The Peninsula Oilers grabbed an 8-4 win over the Anchorage Glacier Pilots in Alaska Baseball League play Tuesday evening at Mulcahy Stadium. The win put Peninsula within two games of the Mat-Su Miners in the ABL table, which were leading 5-0 over the Chugiak Chinooks midway through Tuesday’s late game.

Dom Bazzani gave up three hits to earn the win on the bump for the Oilers, going five innings and giving up four earned runs. Bazzani struck out six and walked four. Andrew Bash held Anchorage in three innings of relief pitching, giving up zero hits or runs and walking just two batters while striking out two.

Darius Hill put up superb numbers from behind the plate, hitting 4 for 5 and scoring four times. Jonathan Washam hit 3 for 4 with two RBI.

The Pilots and Oilers went toe to toe with each other through three frames with a 3-all tie before the Pilots scored a run in the bottom of the fourth to go ahead 4-3.

However, the Oilers answered back in the top of the fifth with a vigorous rally as Seth DeWitt put Peninsula ahead with a two-RBI double.

The Oilers later added a run in the seventh inning and two in the ninth. Overall, the Oilers out hit the Pilots 10 to 3.

The Oilers return home today with a 6 p.m. date with the Anchorage Bucs at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai.
