Whether it was Broken Arrow's Dylan Delso at the plate or Deer Creek's Michael Fulmer on the mound, the Oklahoma representatives fared well in the Area Code challenge this week in Long Beach, Calif.

Eight Oklahomans were on the Chicago White Sox roster that went 4-1 in the six days and earned the challenge championship.

In the team's final win, a 9-1 whipping of the Texas Rangers, Delso drove in two runs while Fulmer, Edmond Santa Fe's Kyle Shaw and Broken Arrow's Mason Hope combined to pitch five scoreless innings and struck out nine.

The White Sox roster had players from 11 different states, and Oklahoma had representatives from Deer Creek (Fulmer and Brian Anderson), Santa Fe (Shaw, Ty Hensley and Clayton Blackburn), Norman North (Caleb Simpson) and Broken Arrow (Delso, Hope).
