ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Peninsula Oilers will enter the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kansas as champions of the Alaska Baseball League for the first time in five years. Kenai scored the last six runs in game one of a doubleheader to beat the Athletes in Action Fire, 10-4 to improve to 21 and 12 in ABL play, good for the necessary daylight between themselves and second place Mat-Su.
The Miners also won on Friday, sending the Anchorage Bucs to their sixth consecutive loss, 5-0. Mark Anderson pitched a complete game for Mat-Su. The Miners raise their record to 19 and 15, but not enough to catch the Oilers with only two games left for both teams.
