Cooper Irinaga and Bailey Layral drove in runs and Shawn Conwell pitched a clean inning for the Legion camp all-stars during a 9-3 exhibition loss to the Fairbanks Goldpanners at Growden Park.
The Goldpanners banged out 12 hits and got six strong innings from pitcher Jake Taylor, who also had an RBI.
The game was a culmination of the two-day College Coaches Camp in Fairbanks, featuring players from North Pole Post 30 Wild and the Fairbanks Post 11 49ers.
Hunter Clements led the Legion all-stars with a 3-for-4 effort. Irinaga and Layral had RBIs to fuel a two-run frame in the sixth inning.
Taylor scattered seven hits and three runs while striking out 10.
Conwell started for the Legion all-stars and pitched a scoreless first inning. Reliever Chris Luskleet took the loss.
Among the Panners with base hits were former Legion players Alex Garcia and Alex Troppman.
The annual Midnight Sun Tournament begins late tonight, with the Wild hosting the 49ers at 12:05 a.m. at Arco Field.
