Saints Can't Find Clutch Hits Lose 5-3 To Railcats

ST. PAUL, MN July 6, 2014

SAINTS CAN’T FIND CLUTCH HITS LOSE 5-3 TO RAILCATS

 

GARY, IN (July 6, 2014) – One losing streak ended for the St. Paul Saints on Saturday night snapping an 11 game skid at U.S. Steel Yard.  With a chance to win their first series in Gary since August 27-30, a series that got them into the playoffs, the Saints went 1-13 with runners in scoring position and lost 5-3 to the Gary SouthShore Railcats on Sunday afternoon.

 

            The Saints jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first when Sam Maus reached on an error by shortstop Ryan Brockett.  Willie Cabrera, who had gone 14 games without an RBI, roped a double to straight away center scoring Maus.  Cabrera would go 3-4 with two doubles and an RBI.

 

            The lead didn’t last long as the Railcats put up three unearned runs in the second.  With one out Josh Romanski singled to right.  Brockett hit a grounder to third that Jared McDonald backhanded, but his throw to second was in the dirt allowing Romanski to reach safely.  The error would prove costly because with two outs and runners at the corners Danny Pulfer tied the game with a single and Drew Martinez tripled home a pair to make it 3-1.

 

            In the fifth the Saints got to within 3-2 when Joey Becker singled, Dwight Childs singled him to third and McDonald’s ground out produced a run.

 

            The Railcats added to their lead in the seventh when Ryan Babineau walked and Wally Backman Jr. doubled him home to make it 4-2. With two outs Romanski singled home Backman to make it 5-2.

 

            The Saints got to within two in the eighth, but couldn’t do more with the bases loaded and nobody out.  After three straight singles loaded the bases, Angelo Songco struck out and pinch hitter Evan Bigley brought home a run with a sacrifice fly.  Joe Bonfe would load the bases again when he reached on Brockett’s second error of the game. Becker, however, grounded out to second to end the inning.

 

            The Saints had runners in scoring position with less than two outs in six of the nine innings and could only produce one run, none of them coming from a base hit.

 

            The Saints take Monday off and return to action on Tuesday night at Midway Stadium in the first of a three game series against the Amarillo Sox.  The Saints send RHP Anthony Claggett (4-4, 2.40) to the mound.  We spill the beans about biodiesel with the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB and in the ballpark on 87.9 FM.
