Viva Ponce!
Ponce, Puerto Rico scored six runs in the second inning on the way to a 10-4 win over Chesterfield County, Virginia in the PONY League World Series championship game.

Xavier Cedeno allowed one run and two hits over the first four innings to pick up the win.

The championship for Ponce is the first for Puerto Rico since Bayamon won the 1995 World Series. Meanwhile, Chesterfield County was trying to become the first East Zone team to win it all since Greensboro, North Carolina in 1968.

Hit Zone
Chesterfield County's Sean Mitchell is in the record books, winning the World Series batting championship. Mitchell had 12 hits in 18 official at-bats, breaking a 32-year-old World Series record. Arcadia, Californina's Steve Kemp had 11 base hits in the 1969 Series before going on to a major league career including stops with the Yankees and Pirates.

Mitchell drove in the game-winning run Thursday night against Washington, forcing the "If Necessary" game. Then the right-handed hitter repeated the fete, knocking in the eventual game winner Friday night, propelling Chesterfield County to the championship game.

Hard Luck Pitcher
Washington's Jarrod Wells took the loss Friday night, despite not allowing an earned run in the complete game effort. Well finished the World Series with a 1-1 record, plus a save. Over his 15 2/3 innings, Wells allowed only 2 earned runs, an ERA under 1.00. Wells won the World Series ERA Award. Ponce's Xavier Cedeno was the runnerup, allowing 2 earned runs in 14 innings on the way to the title.

Assault on the books
Lin Kun Sheng was first into the record books, hitting the 16th Grand Slam in World Series history on opening night.

Chesterfield County's Willie Grider was next, picking up his third Series victory Friday, making the Virginia right-hander only the 15th pitcher all-time with three wins.

Grider's teammate Sean Mitchell bumped former major leaguer Steve Kemp from the records with his 12th hit of the Series, the final one coming in Saturday's championship game.

WJPA Radio will provide live coverage of the 50th Anniversary PONY League World Series. The Championship game Saturday will be carried on WJPA-FM (95.3).
