Outlaws slide past Ardmore

MARLOW — Just one night after falling victims to a collapsed lead late, the Marlow Outlaws decided to turn the tables Tuesday night against Ardmore.

Down 6-4 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, MHS produced three runs, with Kelby Richardson hitting a three -run inside the park home run to give the Outlaws a wild 7-6 victory at Stone-Black Field.

“We made a lot of mistakes against Lone Grove Monday night,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “Luckily we were on the right end of things today. Kelby was the guy that saved us today, that’s for certain. But, we’ve got a lot of things to learn with such a young squad here. Once we get some of our veteran players back then we will be alright.”

Logan Knox got the rally started when he battled back from a 3-0 count to draw a walk, before Anthony Green was hit by a pitch on his foot to put runners at first and second.

Following a wild pitch, which advanced the runners to second and third, Kelby Richardson connected with a high chopper down the third base line, which scored Knox from third.

Green soon followed, scoring from second base, where Richardson slid into safely.

But, an errant overthrow allowed Richardson to advance to third, where another bad throw allowed Richardson enough time to slide home to win the game for Marlow.

Bodee Coffman gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning with an RBI double before MHS tied the game with a sacrifice fly by Brady Melton which scored Green in the bottom half of the inning.

The back and forth tempo continued in the top of the fifth inning, when AHS retook the lead with a two-RBI double by Jake Patterson to make it 3-1.

But, once again Marlow responded in the bottom half to take the lead this time.

After Knox was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, Preston Nunley trotted home to make it a 3-2 game.

Green tied the game at 3-3 with an RBI single, before Richardson hit an RBI double down the third base line to give the Outlaws a 4-3 lead.

Ardmore though, wouldn’t go away.

Cory Pender and Chris Garcia combined to give the Tigers back the lead in the top of the sixth inning at 5-4 before Patterson added one more to make it a two-run advantage.

Melton got the win on the mound for the Outlaws, throwing seven innings of work. He allowed six runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and four walks.

Patterson took the loss for the Tigers, throwing 2 2/3 innings of work, allowing three runs on two hits with two walks and two strikeouts.

Marlow will be back in action starting on Friday as the Outlaws will participate in the Red Dirt Post Season Tournament, which will take place in Washington.

    Coach Jeff Jones realized he made a mistake after Tuesday’s 8-7 win at home versus Fletcher.
    He saw that his freshman pitcher, Dylan Jones, was struggling but he still hoped that the Bronchos could finish off the win with him on the mound. Jones had only given up one run in six full innings. Why shouldn’t the coach stick with him?
