It was an amazing run by the Mifflin County 15-year-old all-stars, as they played their way into the Babe Ruth World Series championship game. The locals finished second in the nation as California’s Tri-Valley knocked off Mifflin County yesterday, 9-1, in the title game.

The Phillies have to be kicking themselves right now. These are the games they need to, and should, win. The NL-worst Diamondbacks knocked off the Fightin’s for the second day in row. Arizona 4, Philadelphia 2.

Not only did the Pirates lose for the 15th time in 17 August games, they were pummeled by the Dodgers yesterday, 9-0.

Harrisburg won its fourth in a row, beating Akron last night, 7-1. Altoona’s two-run walk-off homer beat Somerset, 6-5.

And the Eagles host the New England Patriots in a preseason game tonight. The Steelers welcome in Detroit on Saturday.
