[SUPER=03-Salem/Cannons vs. Avalanche; :00]

Muggsy had plenty to cheer about as the Avalanche exploded for 5 runs in the first inning. With Salem already up 1-to-nothing, John Lindsey sends a shot to left field. Jay Jones and Juan Uribe will score on the hit. Lindsey gets two rbi's and Salem in is front 3-to-nothing. Then later in the first, Choo Freeman will smack one up the middle. Lindsey and Matt Holiday hurry home.

(------------) Salem gets more than enough in the first as it doubles up Potomac 6-to-3.
