GOING, GOING, GONE. Winner, winner, chicken dinner...According to the Associated Press, Dalton Carriker couldn't feel his legs as he rounded the bases. His home run in the bottom of the eighth inning had just given Warner Robins, Ga., a thrilling 3-2 victory over Japan and the Little League World Series championship. "I felt like I was flying, like Peter Pan," Carriker said. "I didn't know what I was doing."
Adrenaline took over from there, said the 12-year-old slugger with braces, whose dramatic homer over the rightfield wall on Junsho Kiuchi's 2-and-1 pitch gave the United States a third straight title.
