Midwest Collegiate League
HOMEWOOD | Needing a win to force a third and deciding game for the Midwest Collegiate League title, the Northwest Indiana Oilmen needed a dominant pitching performance on Sunday night.
Last summer, the upstart Northwest Indiana Oilmen experienced unprecedented success in the organization's first year of existence.
WHITING | As far as rivalries go in the Midwest Collegiate League, it doesn't get much bigger than the Northwest Indiana Oilmen and Southland Vikings.
WHITING | Throughout this summer, one of the biggest keys to the success of the Northwest Indiana Oilmen have been the bullpen.
WHITING | The top of the seventh inning went from bad to worse to a total disaster for the Northwest Indiana Oilmen on Friday.
During high school, the accolades poured in for Andrew Lowe. The newspaper clippings were abundant, and serve as reminders of a stellar four years at Whiting High School.
WHITING | Scouts from the White Sox, Phillies, Yankees and Rangers watched Tuesday's Midwest Collegiate League All-Star game at Oil City Stadium, and there was certainly no shortage of local talent to be evaluated.
WHITING | Bill Palmer stood on the pitcher's mound at Oil City Stadium with more than 1,000 fans' eyes focused squarely on him.
WHITING | For Joe Houlihan, patriotism runs in the family. The red, white and blue colors of the United States flag are always close to his heart.
Throughout his baseball career, Craig Austgen has earned his keep by being a jack-of-all-trades kind of player, a utility man who can be plugged in at almost any position on the baseball field.
MICHIGAN CITY | With a five-run lead before he even stepped on the mound, Hanover Central grad Andy Wellwerts could afford a couple mistakes.
FLOSSMOOR | As one of the best pitchers in Indiana during his high school career, recent Bishop Noll grad Danny Pobereyko is getting an advantage in preparation not many other pitchers can say they've experienced.
WHITING | Kenny Mahala spent last summer playing for the now-defunct Illinois Lincolns, keeping his game sharp during the college offseason.
WHITING | As the ace of the Oilmen pitching staff last summer, it's obvious the team is expecting big things from Crown Point grad Josh Negele again this season.
Cody Dykema and the rest of the Northwest Indiana Oilmen have a lot to live up to this season due to their success in 2012.
WHITING | Bennett Oliver is familiar with the delivery of submarine pitchers as a player for Purdue University, so facing off against Chicago Zephyrs pitcher Kyle Renaud didn't fool the Oilmen No. 3 hitter.
FLOSSMOOR | Getting the bats going early has been a problem for the Northwest Indiana Oilmen at some points during this season.
WHITING | With the Northwest Indiana Oilmen losing eight of their last nine games going into Thursday night, ending the five-game homestand on a positive note was a top priority for Chris Rudenga and the rest of the team.
WHITING | After gunning for their fourth comeback win this season, the magic finally ran out on the Northwest Indiana Oilmen Friday night.
WHITING | The Northwest Indiana Oilmen provided the electricity at Oil City Stadium that Mother Nature thankfully kept away Saturday night.
