Marlow Outlaws claim 10th victory in a row

DUNCAN — Facing Frederick on the road, the Marlow baseball team would not let a little cold weather pose a threat to its recent hot streak Monday.

The Outlaws (11-2) overwhelmed the Bombers (3-5) from start to finish, winning 14-4 in four innings to win its tenth straight game.

“We’ve had more consistency at the plate and with our batters and we’re doing all the right things,” Outlaws coach Jeff Brewer said. “We’re playing with more confidence and are playing hard to enough to win games.”

For the fifth time this season, Wakley Bergner (5-0) led the way on the mound for Marlow, as Frederick failed to muster a single hit in the shutout.

“You can’t overlook what he’s done and he deserves a lot of credit for the way he’s pitched,” Brewer said. “He’s been able to pit us in a good position more than once this year and it’s relaxing for the hitters when they know that.”

The second inning went about as well as it could for the Outlaws offense, as it broke a scoreless tie by exploding for nine runs.

Sophomore outfielders Brady Melton and Logan Knox rose to the occasion in the win, each driving in three runs. Marlow had six different players get on base, eight players score and seven players drive in runs.

Trey Coffman continued to thrive at the plate, reaching base three times, scoring three runs and finishing with two RBIs.

Patience remained another key for the offense, as the Outlaws finished with seven walks.

With a nine run lead, Bergner didn’t let off the gas, finishing with four strikeouts in three innnings. After another Outlaws offensive outburst, this time for five runs in the top of the fourth, Melton relieved Bergner with a hitless fourth inning to secure the win.

Marlow will face arguably its biggest test of the season today when it hosts the undefeated No. 8 Davis Wolves at Stoneblack Field at 4:30 p.m.

“It’s a game that everyone is excited for,” Brewer said. “I told my players, ‘get ready, bring your best’ because we will need to against them.”

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.
