More baseball, same sort of results. Ben's Brewers team lost their game to the Athletics on Tuesday by a score of 13-8. Ben was 1-2 and made a fine play at 3rd base, knocking down a one-hop smash with a diving stop that saved a run. The parents were calling him Brooks Robinson afterward. Meanwhile, Maria's squad lost 15-8 to the hard-hitting Diamondbacks last night. Maria continues to improve her hitting as well, getting another single in the game. Maria now has her first hitting streak of the season. The kids played well but the other team was just too strong.
Lots more baseball, as usual - Ben's Brewers take on the league-leading Red Sox tonight at Wilson Park in Shoreview at 6:30 p.m. Watch this space for comprehensive Little League coverage!
