outlawWOODLAWN – The Dierks Outlaws ended their baseball season against the Woodlawn Warriors Friday evening in the first round of their regional tournament.


The low scoring game launched with both pitchers displaying extreme control, making strike after strike. Due to that, the first scoring didn’t occur until the bottom of the second, with the Warriors getting one runner in on a line drive to center field. Despite further tight defensive play by the Outlaws, they were able to get another runner in on the bottom of the fourth from an error.
The Dierks boys made their salvo in the seventh, with Trendin McKinney grounding out hard to right field in order to get Tyler Kesterson across the plate. They had Brayden Kirby in scoring position, but were unable to get him in to tie the game and send it to extra innings. Final score Woodlawn 2-1.
The loss came despite the heroic efforts of pitcher Caleb Dunn, who made seven strikeouts and made 65 strikes on 103 pitches.
