The Salem Lady Tiger Volleyball Season came to an end Monday night as they lost in two straight games to Sullivan in District play in Union. The Lady Volleyball Tigers finished the season with an 0-27-1 record.
Four Salem Lady Softball players were named to the Class 9 District team. The four girls are Shelby Carr, Payton Curley, Camryn Pryor and Savannah Hanning. Congratulations ladies!
Madison Bumgarner added to his already extensive postseason resume with another masterful performance in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday. The ace left-hander threw seven innings of one-run ball and got plenty of run support as the San Francisco Giants cooled off the streaking Kansas City Royals, 7-1, to take an early series lead in the Fall Classic. Salavdor Perez hit a solo homerun while James Shields was knocked around for seven hits and five runs over only three-plus innings. The Royals lost for the first time since Sept. 27 and will look to bounce back tonight when rookie Yordano Ventura toes the rubber opposite Jake Peavy. Kansas City had won 11 straight postseason games dating back to the club's only World Series title in 1985, but what would have been a record-tying 12th quickly slipped through the AL champions' fingers. First pitch is set for 7:07 tonight at Kauffman Stadium.
