Goldpanners lose thrid straight

KENAI, AK-It seems like the Goldpanners haven't found in gold in the last couple of games. Last night the Goldpanners lost their third game in a row.

This one to the Kenai Peninsula Oilers 3-2, in the first game of a four game series. David Feltcher hit a two run single in the ninth to give Alaska a 2-1 lead. The Oilers chipped away with timely hits and benefited from an error for the final margin.

It's also the second straight loss by a single run for the Goldpanners. Alaska is now tied with the Mat-Su Miners for the ABL's top spot The Panners have a double header with the Oilers today.
