This week, Kramer Field is the hot spot for The Dalles Little League supremacy, as minors and majors city championships are on the line.

Two of the games were decided by one run.
Through one evening of play in the majors division, the Cubs slipped past the Cardinals by a 6-5 score to keep their season going.
