June 24, 2012 – Alaska Goldpanners vs. Fairbanks Goldpanners (G2)
MIDNIGHT SUN GOLDPANNERS
7:00 PM – GROWDEN MEMORIAL PARK; BROADCAST LASTED FROM 3PM-9PM
UPDATE: The Alaska Goldpanners defeated the Fairbanks Goldpanners 7-0, winning the series at 2-0. Yet again, the game was close for most of the game due to the Fairbanks starting pitcher. Yesterday, it was Christoph Falke; today it was Fairbanks starter Steve Shaver who provided an effective pitching performance… having a great deal of fun with his command.
By the way, Christoph Falke accomplished a rare feat on Saturday with his start for the Midnight Sun Goldpanners. He became the third player in history to start a game for the organization while a sitting member of the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks board of directors. The other two are Emmitt Wilson and Sean Timmons.
A number of items came into clearer focus for the Alaska Goldpanners during this series. Matt's Nadolski's role in the field is very promising. Allowing a pitcher this much time to develop their offensive skills harkens back to the many times this approach has worked in the past for Jim Dietz and his assistant coaches.
The Alaska Goldpanners' pitching selections for the Fairbanks series were our two outstanding prep prospects out of Oregon. Lots of speed, lots of energy. Hope to see them pitch in Wichita this year, even though it wouldn't be with the Goldpanners. That is, unless we can warm the Fairbanks community to the idea.

Eighty pictures is enough for our last post, so I'm splitting up the pictures. Also, these pictures tell a different story than the pre-game shots. For the second year in a row, the Midnight Sun Goldpanners played the Alaska Goldpanners tough right out of the gate.
In fact, the game was tied at one until the bottom of the fifth, thanks for dazzling pitching by Christoph Falke (94-96-12). Falke threw everything in the book at the varsity Panners. He mixed knucklers in with more traditional pitches -- all the while displaying solid pitch placement.
On the offensive side, discipline at the plate led to many base runners for the junior squad. Timely hitting by Adam Cornachionne brought in a run to tie the game at one in the fourth. At one point, the Midnight Sun Goldpanners had more hits than the Alaska Goldpanners.
Anyway, it was very good baseball.. with a higher level of intensity and sportsmanship than is often seen in such mis-matches. Make no mistake, however - the Midnight Sun Goldpanners believe they can beat the Alaska Goldpanners.
Come to the park at 7pm to see what happens.. or you can watch live on PannerVision! Broadcast day start should be in early afternoon. Details will be posted to this location.
