Iowa City West rallies by defending champion Johnston at 4A State Baseball Tournament

Posted: Updated:
The Iowa City West Trojans scored six runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, defeating the Johnston Dragons, 7-6, in the Class 4A state semifinals Friday night at Principal Park to advance to the state championship game on Saturday night.

Eighth-seeded Johnston had scored four runs in the top of the sixth and took a 6-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh — and the defending state champs were just three outs away from a second straight trip to the 4A title game. But West pushed across six runs on four hits, one error, three walks, a hit batter, a catcher’s interference call and a wild pitch for the amazing comeback win.
