Five Run Fifth Sends Saints To Season Tying High Fifth Straight Loss, 5-3

ST. PAUL, MN August 16, 2017

Jason Hoppe cruised through the first four innings.  He retired 10 in a row with two outs in the fifth, but the Winnipeg Goldeyes continued to flex their muscles against the St. Paul Saints.  A five run fifth was enough to send the Saints to their season tying high fifth straight loss, 5-3 to the Goldeyes on Wednesday night at Shaw Park.  The loss sends the Saints to 42-40, 8.0 games behind the Goldeyes with 18 games left.

 

          Hoppe allowed just two base runners through the first four innings, a two out single to Josh Romanski in the first, whom he would pick off, and a one out single in the second to Shaw Pleffner.  After that Hoppe retired 10 in a row.  With the Saints leading 2-0 and two outs in the fifth, however, Wes Darvill lined a single to center.  With the count 0-2 on Mason Katz the Saints pitched out and guessed right as Darvill took off.  Tanner Lubach’s throw to second was on the third base side of the bag and Darvill slid in safely.  With the count 2-2 on Katz he slugged a two-run homer to left, his 13th of the season, tying the game at two.  Hoppe then walked Jordan Ebert and gave up a single to Andrew Sohn.  David Rohm crushed a three-run homer to left, his fourth of the season, and that proved to be the difference as the Goldeyes took a 5-2 lead.  Hoppe went 5.0 innings allowing five runs on seven hits while walking one.

 

          The Saints offense, held to nine hits total in the first two games, came out swinging against Charle Rosario, who the Goldeyes got in a trade a week ago.  In the third Mitch Delfino singled with two outs, stole second and scored on Nate Hanson’s single to right making it 1-0.

 

          In the fourth the Saints used speed again to plate a run.  Anthony Gallas reached on a fielding error by the third baseman Darvill.  Gallas swiped second and scored on a Tony Thomas RBI single giving the Saints a 2-0 lead.

 

          The Saints collected 10 hits in the game, one more than the first two games combined, but couldn’t capitalize again until the ninth when Tanner Lubach hit a solo homer to left, his third of the season.

 

          The five game losing streak ties their longest of the season, from July 15-21.

 

          The same two teams meet in the finale of the four game series on Thursday night at Shaw Park.  The Saints are TBA while the Goldeyes send LHP Zack Dodson (5-5, 5.13) to the mound.  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB.
