff returned to its stingy ways.

David Diaz picked up the win, giving up a run on six hits, while relievers Shane Ennis, Sean Michel and Paul Lujan closed the door with shutout ball, with Lujan getting the save.

James Fowlkes went 2 for 4 with an RBI for the Oilers, while Billy Wilson was 2 for 3 with a run. Jordan Washam had the other RBI for the Oilers, while Lukas Hermanson had the other run.

The Oilers led 1-0 after the second inning, but Fairbanks came back to tie it in the third. The Oilers took the lead for good in the bottom of the fourth.
