Outlaws extend winning streak to nine games

MARLOW — While there might have been several upsets in the world of sports over the weekend, the No. 6 Marlow Outlaws were in no mood to let that happen Saturday afternoon at Stone-Black Field.

A seven run first inning gave the Outlaws plenty of breathing room, before they tacked on 11 more in the bottom of the fourth inning to claim an 18-4 victory over Central High.

Marlow has now won nine straight games, including a dramatic 7-6 victory over No. 9 Kingfisher Friday night in Oklahoma City.

“Our goal at the start of the week was to win four games,” Marlow coach Jeff Brewer said. “I knew we had to come out and take care of business against a cross-town rival today because they (Central High) wanted to make a point today.”

Leading 7-1 in the bottom of the fourth, the Outlaws were already in control of the contest.

But, instead of being satisfied they added to the advantage.

Wakely Bergner trotted across the plate when teammate Logan Knox was beaned, giving Marlow an 8-1 lead.

Beau Meshell and Kolton Jones then both scored on walks to make it 10-1 game.

With the bases loaded, Trey Coffman cleared them with a two-RBI single to center field, before Tyler Brite got an RBI single of his own to make it 13-1.

Berger then collected two more RBI’s as a fielding error at first base contributed to the Outlaws making the score 15-1.

Moments later, the big hit occurred.

Meshell unloaded on a pitch from the Bronchos’ Ashton Wright and sent it flying over the right field wall for a three-run homer to make it 18-1 Outlaws.

Despite a two-RBI single from Wright in the bottom half of the inning, combined with an RBI single from Jarrett Sparks for Central High, the Outlaws were simply too much on the day.

“We had good pitching and threw strikes,” Brewer said. “I keep stressing defense to the kids. We’re pitching good and hitting good as a team. But, right now we are nowhere close to competing for a state championship defensively right now. We’ve got to continue pushing through.”

Five errors played a huge part in the first inning for both sides.

For the Marlow Outlaws, it turned out to be beneficial in helping them build a lead, whereas it dug the Bronchos into a hole.

Coffman benefited the most from two of the errors as he collected an RBI and scored on errors to help MHS get an early 2-0 lead.

Meshell then smacked a two-RBI double to center field, before later scoring on a walk to make it 5-0.

Seth Scarbrough then got on the scoresheet with a pair of RBI’s to make it 7-0.

Roger Robertson got the Bronchos on the board in the top of the fourth inning with an RBI bloop single that just found its way into right field.

Wakely Bergner got the win on the mound for the Outlaws (10-2) going three innings, not allowing any runs on two hits with two walks and three strikeouts.

Jarrett Sparks took the loss for the Bronchos (9-5), going 1 and 1/3 innings, allowing seven runs on three hits with five walks and one strikeout.

CHHS will be at home hosting No. 3 Sterling on Monday afternoon, while Marlow will travel to Frederick on Monday afternoon.

  • 4-20 Central High baseball.jpg Bronchos boast top-notch backstops

    Central High coach Jeff Jones has had to tinker with his lineup to get the best Bronchos on the field for most of the year, but one position he hasn’t had to worry about is catcher.
    That consistency came in the form of two very different players.
    First, there’s the unheralded freshman Keeton Sallee. Flirting with a .400 batting average, Sallee is one of the Bronchos’ best offensive weapons. On defense, his quick release and strong arm cause headaches for opponents on the basepath. Just months into his high-school career, he’s performing admirably.
