Outlaws fall victim to comeback at home

Marlow doomed by late mistakes

MARLOW — As the Marlow baseball learned in its game against Lone Grove Monday night, no lead is safe when consistent mistakes are being made.

After a strong start, the Outlaws made three unforced errors and fell victim to a Longhorn comeback in an 8-7 defeat at Stone-Black Field.

“We beat ourselves tonight,” Outlaws coach Jeff Brewer said. “We walked too many guys, put players on base and gave them extra outs by making errors. It’s disappointing because we were up 7-1 early.”

After allowing the Longhorns to score one run in the first, Marlow’s bats exploded in the inning’s bottom half. Brady Melton brought home Logan Knox with a bases loaded walk and Austin Forsythe added two more runs with a ground ball sharply hit between first and second base.

Following two scoreless innings, Marlow added to its lead in the fourth, the last inning when the team would score. It was the top of the Outlaws lineup coming through once again, with Marlow’s first three hitters loading the bases for the second time in four innings. Logan Knox led off the inning with a live drive single to left and extended Marlow’s lead by coming home on a wild pitch. On the next pitch, Melton place a line drive single to bring in two more runs and Forsythe added his third RBI of the game with a hard-hit double to deep left.

Starting pitcher Richardson kept Lone Grove in check throughout hisfour innings on the mound, allowing just one run and two walks.

After Richardson was taken out after the fourth, it was all Longhorns.

Fueled by three Outlaw errors and six walks, Lone Grove stormed back with three runs in the fifth and four more in the sixth to claim a one run lead. It was a Marlow mistake that gave the Longhorns an 8-7 advantage, as Lone Grove successfully executed a double steal on first and third base.

The Outlaws had one final chance in the bottom of the seventh, but the Longhorns clinched the win when a Marlow baserunner was caught stealing.

“You make three  routine errors and you hit that many guys, you don’t win a lot of ballgames,” Brewer said. “There’s a lot for us to learn and it’s frustrating, but we’ll get where we need to be.”

Marlow returns to action today at 6 p.m. against Ardmore at home.
