Miners shut out Chinooks in 1-0 contest

The Mat-Su Miners shut out the Chinooks for the second time in a row to- night in a hard-fought 1-0 game at Hermon Brothers Field in Palmer. Eli Mor- gan, a right-hander from Gonzaga University, got the win. It was a tough loss for Grant Page who also pitched well. Page was tagged for five hits, walked one, hit one and was charged with a balk that did no damage.

Mat-Su’s run came in the fourth with one out. Shortstop Tyler Wolfe sin- gled, moved to second on catcher Zack Plunkett’s single, then scored when a sure out turned into a fluke RBI when the grounder hit second base and took a sidewise ricochet. The Chinooks continued their habit of getting the leadoff bat- ter out in every inning except one.

The Chinooks again had two runners reach third base only to be stranded there. The left-on-base line, in fact, shows that five Fish were on base when the third out was recorded. Had there been a replay possible in this league, one call might have been overturned. Jacob Brobst was called out at second in which Chinooks fans thought he made it in safely but was called out, his otherwise double turned into an out and recorded as a futile single. Cadon Owens, the next hitter, walked, stole second and made it to third on the catcher’s error. Had Brobst been on second, he likely would have scored when the attempt to get Brobst sailed into centerfield.

The Chinooks return home tomorrow to host the Glacier Pilots and on Sun- day and Monday will entertain the Miners in an effort to tighten up the race for first place in the division. On Thursday, they finally get a well-deserved day off after the stretch of 11 straight games.

A four-day road trip begins on July 3 when the Chinooks go to Mulcahy Sta- dium to visit the Anchorage Glacier Pilots and then head to Kenai for a three- day, three-game series with the Peninsula Oilers. On July 7 they return home to host the Pilots that evening and the Fairbanks Goldpanners on July 8.

In Saturday’s game, the teams will commemorate Cancer Awareness Night. A treadmill will be set up where a runner will clock mileage throughout the game to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer. Fans will be asked to print the name of someone who is battling or who has survived cancer on a paper and at the top of the fifth inning will be asked to hold up the signs.

The annual Military Appreciation Game will be held Sunday, the game starting at 4 p.m. The first 400 fans will be
given coupons for free hot dogs provided by the Chugiak-Eagle River legislative delegation. Veterans

from World War II and subsequent conflicts will line the field with the players for the playing of the Nation- al Anthem. Fans are encouraged to come out to show their appreciation for those who defend our freedom. It is always a popular patriotic occasion.
