Outlaws prepare for regional draw

MARLOW — On Monday No. 4 Marlow baseball finds out its destiny for the Class 3A regional playoffs.

In preparation, the Outlaws (24-10) traveled to Class 4A No. 1 Tuttle on their off day after earning a bye in the district round.

With a 3-2 loss Marlow proved, once again, it can play against the toughest teams in the state. Coach Jeff Brewer said all these close finishes will help the Outlaws in the playoffs.

“Eventually we’re going to beat someone who we aren’t supposed to,” Brewer said. “Hopefully that will be in the regional tournament or the state tournament.”

The Outlaws should be able to host regionals because of their top-eight ranking. Sulphur, Davis and Marietta are a few possible opponents for the double-elimination tournament that starts on Thursday.

While playing its opponents tough is nice, Marlow needs wins from now on to reach its goal of a state title.

“We’ve given those teams runs and had them on the ropes,” Brewer said. “We’re a confident group. You get some things going your way and you beat some teams you’re not supposed to beat, you’ll be dangerous. We know we can go win this thing in 3A.”

Brewer wants to see his team continue what its doing, especially on the mound. He planned to throw a couple of pitchers versus Tuttle and said they each performed admirably.

Senior Trey Coffman, the team’s ace, started off the game by allowing one run in three innings. Sophomore Brady Melton followed that up with three innings of his own, allowing just one run as well. Junior Beau Meshell closed the game out for the Outlaws. The game ended with one of his curveballs being blooped into leftfield with a runner on second.

It was disappointing to pick up the loss, but Meshell said he thought the team played well.

“We’ve played teams that are better than the teams we will play at state,” Meshell said. “We’ve got to score a lot of runs early.”

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.
