It's A First, Saints Lose Opening Homestand Game, 10-3 To Railcats In Game 2 Of Doubleheader

ST. PAUL, MN May 21, 2017

There is a first time for everything.  The St. Paul Saints were 11-0 in opening series at CHS Field during the first two plus years of the ballpark.  That unblemished mark came to a crashing halt on Sunday evening in the second game of a doubleheader as the Saints lost 10-3 to the Gary SouthShore Railcats in front of 7,511.

 

          Over the last two seasons the Saints had trailed for a total of just two innings against the Railcats during opening homestand clashes.  That all changed in game two when the Railcats jumped on Saints starter Jason Creasy for five runs in the third.  Ryan Fitzgerald led off with a triple to left and John Holland’s RBI groundout made it 1-0.  The next six hitters reached off Creasy with a walk, RBI double, walk, RBI single, two-run single and another single that chased Creasy and the Saints trailed 5-0.

 

          The Saints answered in the bottom half as Brady Burzynski led off with a walk.  With two outs Tony Thomas singled and Anthony Gallas made it 5-1 with an RBI double.  Thomas scored on a wild pitch and Danny Oh made it 5-3 with an RBI single.

 

          The Railcats, however, didn’t stop scoring as they tacked on a run in the fourth when John Holland walked and moved to second on a single from Goodman.  Holland then stole third and would score when Goodman stole second and Jack Goihl’s throw glanced off the sliding Goodman and went into shallow left-center to make it 6-3.

 

          In the fifth the Railcats added two more when Frank Martinez doubled and, with one out, Alex Crosby was hit by a pitch.  With two outs Holland and Goodman had RBI singles to make it 8-3.

 

          In the sixth the Railcats got two more on an RBI double from Martinez and an RBI single by Jaime Del Valle.

 

          The Saints head out on their first roadtrip, a three game series at Sioux Falls Stadium against the Sioux Falls Canaries.  The Saints will start RHP Benji Waite (NR) against Canaries RHP Troy Marks (NR).  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB.
