Grand slam punches Trojans’ tickets

IC West returns to Des Moines with 11-1 win over Davenport West

IOWA CITY– Izaya Ono-Fullard punched the ball over the fence, and in so doing, punched Iowa City West High’s ticket to the 2017 Class 4A State Baseball Tournament in Des Moines.
Fullard, a senior, drilled a grand slam in the bottom of the fifth inning Wednesday, July 19, at home, in the substate final against the Davenport West Falcons. The four-run homer gave the Trojans an 11-1 lead, ending the game under the mercy rule.
The Falcons threatened, in the top of the second inning, with two men on and one out, but a pair of strikeouts from Braden Houston stopped the threat.
