MILLBURY, Mass. -- Pittsfield’s Anthony Scalise took his marching orders from the competition in Sunday’s Massachusetts 12-Year-Old Little League Championship Game.   With two out and men on first and second and Danvers clinging to a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the sixth, the Eastern Mass squad chose to issue a free pass to Evan Blake to load the bases.   It was hard to argue with the move, considering that Blake had five home runs in the four-game tournament, including one to score the Pittsfield American League’s first two runs on Sunday.   Hard to argue, but, if you were Scalise, a little hard to swallow.   “Yeah,” Scalise said when asked
