The Lincoln Little League Majors Giants opened up a half game lead over the Padres with back-to-back victories in LLL Baseball as the season got underway. The Bay Area boys blanked the Phillies and then bounced back to slip by the Rangers, 5-4. Hot on the Giants heels’ are the Padres who are a half game back in the win column. The Friars knocked off the sizzling Red Sox and are scheduled to meet the Yankees, 6 p.m., Saturday. The Yankees and Pirates are locked at 1-1 apiece and hope to gain some ground this week. The Bronx Bombers have the best chance taking on both teams at the top. The Bucs tangle with the Giants tonight, 7:15 p.m. to try to slow the SF juggernaut. The Bean Town boys looked to be the front runner scoring 21 in their first outing, but then stumbled against the Pads. They, too, will get a crack at the Giants, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. Looking to break into the win column are the Rangers, a club that was the team to beat last year. They’ll get their shot at 1 p.m. Saturday taking on the boys of Brotherly Love who have yet to play. It’s great baseball action at Field 1, McBean Park each and every week. Get out and support your favorite nine. Lincoln Little League 2012 Majors Standings Team W L GB Pct 1. Giants 2 0 -- 1.000 2. Padres 1 0 ½ 1.000 3. Red Sox 1 1 1 .500 4. Yankees 1 1 1 .500 5.
