Keeping Their House Clean, Saints Sweep Sox With 9-3 Win

KEEPING THEIR HOUSE CLEAN, SAINTS SWEEP SOX WITH 9-3 WIN

 

ST. PAUL, MN (July 10, 2014) – At the end of the season nobody asks who you beat.  For the St. Paul Saints they needed to take care of business against the team with the worst record in the American Association.  They did just that with a three game sweep finishing off the Amarillo Sox in a 9-3 victory on Thursday night at Midway Stadium in front of 5,450.

 

            All nine Saints players collected a hit as they pounded out 15 and scored more runs in any game since June 25.  With the game tied at one in the bottom of the fifth the Saints put up three and never looked back.  Willie Cabrera led off with a single to center.  With one out Angelo Songco reached on a single back to the pitcher.  Jake Taylor, who collected four hits on the night, doubled home Cabrera to make it 2-1.  With two outs the former Amarillo Sox player Keith Brachold doubled home a pair to give the Saints a 4-1 lead.

 

            With the Saints leading 4-2 in the seventh they put the game away with a four spot.  Songco led off with a walk.  Taylor singled him to second.  Taylor finished the night 4-5 with a double, RBI and three runs scored.  Joey Becker walked to load the bases.  Brachold came through again with a two-run single to make it 6-2.  He finished the night 2-3 with a double, four RBI and two runs scored.  Dwight Childs then laid down an incredible suicide squeeze as the pitch came towards his head, he bent out of the way and managed to lay the bunt down scoring Becker to make it 7-2.  The final run scored when Evan Bigley hit a fly ball to medium right that was dropped by Cory Patton allowing a run to score and giving the Saints an 8-2 lead.

 

            Saints starter Drew Gay was solid in his second start of the season going 6.0 innings allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits while walking two and striking out one to pick up his second win of the season.

 

            The Saints welcome in the Kansas City T-Bones for the first of a thre game series on Friday night at Midway Stadium at 7:05 p.m.  The Saints send RHP Jeff Shields (4-3, 3.46) to the mound against T-Bones RHP Kyle DeVore (2-2, 4.37).  It is a Night of Unbelievable Fun: The Third Strike presented by the Minnesota Atheists and Freedom From Religion Foundation. The game can be heard on Sports Radio 105 The Ticket.
