RAPID CITY, S.D. --
Right now the hottest team in the State A Legion Baseball Tournament is Sioux Falls West.
After upsetting top seed Mitchell on Thursday, West won a wild marathon last night against Watertown, rallying in the 10th to win 15-14 on a walkoff single from Alex Linneman.
One week ago this might have seemed crazy. Post 15 lost their first game of regionals and had to win three elimination games just to get to state.
For some of them this old hat. After all Coach Sage and a few players were part of the Roosevelt team that went from wildcard to state champion in the high school season.
They say loosening up a bit helps them relieve the postseason pressure.
