Broken Record: Saints Shutout For Third Straight Night, Lose 3-0 To Goldeyes

ST. PAUL, MN August 22, 2013

ST. PAUL, MN (August 22, 2013) – The St. Paul Saints lost their first series at Midway Stadium this season by bowing to the Winnipeg Goldeyes 3-0 in front of 4,110 fans on Thursday night.  The Saints were defeated in complete game shutout fashion for the third consecutive time by Goldeyes starting pitching, the first time that has occurred in franchise history.

            The Goldeyes scored first in the second inning when Ray Sadler walked with one out, moved to second on a single by Josh Mazzola, and then raced home on an RBI single by Luis Alen. 

            The Goldeyes extended the lead by knocking a pair of home runs off of Saints starter Anthony Claggett in the fourth.  First, it was Mazzola going deep for his 14th long ball of the year to make it 2-0. The Goldeyes shortstop finished the night perfect at the plate, going 4-4 with a home run, an RBI and a stolen base.  Two batters later, Luis Alen drilled a pitch over the wall in left to make it 3-0 Winnipeg.  The blast was Alen’s fourth of the year and part of his 2-4, two RBI evening. 

            After watching his fellow starting pitchers Chris Salamida and Matthew Rusch throw impressive games the last two nights, Jason Jarvis did his best to equal their performances.  The right-hander threw a complete game shutout, giving up five hits while walking two and striking out a pair. 

            Claggett was the tough-luck loser pitching all nine innings himself, allowing three runs on eight hits with a walk and three strikeouts.  The complete game was Claggett’s second of the season, neither resulting in a win. The Saints have now thrown seven complete games, four of which have resulted in losses.  The last time that Saints pitchers threw seven complete games in a season was 2008.  The total ties them for fifth most in franchise history.

            The Saints get a fresh start when they welcome the Gary SouthShore RailCats to town Friday night for a 7:05 p.m. series opener.  LHP Cole Nelson (5-2, 2.52) goes for St. Paul and RHP Morgan Coombs (5-2, 4.78) goes for Gary.  It is Comic book Night at Midway Stadium with the first 2,000 fans receiving comic books.  The game is internet only and can be listened to on saintsbaseball.com courtesy of the Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network.
