Fish Suffer Back to Back Shutout Losses at Mulcahy Park

Game Recap by Lee Jordan

There was a grand ballgame tonight at Mulcahy Stadium, the Anchor- age Glacier Pilots winning by a 1-0 score. The people who run the Alaska Baseball League, though, will probably count the first four innings and re- cord the final score as 13-0. Our side would prefer the page ripped off at the end of the fourth as a more comfortable keepsake.

The Chinooks mustered five hits, but couldn’t put two together. Pilots pitchers rang up four three-up, three-down innings while allowing only four to come to the plate on four occasions. In one of the two innings where five red jerseys were able to step up to bat, one of those was nullified by a double play.

Until tonight having their own troubles on the offensive side, the Pilots blasted 13 hits, scoring an equal number of runs thanks to five walks and one hit batsman.

Chinooks starter Andrew Klausmeier took the loss. He was relieved in the bottom of the fourth with none out by Devin Stanton who gave up a sin- gle, then got the next batter to ground into a double play, Stephen Ventimilia to Nick Covello to Daniel Salters. Max Bruckner took over the mound in the bottom of the sixth and completed the game.

Tomorrow night provides an opportunity to turn the tables as the Pilots come to Loretta French Park for the second and third games of a three-game home and away series. Game time on both nights in 7 p.m.
