The best show in town is in full swing at Cunningham and Ralph Stout Parks featuring the boys of summer. Little League Baseball is on display every day except for Wednesday and Sunday.
One third of the major league season has already been completed on the baseball side featuring players ages 9-12. The Marlins (4-1) coached by Gary Woodard leads the way.
However they fell from the unbeaten ranks on Thursday to the Angels 2-1 coached by Brad Reece.

“Nat” nearly no-hits Marlins
The Angels got a monster performance on the mound by Nathaniel Aschenback who limited the “Fish” to a single hit over five innings while picking up the win.
Jordan Williams spoiled his no-hitter and shutout bid by ripping an inside-the-park home run in the fifth.
Mason Bragg came on in relief to finish out the game and collect the save for the Angels. He never allowed a hit in his two innings pitched.
Bragg would also factor in on the scoring.
He drove in Asa Lewis with a triple to right center and scored the winning run on a single by Graham Reece.
Reece had a pair of hits for the Angels. Connor Simcox picked up the other one.
Dodgers 14
Angels 4
The Angels didn’t fare as well against Donald Greer’s Dodgers on Monday. They defeated them in convincing fashion 14-4.
The Dodgers exploded for 10 runs in the fourth inning after failing to score during the first three innings.
Stacy Greer handcuffed the Angels by striking out 11 batters to earn the win.
He would get more run support in the fifth when the Dodgers tallied four more. Peyton Pavusek had a double, Ethan Icenhour had two triples, and Stacy Greer had a double and a home run for the Dodgers. The Angels only managed three hits – a single by Graham Reece, and a double each from Mason Bragg and Trey Snyder.
Marlins 14
Longhorns 2
The Marlins got a strong effort on the mound from Seth Corder and Taylor Nichols to knock off the Longhorns 14-2.
Corder pitched the first two innings to earn the win. Nichols tossed the final four frames.
Jordan Williams swung the big sticks by blasting two triples for the winners. Corder had a pair of doubles. Logan Gilley, Anthony Hall and Zack Parson collected a hit each for the Fish.
Randy Stanley, Matthew Moses, Gaston Dugger and Dalton Anderson picked up base hits for the Longhorns.
Longhorns 15
Braves 6
The Longhorns had their hitting pants on in a 15-6 win over the Braves.
Preston Greer led the way with two singles and a double. Dalton Anderson added a pair of hits. Ian Norris, Matthew Moses and Randy Stanley chipped in with one apiece. Hunter Marshall walked three times while Gaston Dugger drew a couple of free passes.
Will Henson blasted a triple and a double to lead the Braves. Justin Austin added a pair of singles. Paige Norris and Mark Fritts recorded a hit each.
