North Tahoe’s one run came in the first inning on two walks and a passed ball.

Trailing 1-0 after two innings, Truckee’s David Fenton gave Truckee a 2-1 lead with a two-RBI base hit in the third, and Ethan Rohlf added to an eight-run fourth inning with a leadoff home run. Andrew Elder contributed to the rally with a two-RBI base hit.
