Chickasha escapes Marlow, 5-3

MARLOW — Anytime you have two state semifinalist teams collide, the game is bound to be a close one.

And so it was Thursday night at Stone-Black Field in Marlow as the Outlaws took on Class 5A state semifinalist Chickasha in summer league action.

In a tightly contested game, it was the Fightin’ Chicks managing to get the extra push in the top of the seventh with two runs to break a 3-3 tie and claim a 5-3 victory.

“The middle of our order is hitting the ball pretty well, with the exception of a few pressure situations,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “We’re going to try and be as close to fundamentally sound as possible, but errors are going to happen unfortunately. As long as we’re getting better and learning from mistakes, then that’s all that matters. If games like this help us win a championship next year, then I’ll take it now rather than later.”

One of the pressure situations for the Outlaws came in the bottom of the seventh inning, when MHS had two runners on base with no outs.

Unfortunately, Chickasha pitcher Brayden Belden shut the door as he forced the Outlaws into two strikeouts and one groundout to end the threat and the game.

Brock Henderson gave CHS a 4-3 lead in the seventh with an RBI single before Luke Dixon scored on a walk to make it 5-3 in favor of the Fightin’ Chicks.

Trey Coffman’s dribbler down the third base line gave the Outlaws a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, when Kelby Richardson scored.

It was 2-0 Outlaws in the second when Preston Nunley crossed the plate after a miscue by CHS following a strikeout by Kyle Seeley.

Chickasha cut the lead in half in the top of the third when Luke Dixon collected an RBI single, before Marlow came back in the bottom of the fourth inning as Seeley hit a sharp line drive into the outfield for an RBI single.

Mario Medina took advantage of a throwing error in the top of the fifth to make it 3-2, before the Fightin’ Chicks finally tied the game in the top of the sixth thanks to an RBI double by Brandon Shumway.

Beldon got the win for the Chickasha on the mound, throwing two innings of work, allowing just one hit with three strikeouts.

Trey Coffman took the loss for the Outlaws, throwing 2/3 of an inning, allowing the go-ahead runs with one hit and one strikeout.
