Outlaws split two games at Jones tourney

DUNCAN — It was easy to see the resilliance of the Marlow baseball team during its 14 game winning streak in March, and it was once again on display for the Outlaws at this weekend’s Jones Tournament.

After dropping its opener to No. 18 Bethel on Friday, the No. 3 Outlaws (16-4) bounced back with a complete effort in a win against tournament host Jones.

Bethel 4, Marlow 2

In its first game at the competition, Marlow stayed in a deadlock for six inning but a two run rally from the Wildcats in the top of the seventh ensured a win for Bethel.

Senior pitcher Wakley Bergner was once again dominant in the losing effort, lasting all seven innings and striking out ten. Unfortunately for Marlow, Bethel’s Hunter Heath was also up to the challenge, pitching a complete game of his own and allowing just two runs.

Marlow scored in the first and fifth inning off a sophomore third baseman Beau Meshell homerun and a run brought in by junior shortstop Trey Coffman. Neither team could gain an edge until the seventh, when Bethel had the last laugh against Bergner, securing the win with two runs.

Senior Kelby Richardson continued to lead the way for Marlow in the leadoff slot, batting 1-3 and scoring a run. Richardson owns a batting average greater than .400 on the season.

The loss continued a season-long trend for Marlow, whose only losses have come to Class 4A teams away from home.

Marlow 7, Jones 0

Bethel may have poked the hornet’s nest by handing the Outlaws a defeat, but it was Jones that paid for it.

Marlow raced out to a sizable lead after a seven run first inning and never looked back, shutting the Longhorns out and winning 7-0.

Richardson stayed hot in the team’s second game, driving in three runs on a first inning double. Runs batted in by  freshmen outfielder Anthony Green and infielder Kyle Seeley, Meshell and Bergner in the first also helped Marlow pull away for good.

The Outlaws pitching was strong as it was in its opener, but this time it was achieved by committee. Senior pitcher Tyler Brite kept the Longhorns at bay early, pitching three innings of three hit baseball with four strikeouts. The torch was then passed to Coffman, who struck out two in the fourth inning. Meshell would take Marlow the rest of the way, lasting three scoreless innings and striking out five.

Revenge will be on the Outlaws minds when it next plays at 4:30 p.m. Thursday against Tuttle, a team that beat Marlow 4-3 four weeks ago, at home.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
