The West Region baseball championship will feature the 4 seed Century and sixth-seeded Minot.

After the Patriots knocked off top-seeded Dickinson in the first semifinal in Mandan, Minot surprised second-seeded Legacy in the glacially-based nightcap, 9-6. The game lasted 2 hours and 36 minutes.

Minot scored three in the first and four in the third and never trailed. Morgan Nygaard went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBIs for Minot. Hunter Ruzicka had two hits and drove in two out of the clean-up spot.

Carson Deaver, a freshman, worked the first four innings to get the win. Hunter Roedocker worked the last three innings, allowing just one run, to earn the save. Minot leveled its record at 12-12 with the win.

Legacy, who faces Jamestown at noon in a state-qualifier, had two triples in the game. Carter Klipfel had one of them and drove in three. Marcus Butts had the other plus a single. Luke Welk also had two hits, including a double.

JAMESTOWN 6, ST. MARY'S 2

Jamestown jumped out to a 4-0 lead after one inning and never trailed to keep its season alive.

Connor Hoyt went 3-for-3 with two doubles and two RBIs for the Blue Jays, who climbed over .500 with the win at 12-11.

Mason Lunzman got the win on the mound for Jamestown.

MANDAN 11, WILLISTON 2

Mandan bounced back from a quarterfinal loss Thursday to keep its season alive with a nine-run win over Williston.

Up 4-2, the Braves scored seven runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to blow it open. 

Mandan pounded out 12 hits in six innings. Stetson Kuntz led the way with a 3-for-3 outing. Lucas Burgum clubbed two doubles, drove in two and scored twice. Seth Arenz also had two hits.
