Free Fall Continues As Saints Lose Sixth Straight, 5-3 To RedHawks

ST. PAUL, MN June 24, 2014

FREE FALL CONTINUES AS SAINTS LOSE 6TH STRAIGHT 5-3 TO REDHAWKS

 

FARGO, ND (June 24, 2014) – Each night for the past week it’s been something different that has cost the St. Paul Saints during their six game losing streak.  On Tuesday night at Newman Outdoor Field the inability to get a big hit with runners in scoring position and a costly error that extended the sixth inning was the downfall as the Saints lost 5-3, tying their sixth longest losing streak in franchise history.

 

            With the game tied at two in the sixth and nobody on and two outs Tim Alberts reached on a single that went off the glove of a backhanded try by third baseman Joe Bonfe.  The next hitter, Brandon Newton, hit a grounder to second baseman Jake Taylor.  He couldn’t field the ball cleanly and his throw to first was high allowing Newton to reach on the error.  Anthony Kaskadden made the Saints pay with a two-run double to left giving the RedHawks a 4-2 lead.  Zach Penprase followed that with an RBI single to make it 5-2.

 

            The Saints would get one back in the eighth when Willie Cabrera led off with a single.  With one out he moved to second on a single by Joey Becker.  A passed ball moved the two runners up and a ground out by Dwight Childs scored Cabrera.  Taylor would strike out to end the inning as the Saints stranded 11 on the night, six in scoring position.

 

            The RedHawks jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second when Nic Jackson singled.  With two outs and Jackson at second Newton knocked him home with a single.

 

            The Saints wasted little time in tying the game as Evan Bigley walked with two outs in the third.  He stole second and Henry Wrigley, who entered play hitting .480 with runners in scoring position and two outs, doubled to right-center scoring Bigley to tie the game at one.

 

            In the fourth Angelo Songco and Becker had back-to-back doubles, the latter giving the Saints a 2-1 lead.

 

            In the fifth the RedHawks tied the game when Newton singled, moved to second on a sacrifice by Kaskadden, advanced to third on a ground out and scored on a wild pitch.

 

            Saints starter Nick Barnese worked 6.0 innings allowing five runs (two earned) on nine hits while walking two and striking out six.  The last time the Saints lost six straight was August 20-24 of last season.

 

            The same two teams meet in game three of the four game series on Wednesday night at 7:02 p.m.  The Saints send RHP R.J. Seidel (0-0, 12.27) to the mound against RedHawks RHP Danny Gutierrez (2-3. 4.95).  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB.
