Pilots 8, Bucs 6

The Glacier Pilots worked relief pitcher Trevor Renfro for a leadoff double and four walks in the ninth inning Tuesday to break a tie and grab an 8-6 win over the Bucs, who slipped into second place in the ABL standings.

With the game tied 5-5, Micah Green touched Renfro for a double. Renfro retired the next two batters but then walked four in a row, with the last two free passes driving in runs. That brought in Calvin Copping who gave up an RBI single to John Riley before getting the final out.

The Bucs struck for one run in the bottom of the inning.

Goldpanners 7, Chinooks 4

Scott Tomassetti and Alex Rubanowitz delivered consecutive big hits Tuesday to power the Goldpanners past the Chinooks 7-4.

With the win, Fairbanks claimed sole possession of the league lead, half a game ahead of the Bucs.

Miners, Oilers split

The Miners and Oilers each put together a big inning Tuesday to earn a split of a doubleheader at Hermon Brothers Field in Palmer.

In Mat-Su's 7-1 win, Nick LaFace stroked a bases-loaded triple to spark a six-run second inning for the Miners. The hit was part of a big game for LaFace, who was 2 for 2 and scored twice.

In the Oilers' 6-4 win, Andre Mercurio belted a two-run double to highlight Peninsula's five-run fourth inning.
