The Cody Cubs never stood a chance. The Pocatello Razorbacks has had destiny riding shotgun all year long.
Pocatello capped an epic season with a runaway victory in the championship game of the Northwest Class A Regional Tournament, winning 20-1 at Mulcahy Stadium.
The Idaho state champs went 5-0 in the NWCART and finished the season with an incredible 57-1 record. They played American Legion Baseball for three months and lost one game. That’s just awesome.
There was no beating Pocatello Tuesday night.
The Razorbacks banged out 19 hits and scored four runs in the first inning, three in the second, two in the fifth and 11 in the sixth.
Cleanup hitter Kam Farnsworth earned player-of-the game honors after going 4-for-5 with three doubles and five RBIs. Spencer Bray and Trevor Bowers also had four hits. Kaden Sweat went 2-for-5 to bump his tournament average to .450.
Bowers also pitched, carrying a no-hitter into the sixth inning. The right-hander finished with a two-hitter across seven innings of work.
Bowers was named the tournament’s top pitcher after racking up a 1.80 ERA in 15 innings with 21 strikeouts.
The tournament MVP was Mason Foltz.
This guy did it all, a dual threat who beat you on the mound and in the box.
Foltz pitched 13 innings over three appearances, earning two wins and a save. He had a tidy 1.38 ERA with 12 strikeouts.
At the plate, Foltz hit .450 with nine hits in 20-bats. He drew five walks, scored eight runs and hit a double and a triple.
In five NWCART games, Pocatello outscored their opponents 50-11 and batted .324 as a team.
In other tournament awards, Cody Cubs right fielder Shad Moir won the Gold Glove award and the Big Stick award went to Whitefish Glacier Twins first baseman Vincent Smith. The Montana slugger led the tournament in batting average [.500], slugging percentage [.875] and extra-base hits .
