For the third time in four nights, the Anchorage Glacier Pilots have won a home game on their final swing of the bat.
Axel Johnson, out of TCU, delivered a pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning to beat the Anchorage Bucs on Thursday night, 7-6.
The win also marked their third over the rival Bucs in the teams' four-game series.
Late inning heroics have become a trend for the Pilots. On Monday, Johnson's TCU teammate Kevin Cornelius clubbed a game-ending homer in the 13th inning to knock off the Peninsula Oilers, 1-0. And in Tuesday's second game of a doubleheader, Jordan Luplow singled home the winning run in the bottom of the final inning.
The win gives the Pilots an ABL-leading record of 11 and 7. They move one game ahead of the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks, who lost to the Oilers on Thursday, 9-5.
In Thursday's other league game, the Miners downed the Goldpanners, 9-6.
