Here is a breakdown of Day 4:
Game 13: Pocatello Razorbacks [ID] 4, Juneau Midnight Suns [AK] 2
Pocatello got a combined four-hitter from starting pitcher Breadeon Boyer [win] and reliever Mason Foltz [save]. Boyer went the first six, with Foltz coming in with three innings of one-hit relief. The Idaho state champs improved to 56-1 on the year. Kaden Sweat drove in two runs for the Razorbacks, with Ethan Hunt and CC Burrup each knocking in one. Kam Farnsworth and Foltz each had two hits. Juneau led 1-0 and got within 3-2. Matthew Cunningham and Nathan Klein drove in the runs and Tod Baseden scored both runs. It was the second time Idaho beat Juneau, including an epic 3-2 13-inning victory in the first game of the tournament. Juneau ended the season 21-13.
Game 12: Cody Cubs [WY] 3, Whitefish Glacier Twins [MT] 1
Cubs starter John Beaudrie and Glacier Twins starter AJ Wetsch each went the distance in this old-fashioned pitcher’s duel. Beaudrie picked up the win, scattering seven hits across nine innings. Wetsch took the hard-luck loss, allowing just four hits, one earned run and zero walks over eight innings. With the game tied at 1-1 in the fifth, the Wyoming state champions plated a pair of runs. Cameron Wright and Cap McClure each had RBIs, and Wright, Brock Goodwin and Kevin Page each scored runs. Vincent Smith went 2-for-4 with the team’s lone RBI. Whitefish finished the season 39-22.
