FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Goldpanners are off to a hot start in the 2019 season after they took down the San Diego Waves in Game 7.
Cole Carder knocked in the go-ahead home run to lead the Panners to an 8-3 victory​
Carder's homer came in the bottom of the 8th inning, as Alaska scored three to pull away from the Waves.​
Blake Porter led the offense with 1 run, 3 hits and 2 RBIs, while Jacob Fricke led from the mound with 7 strikeouts and only gave up 3 runs.​
The Panners won the series 5-2 thanks to the some walk-offs and timely defense.​
On the defensive end, Issac Olson faced a bases loaded situation, and literally took care it in short work.​
"Yeah so that was kind of a tough situation, they got a couple hits, bases loaded and they ended up smoking one pretty good to me. I was able to get it, and I knew that I had everyone at their bases and I decided to get the out at first and get to two outs and we were able to get out of the jam was huge. Yeah I heard it's a blast, the game and I heard everyone comes out to it. I'm really excited about it for it and can't wait for it to happen,"​ said Olson.
The Panners now prepare for their four game series against the Seattle Studs tomorrow night.
