Conor Spink of Eagle River has struggled to get on track with his new team, but lately the left-handed relief pitcher has looked good.

He hadn’t allowed a run in his last six appearances stretching four innings with the Winnipeg Goldeyes until recently, but then he got right back to having a clean sheet.

Spink, of Chugiak High fame, got two outs in working the 12th inning as Winnipeg beat Gary 2-1 in 15 innings.

This is his fifth season in the American Association, an independent professional baseball league.

Spink played his first four seasons with the Lincoln Saltdogs before being traded to the Goldeyes.

He has pitched in 157 career pro games, carving out a 3.98 ERA.

Spink is currently one of only two Alaskans playing pro baseball this season.
