Outlaws pitching and defense remained tough, and the bats came alive as the Outlaws took it to Elmira in a three-game test last week.
The Sisters baseball team traveled to Elmira on Tuesday and came home with an 8-3 victory. Patrick Silva pitched five innings, not allowing a run, and Landen Scott pitched the final two innings.
"Elmira made a late push in this game but we were able to hold on for the win with some key hits late in the game that helped extend our lead," said Coach Matt Hilgers.
Baseball weather graced the Outlaws home field on Friday for a double-header in 80º temps. The Outlaws completed the sweep with a 6-2 win in game one, and a 14-4 victory in game two, which was called after five innings due to the 10-run rule.
Brody Duey pitched the first game, holding Elmira to two runs in six innings, and Austin Dean came in to finish the seventh inning.
"In game two we opened up scoring early and often as the offense started to click, and we put much better swings on the baseball supporting Brody Fischer, who gave up four runs in five innings," Hilgers said.
The Outlaws were to travel to Siuslaw on Tuesday and will host the same team in a doubleheader on Friday.
"This will be a challenging series for us (as) we continue to get better every day and attempt to reach a few of our season's goals," Hilgers said.
