Hornets scramble for first win

Horstmeier drives in game-winner as Fulton rallies past Hannibal 7-6

April 7th, 2013 in News

It could have been a lineout, it could have been a groundout.

However the Fulton Hornets recorded the final out of their first win, the manner didn't matter to junior Tyler Echelmeier.

"I don't care who made the final out," Echelmeier said. "The fact that we made the final out was really nice."

Echelmeier started Friday's game against the Hannibal Pirates on the mound, in a mess and in a four-run hole. He finished it at first base, squeezing a shallow pop-up from Pirates left fielder Austin Lewton in his mitt to secure Fulton's 7-6 comeback over Hannibal in North Central Missouri Conference action Friday night at the high school athletic complex.
