Pilots Sweep Rainy Twin Bill over ‘Nooks

Box Score 1 Box Score 2 CHUGIAK – The Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks were swept by the Anchorage Glacier Pilots in a cold doubleheader on Thursday, falling 3-2 in the opener and 4-2 in the nightcap. The Pilots now own the season series between the two clubs, taking four of 2014’s six meetings against the Chinooks.

The first game was rescheduled after being rained out on Monday before being forced back another hour so the Chinooks could prepare Loretta French Field for game action. On a night when Chugiak High School celebrated their 50th anniversary at the park, the two teams played two seven-inning ballgames that provided another pair of close contests.

In one of the lowest scoring games of the year, North Alabama’s Kyle Conkle and Boston College’s Geoff Murphy each found a pair of base hits, while Steven Karkenny (The Master’s) was credited with the team’s only RBI. Trevor Podratz, Chester Pak, and Clayton Taylor each provided a hit for the visiting Glacier Pilots, but that proved to be enough offense to back the pitching staff.

On the hill, Anchorage turned to Drew Morovick lasted five innings, surrendering five base hits and two runs while issuing four walks and striking out two in his first victory of the summer. Fred Schlictholtz hurled a flawless sixth before Justin Dellinger closed the door in the seventh to pick up his first save of the ABL.

For the Chinooks, Dan Przenicny (Xavier) pitched 5.1 innings of one-hit baseball while allowing one earned run before giving way to the bullpen. Lance Phillips (Arkansas) recorded the final five outs, allowing two hits and fanning a pair.

The Fish got on the scoreboard first in Game Two, but the Pilots responded with a run in the third and another in the fourth. Chugiak-Eagle River managed to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth, but it was short lived, as Anchorage plated the game’s final two runs in the final frame.

Steve Pollex sparked two base hits and now has hit safely in ten of his last eleven games, but just two other Chinooks were able reach first base safely. Jonathan Papodics (The Master’s) and Bret Collins (Vanguard) combined with Pollex to do all the damage in the nightcap, but the Fish still kept the game close.

Pak and Podratz again did the damage for the Pilots, combining for four base hits, an RBI and a run scored. Shaun Wood hauled in the final hit of the game for the visitors, and Anchorage held on for their second victory of the day.

Glacier Pilot starter Cameron Blanchard allowed five runs over his five innings before reliever Grant Gunning allowed two runs while recording just two outs. Dellinger came on in the bottom of the sixth when the Chinooks had the go-ahead run in scoring position, but he managed to wiggle his way out of the jam. When his offense got him two runs an inning later, Dellinger then became eligible for his first victory.

Cornerstone’s Ryan Harris received the starting nod for the Chinooks, hurling three innings and surrendering a lone unearned run. Shane Armstrong (Hillsdale) and Thomas Altimont (Abilene Christian) combined for the next three innings, allowing one run and issuing a total four strikeouts.

Zach Freeman (New Mexico State) was on the wrong end of the decision for the third time this year after surrendering two runs in the seventh. The Chinooks went down in order in the bottom half of the inning, giving Dellinger his first win just a few hours after picking up his first save.

The Chinooks will now turn their attention to the Mat-Su Miners, who will come calling on Friday and Saturday. Both games are slated for 7:00 pm start times from Loretta French Field.
