Marlow defeats Jones, takes 3A regional title

MARLOW — One year ago, the Marlow Outlaws baseball team suffered the ultimate heartbreak at the hands of the Jones Longhorns.

Saturday afternoon at Stone-Black Field, MHS returned the favor and then some.

A five-run fifth inning put the Outlaws over the top, giving them a 13-3 run rule victory and a second consecutive regional championship.

“This is a testament to what the kids have done throughout the year,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “We play as a team and give God the glory in everything we do. I challenged our guys to get five runs in order to save innings for us in preparation for state, and we did that. We’re going to be prepared no matter the situation.”

Logan Knox played hero for the Outlaws in the bottom of the fifth inning, when his two-RBI single brought home the final two runs of the game, with Beau Meshell crossing the plate for the final run of the game.

“I saw the hit off the bat and I knew I was going to score,” Meshell said. “We’ve been here before, but we have something to accomplish this season. Jones has beaten us several times over the past year and we finally got a measure of redemption this time around.”

Trey Coffman and Tyler Brite got the Outlaws rolling with a pair of RBI hits in the bottom of the first inning, before Anthony Green slapped a two-RBI double to make it 4-0 in favor of the Outlaws.

Seth Scarbrough then made it 5-0 with an RBI single, before Coffman got an RBI double to make it 6-0 in the bottom of the second inning.

Tyler Brite added an RBI single in the second inning as well to put Marlow in control at 7-0, before Jones struck back.

Quinn Mason knocked a two-RBI double to center field, giving the Longhorns hope at 7-2, before Layton Moore made it 7-3 with an RBI single in the top of the third inning.

Marlow starting pitcher Wakely Bergner wasn’t so generous from that moment on, stifling the Longhorns the rest of the way en route to a complete game victory on the mound.

After Green made it 8-3 with a sacrifice fly RBI in the bottom of the fourth, Coffman and Brady Melton scored on walks to make it 10-3 in the bottom of the fifth inning.

An Austin Forsythe RBI single with the bases loaded scored Kolton Jones, who slid in safely at home to beat the throw, making it 11-3, which set up Knox’s heroics.

Bergner allowed just three runs on four hits with six strikeouts during the game.

Marlow will now await the draw of the state tournament, with the Outlaws scheduled to compete Thursday at Deer Creek High School in Edmond, at a time yet to be determined.

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.
