Marlow Outlaws slip past Duncan in summer finale

MARLOW — Friday night might have been the conclusion of the summer league baseball schedule, but Duncan and Marlow made it feel like a playoff atmosphere.

In a game which saw two quality pitching performances, it was ultimately a two-RBI double from MHS’ Trey Coffman that was the difference, as the Outlaws squeaked out a 3-2 victory over the Demons.

“Anytime you can win a 3-2 game, your not kicking it around too much and your pitching well,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “We were missing six starters today and had six freshman stepping up. We’re very fortunate to get a win like we did.”

With two outs in the bottom of the third, Coffman stepped up to the plate and hit a ground ball up the middle, which scored two runs and landed the senior on second, giving Marlow a 2-0 advantage.

“I just thought you had two pitchers throwing well, and two great teams showing a lot of defense,” Duncan coach Brian Keith said. “Both teams competed well out there. Marlow just happened to get the big timely hit with two outs. We came up a run short in the final inning, but this was a good atmosphere and a good summer game.”

Duncan was finally able to get on the board in the top of the fourth when Skyler Rodriguez converted a sacrifice fly RBI, allowing Mason Rogers to score, making it a 2-1 game.

However, the Outlaws remained one step ahead in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Kyle Seeley’s groundout allowed Brandon Green to score, giving the Outlaws back their two run cushion at 3-1.

DHS wasn’t quite through just yet as the Demons applied the pressure in the top of the seventh.

Thanks to another sacrifice fly RBI, this time from Collin Klingensmith, the Demons cut the lead to 3-2.

But, with two outs and two runners on base, MHS called upon Coffman to close out the game and give the Outlaws the victory.

Devin Crawford got the win on the mound for the Outlaws, throwing 6 1/3 innings of work, allowing two runs on eight hits with one strikeout and two walks.

Dylan Zawicki was tagged with the loss for the Demons, throwing a complete game. He allowed three runs on four hits with four walks and four strikeouts.
