Sunday’s game between the Peninsula Oilers and the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks was postponed to July 28 at 4 p.m. at Seymour Park due to rain.

The Oilers now have today and Tuesday off before heading on the road until July 18, when they return home to face the Anchorage Bucs at Seymour Park at 7 p.m.

This is the second straight home series that ended with a rainout for the Oilers. The squad also was rained out June 26 against the Anchorage Glacier Pilots. The rainouts and regularly scheduled breaks have left the Oilers with a big lull in their schedule. By the time the squad plays Wednesday, they will have played just twice in the last nine days.

The Oilers and Chinooks split the first two games of the series, leaving the Oilers at 7-12 in the Alaska Baseball League, tied with the Pilots for last place and the final spot in the Top of the World Series.

The Oilers and Pilots are 6.5 games behind the league-leading Mat-Su Miners at 15-7. The Bucs are 1.5 games back at 14-9, while the Chinooks sit at 9-12, 5.5 games back.
