GREENSVILLE, N.C. — It was no day at the beach as Port Angeles shut out Stamford, Conn., 6-0 in its first game at the Babe Ruth 16-and-under World Series on Saturday.

But after exploding for five runs in the sixth inning and a strong defensive showing, the North Olympic softball team is set for a trip to the Atlantic Ocean on its day off today.
