July 9 Double Header vs. Renner

West would roll in two games in Renner to open their week of play on July 9. 

In game 1, West broke out for 19 runs to win 19-2. Sam Siegfried went 3-5 and drove in four baserunners as Ryan Rysavy struck out seven and allowed just 1 earned run in the five innings he pitched.

Game 2 was a wild, offensive outbreak for both teams as Renner and West combined for 25 hits and 31 runs. A five-run eighth inning for West broke a 13-13 tie that sent the game into extra innings.

July 10 Double Header vs. Pierre

Pierre was West's next destination as the two teams played a double header on July 10. West wouldn't have much luck in either game as they fell in a walk-off loss in game 1, 7-6 and was blanked 10-0 in game 2.

Mid-Summer Classic July 14 through 15

West returned to Sioux Falls for the Mid-Summer Classic as they looked to get back in the win column in their first game against Harrisburg on July 14. West was able to do just that by winning 5-3. Thomas Heilberger had three of West's four hits in the win. Ryan Rysavy earned the Win and Treyson Harty-Olsen came in to close the game.

West would continue their success against Mitchell later that afternoon. West put up 12 runs to defeat Mitchell, 12-4.

Back-to-back losses vs. Yankton and 13/14 East with scores of 10-5 and 13-0 respectively would conclude the weekend for West.
