HOME RUNThe Marlow baseball team received a district tournament bye thanks to a high ranking, but the Outlaws stayed busy with a pair of games.
Marlow downed visiting 4A Cushing 2-0 on Friday and then run-ruled Pauls Valley in five innings with a 10-0 win to run its latest winning streak to 13 games. MHS had a 14-game winning streak earlier in the season.
Monday
Marlow 10, Pauls Valley 0

It did not take the Outlaws long to get on the scoreboard and begin their march to victory.
Seth Scarbrough reached on an error in the bottom of the first, and following a walk to Trey Coffman, Tyler Brite slapped a single to the outfield. Scarbrough turned the corner before putting on the brakes. Meanwhile, Coffman took off to third, leaving Scarbrough stuck between bases to get caught in a rundown. Scarbrough though would slide under the tag at home for the first run.
Wakley Bergner then drove in the second run with a sac fly.
Bergner was not done driving in runs, however. Two innings later with Brite on base, the shortstop got a hanging curveball and drove it over the left field fence for his first home run of the season.
Kelby Richardson scored the first run of the third when he singled and eventually  scored on a wild pitch.
The Outlaws would add two more runs in the bottom of the fourth. Scarbrough reached on an error. Coffman followed with a double and an error by the second baseman off the bat of Brite allowed Scarbrough and Coffman to score.
Marlow put the game away in the fifth. Caleb Barber drove in one run, and Kolton Jones ended the game with a bases-loaded double for the final runs.
Coffman was the winning pitcher, going three innings, striking out three with two walks and surrendering one hit. Tyler Brite finished the game on the mound, tossing the final two innings while striking out one and walking one.

Marlow 2, Cushing 0

Wakley Bergner and Beau Meshell combined for the shutout, which included nine strikeouts. Bergner pitched the first four innings before surrendering the mound to Meshell, who closed out the game, and ended up with the win.
The Outlaws pushed both their runs across in the fifth inning.
