Strong pitching gives Marlow two road wins

DUNCAN — With each passing game, the Marlow baseball team becomes more and more dangerous.

The Outlaws (8-2) extended their winning streak to seven games, sweeping their first two contests at the Washington Spring Break Festival Thursday.

Marlow opened with an 8-1 win against Mangum and continued to roll with a 6-0 shutout of tournament host Washington.

“It comes down to us having more consistency,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “We’re pitching well and we’re having better at bats. I knew we could get on a roll once we got some wins and gained confidence.”

Marlow 8, Mangum 1

Facing the No. 17 Tigers, Marlow gave starting pitcher Tyler Brite all the insurance he needed and the team cruised to its sixth straight victory.

Marlow jumped ahead early with two runs in the second. It was all the scoring Brite would need.

Brite lasted five innings, allowing one earned one one three hits with three strikeouts to pick up his first win of the year.

“All I ask of my guys is to compete and we did that tonight,” Brewer said. “Our pitchers are stepping up and making the right throws every time we need them.”

The Outlaw bats weren’t satisfied, scoring two runs in the fourth, one in the fifth and sixth and two more in the seventh.

Brite helped himself as much as he could at the plate, going two for four with two runs scored and an RBI double.

Second baseman Seth Scarborough also provided the offense, scoring two runs and earning a walk in three at bats.

In relief of Brite, Beau Meshell kept the Tigers bats at bay, going two innings without allowing a hit or run with six strikeouts to close the door on Mangum.

The Marlow defense played its part in Brite’s and Meshell’s success at the mound, as Marlow didn’t allow a single error.

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.
