Miners Hold On for 10-7 Victory in Mat-Su

Box Score PALMER – The Chugiak Eagle-River Chinooks (0-2) dropped their second consecutive game at the hands of the Mat-Su Miners (2-0) on Monday evening by a final score of 10-7. The Miners and Chinooks are now halfway through their opening non-league series before picking up regular action later in the week.

The Chinooks struck first, but the Miners stormed back with a four-run second inning before adding a pair of runs in the fourth and two more an inning later. The sixth and seventh frames each saw the home team tack on another insurance run, but Chugiak-Eagle River cut into the lead a bit with a run in the eighth.

The ninth inning proved to be eerily similar to yesterday’s final inning, as the visitors scored five runs in the top of the final inning. The threat ended with a hard hit double play, but the Chinooks certainly made a game of it before ultimately falling by three runs.

Individually, North Alabama’s Kyle Conkle rebounded from a rough Sunday with a three hit, two RBI contest on Monday. James Nevant and Griffith Roark each laced a pair of base hits, while Jackson Cramer and Mark Lindsay helped give the team a total of nine base knocks.

Jordan Rodgers and Brandon Smith highlighted the effort for Mat-Su, as they combined for six hits in eight at-bats.  Four other Miner hitters contributed a multi-hit game, giving the team just enough runs to defeat Chugiak-Eagle River for the second time in as many days.

Dan Przeniczny was hit with the loss on the mound for the visiting Chinooks after allowing four unearned runs on five hits while striking out three through two innings. Ryan Harris was the first man out of the bullpen for the guests, surrendering four runs on four hits in his three frames on the hill. The final Chinook pitcher of the night was Steven Wagar, who gave up a pair of runs over the final three innings.

Ryan Hendrix received the starting nod for Mat-Su but did not qualify for the win after permitting just one run over the game’s first three innings. Henry Rodriguez came in behind him and picked up his first win of the year after three flawless frames. Vince Arobio surrendered his lone run in the top of the eighth, while Spencer Jack was on the wrong end of the Chinooks’ big ninth.

Jack was able to finally escape the final inning with the lead intact, and the Miners took the second of a four-game series 10-7. The Chinooks and Miners return to action on Tuesday at Loretta French Field, where first pitch is slated for 7:00 pm.
