Outlaws enact revenge on Tuttle with base on balls in seventh

MARLOW — A game winning walk may lack the drama of a walk off hit, but the Marlow baseball team couldn’t have cared less Tuesday.

It took seven full innings of back and forth baseball, but the Outlaws (17-4) enacted the revenge it had seeked for a month on Tuttle with a 4-3 win.

The game came down to the final out, when sophomore third baseman Beau Meshell brought home senior Trey Coffman with a game winning, bases loaded walk.

“We pieced together some hits on some errors they made and stayed aggressive...it’s a big win for us,” Outlaws coach Jeff Brewer said. “We stayed on the grind, played hard and were fortunate to get the win.”

The close nature of the contest was nothing new to either team, as the No. 3 Tigers (18-6) had beaten the Outlaws by the same score in Tuttle last month.

Once again, senior pitcher Wakley Bergner was the difference for Marlow, as he turned in a complete game effort with three earned runs and four strikeouts.

“Wakley set the tone on the mound in this game,” Brewer said. “His changeup was working tonight and he kept us in the game.”

Each team kept its opponent in check during an uneventful first inning before Tuttle made the first move in the second. After the wind helped create a Tuttle single in right field on a pop fly, the Tigers moved the runner with a bunt single and brought in the first run with a groundout to second base.

The Tigers added to their lead in the third inning on an RBI single to center, but it didn’t take Marlow long to respond.

In the fourth, seniors Trey Coffman and Bergner reached base after being hit by pitches and junior Anthony Green loaded the bases with a walk. With Meshell at the plate, an overthrow on a pickoff sent to first base gave Marlow its first two runs, with Coffman coming home from third and Bergner from second. With all the momentum by Marlow’s side, senior left fielder Logan Knox delivered the team’s first lead with line single to shallow right field.

Tuttle reclaimed that momentum almost right away, escaping the fourth with the bases loaded and tying the game back up in the fifth with an RBI single to center.

Bergner got help from a diving centerfield catch from senior Kelby Richardson and a double play turned by freshman second baseman Kyle Seeley and the Outlaws got its chance to put Tuttle away for good in the game’s final frame.

They wouldn’t let the chance pass them by.

Coffman led off with a double off the right field wall and three walks later, the Outlaws had themselves their second straight win.

“I told him (Meshell) when the count was 3-1 that there was more pressure on the pitcher than there is on you,” Brewer said. “Make him throw two strikes. Force the issue on them, they’ve got more pressure on them and we’re at home, and we pushed it across.”

The Outlaws will try to make it three in a row when they compete at the Kingfisher/Piedmont Tournament this weekend.
