Hitting, defensive issues trip Hornets in loss to Marshall

Hitting, defensive issues trip Hornets in loss to Marshall

April 5th, 2012 in News

One night after a dramatic comeback victory, the Fulton Hornets baseball team lacked offensive punch while crippling itself with a pair of costly defensive lapses.

Fulton managed just five hits, all singles, in falling to the Marshall Owls 4-2 in a North Central Missouri Conference matchup Wednesday night at the high school athletic complex.

The Hornets - after overcoming a five-run deficit in Tuesday night's 10-7 NCMC home victory over Moberly - slipped to 2-5 overall and 1-3 in conference play.
