August 14, 2011 |  9:13 pm

Kerry Kelley pitched a one-hit shutout to lead the Venice Boys & Girls Club to a 8-0 victory over Harrisburg (Pa.) on Sunday at Target Field in Minneapolis in the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities senior division championship.

Kelley was selected the most valuable player of the event for the second time in three years, having also led Venice to the title in 2009. He did not give up any hits after the first inning and allowed only three baserunners for the game.

Alex Newman hit a two-run homer for Venice, which finished the competition with a 4-1-1 record.
