Sisters added two more runs in the fifth including a two-out single for an RBI by Dillon Witt. Morgan ripped an RBI double in the sixth and Sisters tacked on one additional run to secure the win.
The Outlaws have two league games remaining and then will head into playoffs.
"We have to definitely elevate our game in the playoffs," stated Coach Steve Hodges. "We're going to face much tougher pitching than we have in league and we're going to try and make that adjustment in practice. We also have to work on our offensive execution and we're going to put players in pressure situations and see how they perform."
The Outlaws were to play La Pine at home on Tuesday, May 7, and will play at La Pine on Friday in their final league game of the season. Sisters will host the first round of the state playoffs on Wednesday, May 22. Their opponent is yet to be determined.
