Glen Allen wins 2 of first 3 games at 14U Babe Ruth World Series

The host Glen Allen 14-year-old all-star baseball team won two of its first three games in pool play at the 14-year-old Babe Ruth World Series, which is it hosting at RF&P Stadium in Glen Allen. The team beat the Midwest Plains champions, 9-4, in its first game Aug. 10, then topped the Southwest champions, 7-3, Aug. 11 before dropping a 5-4 result to the Ohio Valley champions.

Glen Allen currently is in second place in the five-team American division, trailing only its opponent tonight, the Pacific Southwest champions, who are 3-0. Pacific Southwest has defeated the same three teams Glen Allen faced by a combined score of 29-2. The other team from Virginia, state champion Centreville, went 4-0 in pool play to win the National division. The Glen Allen-Pacific Southwest game will begin at 7 p.m. tonight.

Beginning tomorrow, the top three teams in each of the two divisions will start single-elimination play. Glen Allen will advance automatically to single-elimination play if Southwest beats Midwest Plains today at 4 p.m. Otherwise, it will need a win to guarantee a spot in the next round. Glen also could advance with a loss in a tiebreaker scenario if it finishes with fewer runs allowed than Midwest Plains and Ohio Valley. (Glen Allen has allowed only 12 runs so far, to Ohio Valley's 20 and Midwest Plains' 25.)
