Friday, February 10, 2006

SAINT LEO, Fla. � Newberry gave up seven runs over the course of the first three innings and was unable to mount a serious offensive threat Friday night as the Indians fell to Wingate at the Bob Tewksbury Classic opener for both teams, 10-4. The Indians stranded eight runners throughout the game and gave up two home runs.
