After getting a tough win over No. 13 Sulphur last Thursday, the Marlow Outlaws decided to end the week on a high note last Saturday in Ardmore.
MHS used a pair of offensive outbursts to claim 15-6 and 12-4 victories over Ardmore and Plainview respectively.
“Ever since the Comanche game, our players have started to turn a corner,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “Our kids have been playing a lot better since then and it showed this weekend for us.”
MARLOW 15 ARDMORE 6
Despite the Tigers being a Class 5A opponent, the Outlaws had no problem bring AHS down to size in their first game of the day.
After two innings of play, MHS held a 5-2 lead, before outscoring the Tigers 10-3 over the last three innings to claim the run-rule victory in six innings.
Seth Scarbrough claimed two RBI in the game along with Tyler Bright.
Kelby Richardson, Wakely Bergner and Trey Coffman were among several Outlaws who collected an RBI in the contest as well.
Beau Meshell (2-0) got the win on the mound for the Outlaws, throwing 3 and 1/3 innings work. Trey Coffman threw 2 and 2/3 innings of relief for Marlow.
MARLOW 12 PLAINVIEW 6
While Plainview might have held a lead after the first inning, it didn’t last long.
Marlow came back with five runs in the second inning to take a 7-3 advantage and never look back against the Indians.
Two runs in the sixth inning ensured that Marlow won its fifth straight game heading into spring break.
Anthony Green went 2-for-4 with four RBI in the game, with Kelby Richardson going 3-for-4 with two RBI. Tyler Bright went 3-for-3 with two RBI and three runs scored.
Wakely Bergner (3-0) got the win on the mound for the Outlaws.
This week will see the Outlaws in action multiple times as MHS will take part in the Washington Spring Break baseball festival on Thursday with two games against Mangum (2 p.m.) and host Washington at 5 p.m.
