Outlaws’ 14-game streak snapped at Blanchard

DUNCAN — It took a familiar kind of foe to hand the Marlow baseball team something it hadn’t received in the last 24 days and  14 games: a loss.

The Outlaws (15-3) saw their winning streak come to a close, suffering its third road defeat to a Class 4A opponent this season Monday in a 7-4 loss at No. 8 Blanchard.

“We didn’t necessarily play bad, just made a few blunders and good teams in the top eight of Class 4A are going to beat you when you do that,” Outlaws coach Jeff Brewer said.

Despite a three-run rally in the sixth inning, the Outlaws paid for three unearned runs allowed to the Lions (12-4) and could not complete the comeback. Marlow trailed by just one when they made it 5-4 in the sixth, but the Lions struck back immediately, stretching the lead to three with two runs in the inning’s bottom half.

Junior pitcher Trey Coffman was handed the loss on the mound, allowing six runs on six hits while walking five. Blanchard flexed its muscles at the plate, blasting two home runs against Coffman in the win.

The Outlaws lineup put plenty of runners on base with seven different batters getting hits. Although junior centerfielder Kelby Richardson senior first baseman Tyler Brite, junior second baseman Seth Scarbrough and Coffman all finished with steals, Blanchard’s Olivier kept them in check, allowing just one earned run in four innings of work to secure the win.

Each team struggled in the field, with the Outlaws and Tigers each finishing with three errors. The Outlaws had committed just two errors in its previous three games.

Along with getting the final two outs in the bottom half of the sixth inning, senior Wakley Bergner was a bright spot at the plate, driving in the team’s lone RBI.

Following a road loss to Tuttle in early March, the Outlaws had been on fire during its 14-game winning streak, scoring at least five runs in every contest and surrendering four runs or less in every game but one.

The Outlaws have experienced most of their most troubles on the road, with its only losses coming away from home to the Tigers, Elgin and the Lions on Monday. All three foes compete in Class 4A.

Marlow will be back in action Thursday when it competes at the Jones Tournament.
