Bordering On The Absurd Saints SHutout Goldeyes 2-0

ST. PAUL, MN June 16, 2014

BORDERING ON THE ABSURD SAINTS SHUTOUT GOLDEYES 2-0

 

WINNIPEG, MB (June 13, 2014) – Apparently the St. Paul Saints are at their best when they have an early wake up call for travel.  Two weeks ago they flew from the east coast back home, played that night and shutout the Sioux City Explorers.  On Friday night they spent 13 hours on a bus, waited four hours at the border and had to leave two players back in the U.S.  None of that mattered as they blanked the Winnipeg Goldeyes 2-0 at Shaw Park.

 

            The Saints faced the top pitcher in the league in Kyle Anderson, who entered played with a 0.91 ERA.  It was a pitcher’s duel all night long, one that Saints starter Nick Barnese proved to be a little better. 

 

            Anderson retired the first 11 men he faced until a single by Evan Bigley with two outs in the fourth. 

 

            In the fifth Joey Becker led off with a single to center.  He moved to second on a ground out by Jake Taylor.  With two outs Dwight Childs singled to right that drove home Becker to make it 1-0.

 

            In the eighth the Saints tacked on an insurance run when Childs led off with a single.  Sam Maus sacrificed him to second and Childs scored on a Devin Thaut double.  Anderson lasted 7.1 innings allowing two runs on six hits while striking out five.

 

            Those runs were all Barnese needed.  The biggest trouble he ran into came in the second when Josh Mazzola and Reggie Abercrombie singled with two outs.  Barnese, however, got Haerther to line out to third to end the inning.

 

            In the seventh Barnese hit Abercrombie with two outs and he went to third on a single by Haerther. Ryan Pineda popped out to end the inning.  Barnese went 7.0 shutout innings allowing six hits while striking out three.

 

            The bullpen of Mikey Mehlich and Dan Sattler did the rest.  Mehlich pitched a perfect eighth and Sattler wiggled out of a first and second one out jame to end the game.

 

            The same two teams  meet in game two of the three game series on Saturday evening at 6:00 p.m.  The Saints send RHP Jeff Shields (3-1, 4.75) to the mound against Goldeyes RHP Chandler Barnard (1-0, 5.06).  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB.
