Peyton Fuller tossed a two-hit shutout to lead Ashland past Lebanon 4-0 in a Class 5A play-in game Friday at North Mountain Park.

Fuller struck out nine and walked three in seven innings for the Grizzlies (18-8), who will host a first-round game on Wednesday.

Matt O’Donnell’s run-scoring triple in the second inning was all the Grizzlies needed. O’Donnell drove in another run on a fielder's choice grounder in the sixth and Jesse Carroll had an RBI single in the fifth.

The Grizzlies’ Kellar Edwards went 2-for-2 and scored a run.

Lebanon pitcher Dylan Williams took the loss after surrendering four runs, two earned, on six hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked one.

The visiting Warriors (8-19) had runners on second and third with two outs in the third, but Fuller escaped unscathed by striking out No. 2 hitter Issac Garber on three pitches.
