Westside put together a late rally to beat Amador East 6-5 in seven innings yesterday in a second-round Minors (9- to 10-year-olds) game at Jerry Whitehead Field in Tuolumne.

After tying the game with a four-run sixth inning, Westside won the game in the seventh on the strength of Brady Day's legs.

Westside set up Day's heroics in the seventh with a clutch sixth inning. Trailing 5-1, Alex Kiriluk got the ball rolling for Westside (Tuolumne and Standard) with a two-run single, scoring Curtis Kellogg and Zack Roberson. After Mikey Gold doubled in Kiriluk, Colten Krieg drove a line drive off the glove of Amador East's first baseman, bring in Gold with the tying run.
