Sports briefs: South Kitsap graduate Cunningham sticks with Indians
Aaron Cunningham, a 2004 South Kitsap graduate, made the Cleveland Indians’ opening-day roster.

In parts of four major-league seasons with San Diego and Oakland, Cunningham has hit .231 with six home runs and 44 RBI.

Sablan twins ink with OC

Weather halts SK’s spring break plans
South Kitsap baseball coach Jim Fairweather said his team will not travel for games in Idaho and Spokane because of snow and rain. The Wolves initially were set to play Wednesday at Post Falls (Idaho) and Thursday at University of Spokane. Those games will not be made up, but Fairweather said he will look to schedule at least one more nonleague game to compensate for that. Tuesday’s league game at Shelton also was rained out. Fairweather said that one likely will not be made up until late next week — at the earliest.
Fairweather also hopes to reschedule nonleague games at Kentridge and North Kitsap that were rained out about a month ago.
South (5-3 overall, 4-3 league), defeated Shelton 15-1 on Monday, next plays at 3:45 p.m. Monday at Stadium.
