Babe Ruth World Series: Day 4

Glen Allen, the host team, has clinched the #1 seed from the National Division and a berth in Friday's championship semifinals, thanks to a 12-run explosion over three innings to hand Middle Atlantic champion Broomall-Newtown, PA their first tournament loss Tuesday night, 12-2.

Glen Allen, now 3-0, faces Janesville, Wisconsin Wednesday evening. Wisconsin is fighting for the third and final playoff berth in the National Division. Boonville could finish out of the running, or as high as the #2 seed in the National with a win over Pennsylvania Wednesday at 1pm combined with a Glen Allen victory later in the evening.

The American Division's three representatives in the championship rounds are set, as Phoenix, Arizona and Gainesville-Haymarket, Virginia each are 3-0, while Greenville, North Carolina took an 8-2 win over Glacier, Montana for their second win, eliminating Montana and Waterford, Connecticut, who are both 0-3.
