Lucas, shorthanded Wilcats clip Hornets

The New Bloomfield Wildcats roster was scratched up. Two players were sick; two had injured hands; two were ineligible.

“You only need nine,” Talbot said with a chuckle. “And we used all 10 of them.”

Senior pitcher Skylar Lucas — starting in a spring baseball game for the first time in his prep career — battled seven innings, threw 107 pitches and made it all stick for shorthanded New Bloomfield as it outlasted Fulton 3-2 at FHS Field.
