Chinooks get no-hit as summer swoon continues
July has seen a disastrous run for the Chinooks of Chugiak-Eagle River, who went 2-8 to open the month as they slid to last place in the five-team Alaska Baseball League.
After winning four straight games near the end of June, the collegiate summer league team dropped 11 of 14 games to fall to 12-20 overall.
The most recent loss was a tough 1-0 decision at Mulcahy Stadium to the Anchorage Bucs, who got nine no-hit innings from starter Casey O’Sullivan and two no-hit relief innings from Adrian Mardueno in the victory. O’Sullivan struck out nine batters, but Mardueno was credited with the victory.
Upcoming home dates for the Chinooks include games July 16 against the Mat-Su Miners, July 17 against the Peninsula Oilers and July 19 against the Anchorage Bucs. All three games are at 7 p.m. at Lee Jordan Field in Chugiak.
The Chinooks will complete their season with a four-game homestand at Lee Jordan July 26-30.
