Hendrick and Penske headed for tight title fight

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Hendrick Motorsports seems to have the edge, at least on paper, in the race with Team Penske for the top organization in NASCAR.

Hendrick has three drivers ranked in the top five of the Sprint Cup Series standings and Jeff Gordon has been the points leader for 12 of the last 13 races. Combined, Hendrick drivers have six victories this season.

Team Penske has both its drivers in the top nine in points, with Brad Keselowski charging hard after Gordon’s lead. Keselowski’s victory last week at New Hampshire was his third of the season, tying him for the most in the series with Jimmie Johnson.

With only seven races until the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship begins, it’s shaping up to be a Hendrick vs. Penske battle for the title.

“You’ve got the Ford versus Chevy and both organizations seem to be on top of their game right now,” Gordon said. “To me, there’s that competitive rivalry that we have among all our competitors, and when one rises to the top, then they put a target on their back and you go after it, and you have that sort of rivalry.”

But Gordon doesn’t want to be drawn into a personal rivalry with the Penske organization or drivers Keselowski and Joey Logano.

“There’s been a little bit here and there but you know, I think Brad certainly doesn’t mind a little controversy and stirring it up as we’ve seen social media wise and just in the media,” Gordon added. “For us, it’s just going about our business trying to be the best that we possibly can and those guys seem to be the teams to beat right now.

“If there’s any rivalry, it’s just that we’re working hard to go out there and be the most competitive team out there.”

DELPHOS — The Mel and Dee Westrich Memorial Athletic Complex at Delphos Stadium Park was the site of Wednesday’s Tri-County Little League finals matching the Delphos Pirates and the Delphos Braves.

The Pirates were going for a clean sweep of the 2014 summer — regular season, Fourth of July Tournament and the league tournament.

They scored twice in the bottom of the fifth inning and southpaw Braxton Scalf shut the door in the top of the sixth to give them that tourney title with a 3-2 victory.

Scalf got the save with his one inning of relief (1 hit, 1 base-on-balls), with second hurler Hunter Haehn (2 innings, 2 hits, 1 unearned run, 3 BBs) getting the win.

Brady Parrish threw the first three frames (2 hits, 1 earned run, 2 BBs, 6 Ks). The trio combined for 110 pitches (62 strikes).

The runs gave the loss to Braves’ reliever Brady Welker (2 IPs, 2 hits, 2 runs, 1 earned, 1 BB, 2 Ks), taking over for starter Carson Muhlenkamp (3 IPs, 3 hits, 1 earned run, 3 BBs, 5 Ks). The duo combined for 86 pitches (51 strikes).

Down 2-1 entering the bottom of the fifth, ninth hitter Trent Lindeman led off the Pirates’ half with a free pass. Scalf (2 runs) walked and a passed ball advanced both runners. An out later, Blake Fischbach (2-for-2, walk, 2 runs batted in) lashed a 2-run single to deep center for that 3-2 lead. He advanced on a wild pitch but a strikeout and bounceout ended the threat.
