The Miles City Outlaws Baseball Club 19U baseball team struggle to close out the Post 320 Tournament, in Rapid City, SD.

After starting the tournament 1-1 the Outlaws finished the tournament on a four-game losing streak.

With the tournament in the books the Mavericks record moves to 20-10.

“It was a tough weekend for us. We got to see several top end arms, not all but some so we were very pleased with that and how our guys responded to those challenges, we didn’t do enough but there were some good moments,” Outlaws Head Coach Monty Frare said. “Our defense got better even though the score didn’t reflect it and we had a couple of our arms really pitch very well against good physical hitters.”

Frare added that his team needs to continue to keep getting better and they will.

“The boys were not happy with the weekend and know we can play better so that was also a good sign,” Frare said. “Sometimes baseball will kick you in the teeth and it sure did that to us over the weekend, but our guys will spit those teeth out and get back up. We got beat up pretty good so it was not a good weekend for us. We will do a better job of getting them ready for that level of competition because we will have to at the Williston tournament where there will be more good clubs which is good for us.”

The Outlaws are back in action starting Thursday, as they compete in a Williston Tournament. The tournament is being held in Williston, ND, from Thursday through Sunday.
