Fairbury did what they had to do in each inning to ensure a hard-fought, 5-4 win over Aurora in first-round action Friday in the Class B Area 4 American Legion Senior Baseball Tournament played at Levitt Stadium in York.
The two teams combined for just eight hits in the game, with Fairbury out hitting Aurora, 4-3.
Aurora got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the first as Jake Kittle singled and came around to score off a sacrifice fly by Eli Bricker.
Fairbury answered back in the top of the second tying the game at 1 off an RBI double from Bryce Barnts scoring Nate Klaumann.
After a scoreless third inning by both squads, Fairbury took a 2-1 lead, as Adam Wasserman led off with a walk, stole second base, and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Klaumann.
Wasserman scored on a misplayed ground ball off the bat of Barnts by Auroras infield.
