The Humboldt Eagles 19Us closed out pool play at the California American Legion Baseball Playoffs with a victory on Saturday.

Playing at Fairfield, the Eagles shut out TC Legion 11-0.

Unfortunately, however, after losses on Thursday and Friday, the victory wasn’t enough to qualify the Eagles for Sunday’s semifinal round.

Still, it was a nice way to end another memorable summer for the local all-star team.

“It was a fun summer,” head coach Matt Tomlin said. 

Jeran Ford and Cooper Ohlsen both closed out their seasons with a bang and combined to lead the way.

Ohlsen, who will be a junior at Eureka High this fall, continues to show plenty of promise and pitched a complete-game three-hit shutout.

Ohlsen struck out five and didn’t walk anyone.

Ford, a recent St. Bernard’s graduate who will play at College of the Redwoods next season, hit a big two-run home run off the left-field foul pole.

Ford finished 2-for-3 with four RBIs.

Del Norte graduate Jared Dixon capped a very impressive summer with the team by finishing 4-for-4 with s triple, a double and three runs.

Dixon will join Eagles teammates Vincent Agliolo and Daniel Osborne at Lassen College next season.

Osborne also closed out strong and finished 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Cayden Lee was 2-for-3 with an RBI.

Cole Ayala and Parker Rodgers both went 1-for-2 with an RBI.

The Eagles finished the summer with a record of 26-11-1.

They lost two heartbreakers to open tournament play, falling 12-10 to Petaluma on Thursday and 9-8 to Napa on Friday.
