Brandon Tripp Follows Cabrera's Lead As Saints Win Game One of Doubleheader 4-3

ST. PAUL, MN July 19, 2013

ST. PAUL, MN (July 19, 2013) – Call them the hamstring bash brothers.  Willie Cabrera provided the pop Thursday night after returning from one game off with an injured hamstring.  Brandon Tripp returned in game one of the doubleheader on Friday night from his injured hamstring and provided the power as the Saints defeated the Grand Prairie AirHogs 4-3 at Midway Stadium.

 

            With the game scoreless in the second inning Cabrera led off with a single.  Tripp stepped to the plate and crushed one over the right-center field wall, a two-run shot, his 15th of the season to give the Saints a 2-0 lead.

 

            In the fourth the AirHogs got one back as Brandon Pinckney led off with a walk, advanced to second on a groundout and scored on an RBI double from Ryan Pineda to make it 2-1.

 

            The Saints didn’t waste any time answering when Brad Boyer led off the bottom of the fourth with a single.  Cabrera doubled him home to make it 3-1 and Tripp followed with an RBI single to make it 4-1.  Cabrera finished the game 2-3 with a double, RBI and two runs scored while Tripp was 2-3 with a homer, three RBI and a run scored.

 

            With the Saints leading 4-2 in the seventh inning, of a game scheduled for seven, Matt Meyer came in to close it out.  Austin Newell led off with a bunt single.  With two outs pinch hitters Kenny Held doubled him home to make it a one run game.  After an intentional walk to Pinckney, Meyer got pinch hitter Yasutsugu Nishimoto to ground into a fielder’s choice to end the game.
