The Bitterroot Red Sox of Montana scored early and often en route to a 12-1 victory in seven innings over Service Post 28 in an elimination game at the Northwest Class A Regional Tournament in Eugene, Oregon.


Montana led 1-0 after the first inning, 4-0 after the second and 10-0 after the third.


The Red Sox benefited from four Service errors, with 9 of the 12 runs coming unearned against pitchers Jaren Childs, Cobey Cupp and Andrew Jaidinger.


The Cougars got an RBI double from Ronan Klancher. Nathan Cole and Carsen Sandau delivered Service's other two base hits.


Service, the state runner-up, finished the season 22-11.


Last year, the Cougars won a game at the NWCART. Alaska teams have racked up five victories at the tournament since 2013.
