(TAYLOR, Mich.) - Bedford 13 & 14-year old All-Stars defeated Tennessee 6-to-4 Tuesday afternoon after coming from behind.

Monday's massive thunderstorms forced postponements of three of the four games and forced Junior League World Series officials to issue a revised schedule. Bedford All Stars took the field at 2:45 p.m.

Going into the top of the 2nd inning, Tennessee was leading 2 to 0 over the Bedford All Stars.

In the bottom of the 2nd, the Bedford All Stars brought in a run but Tennessee still led 2 to 1.
