TROY -- Baylee Hall's bases-loaded walk with two outs in the bottom of the seventh capped an improbable rally, as the Fonda-Fultonville Braves worked five walks -- including four straight with two outs -- to score two runs without a hit in their final at-bat to pull out a remarkable 3-2 win against the Voorheesville Blackbirds to win the Section II Class B baseball championship game Wednesday at Joe Bruno Stadium.

The Braves trailed 2-1 heading to the bottom of the seventh and had managed just four hits against Voorheesville starting pitcher Nick Chiseri. But, Lucas Calkins walked with one out and, after Kevin Myers popped out, Anthony Sinicropi walked to extend the game after his pop foul was dropped by Voorheesville first baseman Alex Minnick.

Zak Shaw walked to load the bases, then Pat Hart worked a 3-2 count before Chiseri walked him to force home the tying run. That ended Chiseri's outing after 6 2-3 innings and 132 pitches in favor of reliever Kristian Singh, but Hall worked a full count before Singh's 3-2 fastball sailed high and wide to give the Braves their first Section II baseball title since winning the Class CC crown in 1982.

Shaw earned the win with a brilliant performance on the mound, surrendering only two hits and striking out eight, with the only two runs against him both resulting from a throwing error in the fourth inning.

The win advances the Braves to the Class B-BB playoff game Saturday at the Plumeri Sports Complex, where they will face either Johnstown or Schalmont for the right to represent Section II in the Class B state tournament.
