How to excute an inline SQL from .NET

I have a SQL statement that I need to excute from my C# code, I know I have to set the select command to the text , but I also need to set the use statement indicating which database to use.

The language is C# and the database is SQL Server 2005

Here is my SQL

use dbArea
delete LogDetail
where ID in (
select ID from LogSummary
where Date = '1/18/2008'
and Area = 'EAST'
