Nationals vs. Avalanche With the temperatures a little
more normal last night the fans turned
out at Salem Memorial.


The Avalanche defense would stand
tall in this one as Eric San Pedro
grounds to third and the Avs turn the
5-4-3 double play and keep the visitors
lead at 2-to-nothing.

Later the Nationals defense would
not be as solid. The throwing error by
the first baseman will allow two Salem
runs to come in and the Avs are right
back in it. *CG final Potomac

shot sails over the left field wall.
Salem wins it 10 to 5.
