     DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Martensdale-St. Marys High baseball
team in central Iowa has won its 76th straight game, a streak that
now ranks second-best in the nation.
     The Blue Devils, which plays in Iowa’s smallest classification,
surpassed the 75-win streak put up by Homer, Mich. from 2004-05 by
beating Mounty Ayr 10-0 Tuesday night.
     Martensdale-St. Marys competition for the nation’s longest-ever
winning streak still has its run alive, though.
     The Des Moines Register reports that Portsmouth, N.H. has won
its last 83 games.
