Horstmeier, Hornets stifle Marshall

— Fulton senior pitcher Dalton Horstmeier struck out 12 in a complete-game, one-hit effort as the Hornets shut out the Marshall Owls 3-0 in North Central Missouri Conference play Friday night.

Horstmeier — making his first start of the season — walked three and finished 1-for-4 at the plate as the Hornets (3-2, 1-1 NCMC) ended a two-game skid.

“He was very dominant tonight,” Fulton head coach Darren Masek said. “He had good command of his fastball and was able to control his curveball.”
