The fifth borough has come up big once again.
A Staten Island little league team is on its way to the World Series.
The Staten Island squad reached the title game with a 7-1 victory over Delaware - its fifth straight win in the regional playoffs.
The winners now move on to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The team of 11- and 12-year-olds was selected in mid-June after the local Little League season ended. Mike Zaccariello, manager for the last 18 years, told the Daily News things clicked right away with his dozen players.
"Camaraderie - everyone gets along very well," he said. "The parents have been very good. It's been a great experience."
In 2006, the Mid-Island All-Star squad from Staten Island reached the World Series. But they lost three straight games and eliminated.
