welcome to your Wednesday night.

The Salem Avalanche has been out

Salem came into tonight three and
a half game behind the first place

Indians vs. Avalanche The Avs would like to get a sweep :00 this week, but before you can break out
the brooms, you have to break out the
skillets for a little in-between
innings fun.

Salem punched across the first
run of the game in the first.
Christopher Johnson reaches on this
lazy fielding error by third baseman
Wes Hodges. Mitch Einertson slides home
safely and the Avs take a one to
nothing lead.

Still in the first and still two
outs - Hodges boots another easy one at
third. Orlando Rosales reaches on this
error and Mark Ori scores.
*CG final Kinston

:00 The NCAA has taken away all eight
wins Coach Stoops and the Sooners
recorded in 2005 because two of the
players on that team got paid by a car
dealer, but never worked a day in the
business.

Rhett Bomar and J.D. Quinn
pocketed $17 thousand bucks in unearned
