what a gang is and you'll most likely
get five different answers.

To some folks a gang is a group
of kids who constantly hang out and may
dress alike.

To someone else it's a group that
carries guns.





Ever since gunshots rang out on Melrose
Avenue, there's been a lot of talk
about gangs in Roanoke.



Aflred Trussell says they exist and he
was shot by one of them that night.

Indians vs. Avalanche Another breezy night in the :00 valley although the conditions overall
were pretty nice last night.

The Avs got busy in the bottom of
the first inning as Neil Sellers smacks
one to left field. Bo Torbert will
motor around the bases and do his best
to get another run, and watch him slide
in under the tag to make it
2-to-nothing.

Still in the first, Mario Garza
gets a hold of this offering and just
cranks it out over the right *CG final Kinston field fence. The two run shot scores 1 Sellers and Salem gets the 6 to 1 win Salem over Kinston.

Cavaliers vs. Terriers William Byrd and Lord Botetourt :00 hooked up in the second game.

We pick it up in the 4th, the
Terriers Jacob Branson has some trouble
with the bunt off the bat of Alan
Watts. Branson's throw to third gets
away allowing Mike Reed to cross the
plate, breaking a 1-all tie.

Still in the 4th, Jed Rasnick
comes up with a base knock thru the
right side of the infield. Emory
Straub chalks up another Cavalier run,
and it was 4-1 Botetourt.

But the Terriers answered in the
bottom half of the inning. Stephen
Dean doubles down the left field line,
and Lance Kennedy is on his horse for
home with the Terriers second run of
the game.

Coty Trivellin then drives *CG final Lord Botetourt in Dean with this shot back up the 7 middle. But it wasn't enough as William Byrd Botetourt shocks Byrd 7-to-4.
