Fulton stops slide with earlier win over Blair Oaks

April 26th, 2014 in News

Fulton Hornets head coach Darren Masek described his team's hitting approach against the Hannibal Pirates as "backwards."

Looking at Fulton's offensive output - a scant run on just three hits - and it's hard to argue with him.

The Hornets plated their only run in the second inning while Hannibal did all of its damage in the first two frames in dispatching Fulton 6-1 in North Central Missouri Conference play Friday night at the high school athletic complex.

It was the second game of the day for the Hornets (9-8, 4-6 NCMC), who topped the state-ranked Blair Oaks Falcons 4-1 in the first contest to snap their five-game losing streak.
