  • SULPHUR — Marlow collected just three hits but took advantage of 12 free passes issued by Madill pitchers to take a 10-0 victory over the Wildcats Saturday night to capture the championship of the fifth annual Earl Wilson Memorial Tournament played at Bill Lannom Field. The game ended in the fourth by run-rule.
    Earlier in the day, Madill defeated Davis 8-6 for the right to play in the championship game. The host Bulldogs then defeated the Wolves 7-5 in the third-place game.
    Marlow (15-2), and ranked No. 4 in Class 3A, showed great patience at the plate while the Wildcat pitching staff struggled to find the strike zone. Outlaw starter Wakley Bergner had no problem mowing down Madill batters to improve to a perfect 7-0 for the season. Bergner used 69 pitches, fanned seven, walked two and allowed just two hits to claim the win.
    An RBI single to center by Tyler Brite scored Kelby Richardson for the Outlaws' only run in the first. But in the second, things deteriorated for Wildcat starter Paten Bond. Bond walked three, hit one and gave up a bases loaded double to left by Trey Coffman that increased Marlow's lead to 5-0.
    Bond issued free passes to the first two Outlaw batters in the third, and Ivan Flores came on in relief for the Wildcats. Flores hit Anthony Green and walked Austin Forsythe to force in a run. Three wild pitches brought in three Marlow runners before an infield throwing error allowed the Outlaw's 10th run to score. Colton Henry relieved Flores and got the third out.
    Coffman was 2 for 3, including a double, with three RBI for the Outlaws. Sam Bond had a triple to the gap in right center in the second, and Gage Goff doubled to left in the fourth for the two Wildcat hits.
    Bond took the loss to fall to 1-1 on the season for Madill (7-5).
    Madill 8, Davis 6
    Sulphur 7, Davis 5
