SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Finally, a win came easily. And finally, the Pacific Little League All-Stars of Lynnwood and Edmonds can lay claim to the Northwest Region’s top seed.

Read Carr, Logan Kruse, Matthews Turcotte and Mason Vaughn all went 2 for 2 — Vaughn with three RBI — as Pacific clinched the No. 1 seed for Thursday’s Northwest semifinals with a 13-3 four-inning, mercy-rule victory over Cody, Wyo., in its pool-play finale Tuesday night at Al Houghton Stadium.

Pacific (14-2, 4-0 tournament) made it look easy against Wyoming (8-5, 0-3), which was playing the second game of a morning-night split doubleheader.

With the win, Pacific plays either Alaska or Montana — depending on those teams’ game Wednesday — at 6 p.m. Thursday. No. 2 seed Bend, Ore., will play in the other semifinal at 2 p.m.

“We’re completely satisfied at this point,” Pacific manager Robley Corsi Jr. said. “This is fun.”

Pacific wasted no time in jumping on Wyoming, scoring three times in the first inning and five times in the second.

Vaughn, who had been 1 for 6 in the tournament, had a run-scoring single in the first inning and an RBI double in the second to spark Washington, which batted around in each of the first two frames.

“This was much better than the Montana game, because then we didn’t score in the beginning,” said No. 3 hitter Colton Walsh, referring to Pacific’s extra-inning victory two games ago. “With this, we got it going a little earlier.”

Turcotte started and got the win, allowing no earned runs in 22/3 innings.
