Pocatello’s big win over Wood River headlines first day of baseball state tournaments
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - The Pocatello Thunder are one of five East Idaho teams that advanced to their respective state semifinals with wins on Thursday.
Poky dominated Wood River in Twin Falls, winning 8-1 thanks in part to a spectacular performance from Brody Burch on the mound. He nearly no-hit the Wolverines, but allowed the first Wood River hit with one more out to get.
Also of note, Blackfoot topped Bonneville 3-1 in eight innings to reach the other 4A semifinal. Plus, Sugar-Salem and Marsh Valley advanced in 3A and Malad won in 2A.
Semifinal games take place Friday across the Gem State with the championship games on Saturday.
