WILLIAMSPORT (WXYZ) - They've been there before.
Twice in the Michigan state tournament, the boys from Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores found themselves behind, late in the game.
"I told them, we've done this before, you know never to quit," manager Kurt Barr said.
In the bottom of the sixth inning against Idaho, the bad boys from Michigan did it again.
They plated four runs, including a walk-off winner to complete the comeback that gave the team from Michigan it's first win in the non-consolation round of the Little League World Series since 1982.
After taking Saturday off, the team faces a Hawaii team that won in walk-off fashion in the longest LLWS game in history, a two-run home run in the bottom of the 11th sent them to the next round.
Now, the winner of Sundays game (2 P.M. ABC) has a fast track to the championship game.
"Winning the game tomorrow would be huge because now you're sitting basically in the semifinals on Wednesday and winning one game away from the championship," Barr added.
The only time a team from Michigan won the LLWS was in 1959 when the team from Hamtramck did so.
