Burgamy Bash Gives Saints 5-3 Walk-Off Win In Extras

ST. PAUL, MN August 11, 2013

ST. PAUL, MN (August 11, 2013) – Brian Burgamy drilled a first pitch offering from Jimmer Kennedy over the wall in right field to give the St. Paul Saints a 5-3 walk-off win in the 12th inning in front of 5,030 at Midway Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The game was the longest of the season in both innings and time as it took 3:50 to complete. 

            The Saints were the first team to score as they put up a pair of runs in the second inning against Exlporers starting pitcher Ryan Lucero.  Willie Cabrera began the inning with a single before Brandon Tripp was hit by a pitch and Ole Sheldon walked.  Joey Becker followed with a two RBI single to give St. Paul a 2-0 lead. 

            The Explorers responded immediately in the top of the third against Saints starter Mike Koons when Eliezer Mesa and Sam Judah singled to put two on base with one out.  Austin Gallagher then ripped a two-run double to tie the score. 

            Each team added a run in the fourth inning courtesy of a solo home run.  Sioux City’s came from Peter Barrows, while the Saints Brandon Tripp knocked his 17th of the season.

            After that point each team’s pitching was superb.  The next seven innings were scoreless for both teams as the Saints managed just two hits in that span, while Sioux City mustered five. 

            With the score still tied at three in the bottom of the 12th inning Dan Kaczrowski walked to start the frame.  Jose Hernandez struck out after failing to execute a sacrifice bunt and that set the stage for Burgamy’s game-winning smash.  Burgamy now has two hits for the Saints in three games, both leaving the park. 

            The Saints bullpen, consisting of Mikey Mehlich, Matt Meyer, Jon Plefka, and Dylan Thomas, combined to work a total of 7.1 innings of scoreless relief.  Thomas, who pitched a scoreless 12th, earned his first professional victory.

            Ole Sheldon, who was honored prior to the game, played his final game of the season as he leaves to take a teaching job in Florida, went 2-2 and reaching base safely in all four trips to the plate.  Sheldon extended his streak of games reaching base safely to 21.

            The Saints begin a four-game set with the Sioux Falls Canaries tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m by sending RHP Anthony Claggett (7-4, 3.71) to the mound to meet RHP Kyle Ruwe (9-6, 3.85).  It is a Single Shade of Gray, What Happens on the Road Stays on the Road.  The game can be heard on 1220 AM and in the ballpark on 87.9 FM.
