Marlow baseball falls to Tigers at home

MARLOW — Summer baseball is all  getting better, and Marlow had an ideal opponent to help it improve Tuesday – one of the five teams it fell to last season.

In its final contest before this week’s five-day Zorian Wood Bat Tournament, the Outlaws were doomed by their own mistakes in a back and forth 7-4 loss to the Tuttle Tigers at Stone-Black Field.

“We have a lot of young players competing now, but they’re doing well,” Outlaws coach Jeff Brewer said. “No excuses, we expect to win every time we go out on the field, but this time of year is a growing process for us.”

Tuttle wasted no time drawing first blood, scoring in the first inning to take a one run lead. Marlow responded immediately when Kelby Richardson scored from third base during a pickoff attempt.

After each team failed to score in the second, Tuttle reclaimed the lead in the top of the third with a sacrifice fly to deep right field.

Once again, the Tigers lead would not last for long, as Richardson and Trey Coffman each drove in a run with a pair of doubles.

Tuttle tied things up with another sacrifice fly in the fourth and did its most damage with three runs in the top of the fifth.

With two Tigers runners on base, Marlow committed two errors on one play – a dropped ball in left field and an overthrow at second, that allowed the Tuttle batter to score those runners and come all the way home.

“Like I told them. those are mistakes we don’t want to make, but we learned from it,” Brewer said. “With baseball, you never know which situations are going to arise, and these games are great because those situations are impossible to experience in practice.”

Marlow made a late push in the seventh when Anthony Green scored on an error, but it would not be enough, as the Tigers secured the win with a fielder’s choice at second base one batter later.

Junior Brady Melton took the loss for Marlow, allowing three earned runs in five innings of work with three strikeouts and five walks.

Missing from the Outlaws lineup were 2013 starters Beau Meshell and Seth Scarbrough.

Marlow will return to the diamond today when it begins play in the woodbat tournament in Oklahoma City.

“Looking ahead, we’re going to be disciplined, we’re going to be structured and we’re going to be sound,” Brewer said. “All I ask of these guys is that they continue to play hard.”
