Fulton’s Intermediate Division baseball team won the District 8 championship last Wednesday with a 2-1 win over Oswego.
Fulton played Oswego in a three-game series starting Monday for the district title.
Game one was never in doubt as Fulton won 15-5, putting them one win away from capturing the title.
Game 2 was a pitching duel between Will Caster of Fulton and Tanner Coleman of Oswego.
Fulton struggled early to put runs up while leaving men on base. They finally broke through in the bottom of the fourth inning after a bunt by Bryce Guernsey advanced Nolan Bonnie to third. Bonnie scored on Austin Fleming’s ground ball.
Fulton added another in the next inning when Malcolm Wettering scored.
Oswego added one run in the top of the sixth inning but would not get any closer as Caster pitched a gem. Fulton continued its run Monday when it started sectional play with a three-game series against Canastota.
Game two of the sectionals is schedule for today, July 3 and game three is Friday July 5 if necessary.
