At Bonneville, the start of a three-game series between two of the area’s top baseball teams on Thursday produced a pitching duel between Idaho Falls’ Cannon Thompson and Bonneville’s Randon Hostert.

Both tossed complete games, but the Tigers’ Thompson got the benefit of a three-run seventh as Idaho Falls pulled out a 3-0 victory.

Idaho Falls took a 1-0 lead on an error in the top of the seventh, and Caden White followed with a two-run homer to center for the 3-0 advantage.

Thompson, who struck out seven, made the lead stand up in the bottom of the inning and finished with a two-hitter. Hostert struck out 10 and surrendered just three hits.

Bonneville (12-3) and Idaho Falls (8-3) play a doubleheader today beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Melaleuca Field.
