BRISTOL, Conn. — As Major League Baseball used to tell us, chicks dig the long ball.   But coaches and pitchers? They dig defense.   The Pittsfield American Little League had plenty of both on Wednesday afternoon.   Antonio Scalise and Evan Blake each homered, and the Americans turned three double plays in a 10-1 win over Coventry, R.I., to advance to Saturday's title game of the Little League New England Regional Tournament.   Owen Salvatore struck out six in a complete game victory on the mound, an effort helped along by twin kills in the first, second and sixth innings.   "After they turned that double play [in the first], not only did it give me a

BRISTOL, Mass. -- On Monday, the Pittsfield American Little League plays its second straight game under the lights at the A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Leadership Training Center.   Night baseball is still failry unique for the 12-year-olds, and that novelty nearly worked against the Americans in Sunday's opener.   Goffstown, N.H., had two runs in and a man on with one out in the top of the sixth, and Pittsfield was clinging to a 4-2 lead when Alex Magdziarsz lofted a fly ball to center field.   After finding the ball in the night sky, Owen Salvatore made the adjustments he needed to make the grab, helping to preserve an eventual 4-2 win.   "Honestly, I

BRISTOL, Conn. -- Evan Blake had 10 strikeouts in his Little League New England Regional debut on Sunday night.   None was bigger than the one that came with two out in the top of the third inning of an eventual 4-2 Pittsfield American Little League win.   It was a scoreless game in the third, but Goffstown, N.H., was threatening to change that with the bases loaded.   And Blake, who had allowed his first two hits in the inning, started off Goffstown's No. 3 hitter with a ball.   That is when Pittsfield manager Joe Skutnik sent assistant coach Pat Bramer to the mound.   "He said: Just relax and take your time," Blake said. "I was rushing a little

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Unlike his players, Pittsfield American Little League coach Joe Skutnik knows just what his team is getting into this week.   "As a coach who has been there before and when you get to this point, a state final game, you sit there and say, 'Man, the kids would have a blast down there,' " Skutnik said after Sunday's state title game win over Danvers. "So as a coach, you're really hoping that you can get there — not for yourself but for the kids because it's fun. It's a lot of fun down there."   On Sunday evening in Bristol, Conn., a fun summer for the Pittsfield Americans will continue when they take on

DALTON, Mass. -- The Dalton 14-and-under travel softball team traveled a long way in a short period of time.   Morgan Marauszwski went 4-for-5 with a triple, and Kayle O'Bryan struck out eight in a complete-game effort and hit a three-run triple Thursday as Dalton defeated the Berkshire Blaze, 9-2, to win the Berkshire County Championship at Pine Grove Park.   It was a solid win to end the summer for a team that looked a little shaky when the season began.   “The first tournament we went to, we were awful,” Dalton coach Ken Pease said. “We learned so much since that tournament. We got mercy-ruled almost every game.   “We kind of regrouped, and

Following his talk, Soares made sure to take the time to listen to the campers' own stories and answered their questions. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Wayne Soares' two favorite baseball players of all time certainly put up a good statistics. But, what makes them his favorites is the respect they showed to him.   "When they talk to you, they talk to you. They don't talk at you. If somebody is talking to you, they are respecting you. When they talk at you, they don't respect you. Remember, do not let anybody ever disrespect you, ever. I don't care who you are, where you live, the color of your skin, your nationality, nobody deserves to be disrespected,"
