The Blue Devils have qualified for the Babe Ruth 13-year-old World Series, which will be held Aug. 15-22 in Jamestown, N.Y.

Mountain Home went 4-0 in the regional, defeating southwest Mississippi 2-1, Benton 5-3, and Del Rio, Texas, 17-9 in earlier play. Benton — the south Arkansas champion — defeated Del Rio in the loser’s bracket final to advance to the championship round against Mountain Home, which would have had to lose twice to Benton to be eliminated.
