The Oklahoma A’s, from Durant, drove eight hours Sunday to play 12 minutes of baseball.

The Enid Pilots’ scheduled doubleheader with the A’s at David Allen Memorial Ballpark was canceled due to rain in the bottom of the first inning, with the A’s leading 1-0. A previous rain delay set the game’s starting time back about 20 minutes.

After the final delay, Pilots coach Todd Hook made a call to move the game to Cimarron High School’s field, which was ultimately ruled unplayable.

Hook said he doubted the games would be made up. The two teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader at Durant July 14.

The Pilots (4-7) will travel to Oklahoma City Brassfield Tuesday and to the Oklahoma City Dusters Thursday.

The Pilots might have wished the rains would have come a little earlier.

Enid was swept by the Oklahoma City Dusters, 2-0 and 9-0 Saturday night in games which were hastily moved from Edmond because the Dusters’ field was too wet. The two teams agreed to switch home dates. The teams were to play at David Allen Memorial Ballpark Thursday.

Matt Peck, the Pilots’ first-game starter, was a hard-luck loser, allowing only five hits while striking out eight and walking one. The Dusters scored single runs in the second and third.

Enid managed only two hits — singles by Josh Moore and Zach Berg. Moore was stranded at third three times. Berg was stranded at second once.

In the second game, the Dusters broke the game open with a five-run sixth inning.

Enid starter Chris O’Brien took the loss, allowing two runs over four innings. He allowed five hits while striking out three and walking two.

The Pilots managed only five hits, including two by Thomas Willson. Enid is hitting .235 as a team.

“We’re just not swinging the bats like we’re capable of,’’ Hook said. “When that comes around, we should be in the middle of it. Our pitching has been as good, if not better, than anybody in the league.’’
