SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Thousand Oaks, Calif., ended the summer-long pursuit of a world championship last night for Preston, Md., at the Little League Baseball World Series - but not before Preston put a scare into the U.S. West champions. Thomas Howe scored Ben LaNeve with a game-tying infield single in the fourth inning before the West champions scored runs in the fifth and sixth innings and pulled away for a 3-1 win in the U.S. semifinals at Lamade Stadium. Thousand Oaks (21-0) advances to tomorrow's U.S. championship to play Richmond, Texas, an 8-2 winner over Morganton, N.C., on Wednesday night.

Left to their own devices when the NFL lockout took hold in March, the Ravens dispersed in every direction. Ray Rice went home to New York to pump hands and iron. Tom Zbikowski boxed in the glaring light of Las Vegas and the faint light of Thackerville, Okla. Jameel McClain spent six weeks near Los Angeles learning a new way to train. When labor peace finally is restored and football resumes, the Ravens will reassemble for another run at the Super Bowl. Not until then will the team, its fans or even the players know exactly what was gained or lost in the work stoppage of 2011.
