SALISBURY, Md. -- A few seconds after John Davies finished the final part of Halfway's Houdini act Wednesday night, he wondered if he'd need to pull another one.
"I got mobbed at home plate and I started to wonder if I'd ever get out from under there," Davies said.
That's what happens when you hit a walk-off grand slam to cap an eight-run sixth-inning rally and give your team a new lease on life.
Down 8-1 to Berlin in the losers' bracket final of the Maryland 11-12 Little League State Tournament, Halfway came all the way back to earn an improbable 13-9 victory and reach the championship round against Brunswick.
