Erin McAndrews of Marblehead, Mass., just missed becoming only the second girl to be a winning pitcher in the Cal Ripken 12-and-under World Series in Aberdeen yesterday. Willamette Valley, Ore., scored three runs off McAndrews in the top of the sixth inning to win, 9-7, and clinch a playoff berth for tomorrow with a 3-1 mark as the second-place team in the National Division. Marblehead is 0-3 with one game left, a 1 p.m. contest today against Meridian, Miss. (1-2). "I got tired in that last inning and it's hard playing against the boys because they are so much bigger and stronger," said McAndrews, a right-hander who said she'll likely give up baseball after this tournament.
