ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Patrick Wisdom of the Peninsula Oilers and Adam Martin of the Mat-Su Miners continued their home run derby in regular season play on Monday.
One day after Martin defeated Wisdom in the finals of the ABL's first home run derby contest on All-Star Sunday, both players belted homers to help their teams to victory.
Wisdom connected for his league-leading fourth homer of ABL action in the Oilers 8-4 victory over the Pilots. The win gives Kenai a 16 and 7 ABL record, good for a four game lead over the Anchorage Bucs.
Martin's two-run shot in the sixth inning gave the Miners a lead they would not relinquish in their home game against the Bucs. Mat-Su broke a six-game losing streak in its 5-3 win to improve to 13 and 13 in league.
