Bucs raid Loretta French, win 6-1 over Chinooks

Box score CHUGIAK – On the opening night of official league play for the Chinooks (2-3), the Anchorage Bucs (4-2) took the win at Loretta French Park on Friday night.

The Chinooks offense would get its only contribution to the scoreboard on the second pitch of the bottom of the first inning.  Jimmy Lambert, the Bucs starting pitcher, left a fat one right over the plate for Steve Pollex who punished the ball high over the fence in right-center field.

Lambert would go on to shut down the Chinooks offense surrendering just two more base hits, not allowing any Chinooks touch second base.  After Bret Marks came on to relieve Lambert in the fifth inning, the trend would continue.  The Fish would not string together multiple base hits in an inning until the sixth when Bret Collins and Nick Covello would single, and Mark Linsday walked to load the bases.  Next came Griffith Roark with the bases loaded and two outs, but Marks would get him to fly out to left field.

Michael Fairchild made the start for Chugiak-Eagle River.  He made it through the Bucs order in order the first time through, but the fourth inning would be all the offense the Bucs would need.  Garrett Copeland and Cabe Reiten would single to start off the inning followed by a third single from Andy Crowly to tie the game at one run apiece.

The big knock came from Mark Krueger.  The Bucs first basemen would launch a 3-run homer off of Fairchild to make it a 4-1 advantage for the visitors.  And that is the score that would be seen on the scoreboard for much of the game until inning number nine.

The first two hitters drew walks off of Shane Armstrong, who relieved Fairchild in the sixth inning, followed by a fielder’s choice that put runners at the corners.  Mac Gridley would then strike out for the second out of the inning, but Chane Lynch was off running on the pitch that drew a throw from Chinooks catcher Mark Lindsay.  Lynch would get the stolen base allowing a run to come home for Anchorage.  The next batter would find open pasture on the right side of the infield allowing Lynch to come on home to make it a 6-1 lead for the Bucs.

In the bottom of the ninth innings, the Chinooks opened up the inning with a pair of walks by Billy Arendt and Josh Altmann.  They were able to work their way into scoring position, but Brandon Diaz of the Bucs slammed the door shut and finalized the victory for the Bucs.

Same two teams meet Saturday night in Anchorage.  First pitch is set for 7 pm AKDT.
