Outlaws stay hot, defeat Comanche 9-1 at home

DUNCAN — MARLOW — In their first meeting against Comanche earlier this season, the No. 3 Marlow Outlaws found themselves in an unexpected dogfight.

Apparently, MHS remembered very clearly and made sure history didn’t repeat itself as the Outlaws claimed a 9-1 victory in five innings Monday night at Stone-Black Field.

“Last time we played Comanche it was a 5-4 game, and we were fortunate to win,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “I told the guys we needed to finish the game quickly. We didn’t play our best game today, but getting some early runs helped put the game out of reach.”

It wasn’t until the third inning that Marlow took control of the game.

With a 3-1 advantage, Anthony Green made it 4-1 with an RBI single that found the mark down the first base line.

Following a sacrifice fly RBI by Austin Forsythe, Logan Knox then made it 6-1 with an RBI of his own.

Kelby Richardson then collected an RBI, when he reached on a throwing error to first base, allowing a run to score.

Seth Scarbrough then plated the eighth run for the Outlaws with an RBI single, before Richardson scored on the same play after another throwing error.

“Our boys always get up for a rivalry game like this,” Comanche coach Nick Reed said. “We were able to go up 1-0, but after that things fell apart for us. Jonathan Robinson threw a great game for us the whole way. We’ve got to have those ground ball outs and be able to make those throws. Those errors allowed them (Marlow) to get some more at-bats and that’s what started the downfall.”

Zach Young took the Outlaws by surprise in the top of the first when he converted a successful sacrifice fly RBI, scoring Kale Reed to give the Indians a 1-0 lead.

Richardson tied the game in the bottom half of the inning when he scored on a wild pitch, before MHS took the lead through an RBI from Wakely Bergner.

Green then slapped an RBI double to center field to put the Outlaws up 3-1.

Beau Meshell got the win on the mound for the Outlaws (22-4), throwing four innings of work. He allowed just one run on three hits with three strikeouts.

Jonathan Robinson was tagged with the loss for the Indians, throwing a complete game. He allowed nine runs on four hits with five walks and one strikeout.

Comanche will be back in action this afternoon against Empire with first pitch set for 4:30 from Bulldog Field.

Marlow will return to play on Thursday afternoon from Stone-Black Field when the Outlaws will meet Rush Springs with first pitch set for 5 p.m.

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.
