Playing their fourth game in as many days, the North Callaway Thunderbirds ended their week Thursday with an 18-4 loss to the Moberly Spartans in the seventh-place game of the Fulton Tournament at Darrell Davis Field.
North Callaway scored all of its runs in the bottom of the second inning. Matt Weber hit a sacrifice fly to start the scoring, then the Thunderbirds followed that with three straight RBI hits: a double by Davis Woods, a single by Braydn O'Neal and a single by Bryce Clark.
Moberly led 8-4 after two innings but helped end the game early by run-rule with a six-run fourth inning.
O'Neal went 2-for-3 with two singles for the Thunderbiards. Christian Griffith had a leadoff single in the third for the team's fifth and final hit.
Clark was the losing pitcher, allowing eight runs on six hits in 1 innings. Griffith walked three and struck out two in 2 innings of relief, while AJ Haubner had one walk and one strikeout in a two-run fifth inning.
North Callaway (9-13) will wrap up the regular season with a home game Tuesday against New Bloomfield.
In Thursday's other tournament game, Hallsville defeated Mexico 10-0 in six innings in the fifth-place game.
The Fulton Tournament concludes today with a pair of games: Fulton vs. Eldon in the third-place game at 4 p.m., followed by the championship game between No. 1 Southern Boone and No. 2 Fatima at 6:30 p.m.
