The Anchorage Glacier Pilots defeated the Peninsula Oilers 5-3 on Sunday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai, handing the Oilers their second straight loss.

The Oilers, who fall to 4-2 in league play, now take Monday off before 7 p.m. nonleague games with the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Pilots got to Oilers starter Blake Allen for three earned runs and six hits in six innings. Anchorage added another run in the top of the seventh off Dom Bazzani for a 4-0 advantage before the Oilers rallied when starter and winner Weston Rivers was removed for Tanner Sanders to start the eighth.

Sanders got the first two outs of the eighth before encountering trouble.

Alex Seifert singled, then scored on a triple by Brian Ruhm. Ruhm would score on a wild pitch.

Cameron Miller then singled and Austin Piscotty walked to chase Sanders in favor of Timothy Holdgrafer, who was greeted by an RBI single from ShihTsung Wang.

But that would be as close as the Oilers would get, and Bazzani would allow another run in the top of the ninth.

Wang led the Oilers with a pair of singles, while Kyle Watson was 2 for 4 with a pair of runs for the Pilots.
