September 23rd, 2011 in News

Fulton junior first baseman Anastacia Galbreath had three hits, including a grand slam, and drove in six runs Thursday night in the Lady Hornets' 16-6 NCMC rout of visiting Hannibal.

The game was called on the 10-run rule after six innings.

Galbreath went 3-for-4 with a double and a single as Fulton (6-11, 5-5 North Central Missouri Conference) finished with 10 hits. Freshman Brooke Baysinger - who collected the victory in relief - was also 2-for-3 with a double, a single, two RBI and a run scored.

Junior shortstop Rachel Snethen finished 2-for-3 with two singles, two RBI and scored once, while senior third baseman Rachel Washington was 1-for-2 with a single and three runs scored.

Washington also drew three of the Lady Hornets' 14 walks.

"In the later innings, we were being more selective and making the pitcher work," Fulton head coach Laura Dooley-Wilder said.

Baysinger gave up three runs - one earned - on five hits in four innings. She struck out five and walked two.

The Lady Hornets (3-4) won the junior varsity game 6-5 in three innings. Baysinger recorded the victory, striking out five. Junior catcher Laney Kaskus went 2-for-2 with two RBI and senior center fielder Savannah Kaskus was 2-for-2 with an RBI.

Fulton, seeded sixth, faces No. 3 Fatima at 10 a.m. Saturday in the first round of the South Callaway Tournament.
