Outlaws try to extend winning streak to six

DUNCAN — While many spend their spring break traveling, the Marlow baseball team has a business trip of its own Thursday afternoon.

The No. 6 Outlaws will try to continue its winning ways when it competes in the Washington Spring Break Festival.

Festival host Washington will serve as Marlow’s first opponent before the team finishes the day against No. 17 Mangum.

Since starting the season 1-2, the team has caught fire, winning five straight games.

Head coach Jeff Brewer called the team’s last loss, a 4-3 defeat to Tuttle, a “turning point’ and the team has responded by outscoring its opponents by 39 runs during its winning streak.

A big part of the streak has been the Marlow offense, averaging 10 runs per game in its last five wins.

On the mound, the Outlaws have relied on their ace Wakely Bergner, who has opened the year with three straight wins.

In its most recent games last Saturday, Marlow beat Ardmore and Plainview by a combined total of 27-10.

The Outlaws had no trouble disposing of its Class 5A opponent Ardmore, outscoring the Tigers 10-3 in the last three innings. Beau Meshell secured the win, pitching for 3 and 1/3 innings

It was more of the same against Plainview, as Marlow scored five runs in the second to pull ahead en route to a 12-6 victory.

Marlow will face another team whose bats have caught fire in the festival’s first game, as Washington is coming off two straight 10-run wins against Wynnewood and Wayne. The Warriors have defended their turf well so far this year, winning two of their three games at home.

The Outlaws share something in common with the team it faces later in the day, Mangum. Each teams have played against Cache, with the Outlaws earning a comeback 9-4 win against them and Mangum splitting its two games with them last week.

Play against Washington is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. and the Outlaws’ game against Mangum is slated for 5 p.m.

Poll

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.
