FAIRBANKS-Last night the Alaska Wild and Fairbanks 49ers clashed on Arco Field for an American Legion baseball game. This was a league game and it was a lot different from Monday's 11-0 win for the Wild.

There were five lead changes in this one but the Wild got two crucial unearned runs in the bottom of the 6th and win this game 6-3 in 7 innings.

Mike Fitzpatrick led the Wild with two hits, an rbi and a run scored. Terrell Ford got the save for the Wild.

The Wild are now 5-7 and 7-9 overall. They will host Wasilla this Saturday in a double header at Arco Field.
