Sky rains drops, AIA rains losses on Oilers

Posted: Sunday, July 22, 2001

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes, it rains.

The Peninsula Oilers missed out on a chance to do either of the former two Saturday as the latter canceled their scheduled doubleheader against Athletes in Action Alaska at Coral Seymour Memorial Park.

The games will not be made up as AIA was scheduled to travel to Anchorage to face the Glacier Pilots today and will not be participating in the Anchorage Bucs Wood Bat Tournament at the conclusion of the Alaska Basebast five regular-season games.

"I don't like rain-outs. It's better to play every day," said Oilers' Trey Hendricks. "I guess it's nice for some guys to have a day off, but personally, I like to play every day."

Hendricks said the team has kept an upbeat attitude despite the Oilers' 9-19 mark in the ABL and 16-23 overall record.

"Everybody's staying positive," Hendricks said. "We're blessed to be up here playing baseball in Alaska. Things aren't going our way right now, but we're still having a great time."

The Oilers have two series left on their regular-season schedule. The Anchorage Bucs will be in town for games today (2 p.m. at Coral Seymour Memorial Park, 1140 KSLD) and Monday (7 p.m.).

The Oilers will host the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks in final series of the season starting Wednesday, then it's on to the Wood Bat Tournament at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.

"I'd like to win the Bucs Tournament at the end," Hendricks said. "We're done after the Bucs Tournament. That's the last time this team will play together, and it would be nice to win it."

In the meantime, the Oilers will have opportunities against the Bucs and the Panners. Entering Saturday's play, the Bucs were tied with the Mat-Su Miners for second place in the ABL, five games behind the first-place Glacier Pilots.

The Goldpanners were seven games out of first, but just two games out of second place. The ABL sends the top two teams to the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, Kan., at the end of the summer season.

"I'd love to play the spoiler," Hendricks said. "Not so much the spoiler, but just finishing strong. We're going to make them work for the right to represent Alaska at the NBC."
