South Post 4's stay at the American Legion Northwest Regional in Eugene, Oregon, was brief and painful.

The baseball team from Boise, Idaho, dispatched South 18-8 in seven innings Friday to eliminate the Alaskans from the double-elimination tournament. South fell 24-3 to Medford, Oregon, in its opener Thursday. Both games were shortened by the mercy rule.

Boise led South 8-1 after two innings and 16-1 after four innings.

Alec Valdez went 2 for 3 for South, scoring two runs and driving in two runs. Jake Crapps also drove in two runs, and Tyler Kile and Sage Dudick each drove in a run.

Boise's Parker Price went 2 for 4 and drove in four runs.

South's pitching staff was rocked in the regional, where opponents hit .506 (41 for 81) against it.
