SAINTS AREN’T MEAT EATERS IN 5-2 LOSS TO T-BONES IN GAME 1 OF DOUBLEHEADER
KANSAS CITY, KS (August 29, 2014) – In their final series of the season Ben Hughes didn’t have an answer for two former Major Leaguers as the St. Paul Saints dropped the first game of a doubleheader to the Kansas City T-Bones 5-2 on Friday evening at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.
Ray Sadler, who played three games for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2008, had Hughes’ number. In the second he tripled off the center field wall and scored on a groundout by Nick Schwaner to give the T-Bones a 1-0 lead.
The Saints tied the game in the fourth when Angelo Songco singled and moved to second when Jake Taylor walked. The runners advanced on a groundout and Songco scored on a wild pitch.
Sadler wreaked havoc in the bottom of the fourth. After a walk to Matt Padgett to lead off the inning, Sadler doubled him home to give the T-Bones a 2-1 lead. He would later score on a single by Bryan Sabatella to make it 3-1.
In the fifth Brian Erie led off with a double and, with one out, T.J. Mittelstaedt walked. That gave Danny Richar, who played 79 games in the Majors from 2007-09 with the Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati Reds, an opportunity to triple home both runners and give the T-Bones a 5-1 lead.
The Saints drew a little closer in the sixth when Songco singled with one out, moved to second on a groundout and scored on a single by Joe Bonfe.
