Outlaws fall to Newport Cubs on diamond

The Outlaws were defeated 8-4 in their match-up against the Cubs at Newport on Monday, April 19. Sisters scored four runs on eight hits, and they had two errors in the contest.

Garrett Vohs’ go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the seventh was the big highlight for the Outlaws.

Vohs talked with The Nugget about his big hit.

“It felt really good off the bat, but when I got down in the count I was just trying to make contact,” said Vohs. “I knew the kid was going to throw a fastball because he punched a curveball in the dirt the pitch before. When I connected I knew it was gone. I was just shocked it went dead center. I was excited and happy that we were in the lead.”

Vohs finished the contest with three hits and three RBI.

At the end of the seventh the Outlaws were on top 4-3. Newport tied it up in the bottom of the seventh and then added four more in the bottom of the ninth to earn the win. Fielding trouble cost the Outlaws.

“The home run by Vohs would have given the Outlaws the win if they would have fielded the ground ball,” said Coach Kramer Croisant.

Easton Moore punched out a single and a double, and recorded one RBI. Adam Harper had two hits and Patrick Silva had one. Silva did a great job on the mound for the Outlaws. He pitched five innings and recorded four strike outs.

The Outlaws’ games against Stayton were postponed. Sisters was scheduled to play at Bend High on Monday, April 26. They will host Woodburn on Thursday.
