HAMBURG — The Southwest Outlaws, a team consisting of many players from the First Nite and Gopher League, took a Class A state championship Sunday when it took a 5-3 win over the Urbank Gold Timers.

To get to the title game, Southwest got wins of 6-2 over New Hope and 3-0 in extra innings against Fort Ripley.

The Outlaws scored four runs in the first inning to take the lead for good. A single run in the sixth gave them some breathing room after a three-run third for Urbank.

Sam Baumgartner pitched a complete game to get the win in the championship game. He allowed just two hits and struck out four over seven innings. Paul Oelrich was 2-for-3 with a pair of runs with Jesse Teerink and Josh Noble adding key hits.

The Outlaws finish their season with a record of 12-7.
