  • The Lee’s Summit Hawthorn Bank Outlaws went 11 straight innings without scoring Thursday in the American Legion Wood Bat Invitational.
    But the Outlaws erupted for four runs in the fifth inning on the way to a 5-1 win over the Sedalia Post 642 Travelers in Pool E play at Hidden Valley Park.
    Dalton Woods provided the big hit in the fifth and finished 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Brett Conrow went 3-for-4 with double, triple, an RBI and two runs scored, and Quentin Bradford added two hits, including a double, and an RBI as the Outlaws improved to 2-1 in pool play.
    P.J. Seufert threw a complete-game victory, allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out three. Herb Byers helped Seufert with a stellar defensive play. He ran down a deep fly ball fading away from him down the right-field line and then threw a strike to Blake Bruning at first base to turn a key double play with men on first and third and one out after Sedalia had already gotten its run in the fifth.
    The Outlaws, though, managed just three hits in a 3-0 loss to the Hays (Kan.) Post 173 Eagles earlier Thursday. Conrow went 2-for-3 and Bradford was 1-for-3 to account for all the Outlaws’ hits.
    Alec Schuler suffered the loss despite allowing just one earned run on three hits and two walks.
    The Outlaws, pending a late Thursday game between Hays and DeSoto (Kan.) SMCI, were 2-1 and tied with Sedalia atop Pool E heading into today’s final pool game at 12:30 p.m. against the St. Charles (Mo.) Central Spartans (1-1).
