Miners Have the ‘Nooks Number Again

Box Score PALMER – For the third straight ball game, the Matsu Miners found the win column Tuesday night with a 10-4 win over the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks at Herman Brothers Field.

A parade of extra-base hits in the early innings and a pair of home runs off Miners lumber ultimately did the Chinooks in.  Matt Decker doubled to left-center field to break a 1-1 tie in the third inning.

The Miners would not look back from there.  Nick Senzel would knock in Decker two batters later to make it a 3-1 game, and Nick Blaser would single home Senzel to score the fourth run of the game for Matsu.

The Chinooks would make a serious threat in the fifth inning when they loaded the bases against Miners starting pitcher, Kyle Serrano.  Jackson Cramer would walk in a run and would be the last batter before the Miners opted to bring in Ryan Oglesby in relief.  His first opponent would be Kyle Conkle, who would be hit by the first pitch to bring in a second run and making it a 4-3 game in favor of the Miners.

Michael Fairchild took the mound to start the game for the Chinooks and allowed the first four runs on seven base hits.  Shane Armstrong would follow with two scoreless innings and allowed one run in the sixth frame.  Jordan Rodgers singled to center bringing in Senzel who slid behind the tag at home on a ball thrown from Chinook center fielder, Steve Pollex.

In the seventh inning, Cameron Newell would launch a solo home run, his second in as many games against the Chinooks.  The score would become 8-3 just a few batters later when Senzel would hit a run-run blast, accumulating his third of three hits on the night.

Two more runs would come home for Matsu in the eighth inning with a tuple from Cameron Frost to drive in Rodgers followed by a Newell single.  Newell would record his sixth multi-hit game and better his second best batting average in the Alaska Baseball League.

The Chinooks would load the bases again in the ninth inning with a hit-by-pitch, walk, and a single by Steve Karkenny.  Cramer would groundout to bring a run home, but the Chinooks late rally would fall short with a 10-4 final score.

Fairchild took the loss for the Chinooks as the team falls to 4-9 overall on the 2014 season.  The win would be rewarded to Oglesby for his first win of the season with an inning and a third in scoreless relief for the Miners, who remain in first place in the National League of the ABL at 10-4.

Chugiak’s Loretta French Park will be the location of the next contest for the Chinooks.  After an off day on Wednesday, the Chinooks will play a doubleheader on Thursday with the Anchorage Glacier Pilots to make up Tuesday’s rain out.  The first game gets underway at 4 pm.
