Keys vs. Avs There was plenty of action to :00 videotape on the field and in the
stands tonight at Salem Memorial.

We pick it up in the bottom of
the fifth - Mark Ori skies one out to
left field - the ball gets lost in the
sun - the fielder can't find it and Ori
ends up on second base with a double.

The Avs just kept picking on Pete

Maestrales. This time Mitch Einertson
hits one just out of reach in the gap.
Ori scores on the play and the
insurance run will make it a 4-to-2
Salem.
*CG final Frederick Maestrales' night of bad luck 2 continued at the plate as Eric King Salem robs him of a hit with the diving stop 4 and then throws him out. Salem wins GAME ONE Game one 4-to-2 and sweeps the
doublheader with a 5 to 3 win in the
