    Mayor Michael Nutter is among the many baseball fans across the Delaware Valley buzzing over the Taney Dragons - the Philadelphia little league team who shut out its opponent in its first game of the Little League World Series.

    The city's leader will host a pep rally and viewing party for the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Little League champions in the City Hall Courtyard starting at 6 p.m. Sunday.

    The ball club faces Pearland East of Pearland, Texas, the Southwest champion, at the Howard J. Lamade Stadium in South Williamsport, Pa. at 7 p.m. Sunday.

    The viewing party is the second hosted by Nutter, who cheered the team on Friday afternoon as they defeated South Nashville 4-0.

    Ace pitcher Mo'ne Davis struck out eight batters in her complete-game effort against South Nashville, the Southeast champion.
