    The streak. The championship. The glory of being the last team standing in Las Vegas Little League as the Fourth of July weekend 2010 got under way.

    The LVLL minors division Red Sox claimed all of that on Friday evening at Keyes Park by beating the rival Cardinals 13-3 in the last Little League game to be played in town this summer.

    Attention now turns to the district all-star tournaments, which begin Saturday in Raton. Local all-star teams have been practicing the last couple weeks around the city.
