The Starkville 12-year olds haven't given up yet.
Starkville rattled off its fifth-straight win as it eliminated Greenwood 14-5 Monday night to stay alive in the Mississippi Dizzy Dean 12-year old North State Championship.
"They won't quit," Starkville coach Leonardo Thompson said. "It seems like the more we play, the stronger they get."
Starkville will play Grenada Youth at 5 p.m. today in the championship round with Starkville needing two wins to claim the title.
"(When) you play eight games in four days, I think the focus is there," Thompson said. "They know it's baseball time. They're having fun right now and so are the coaches."
