Saints Dig Early Hole, Swept By Wingnuts, Lose 7-3

Saints Dig Early Hole, Swept By Wingnuts, Lose 7-3

June 28, 2012 at 11:05 PM

WICHITA, KS (June 28, 2012) – The St. Paul Saints spotted the Wichita Wingnuts a six run lead early and, despite cutting the deficit in half, couldn’t quite come back losing 7-3 on Thursday night at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium as they were swept in the three game series and have now lost four straight.

 

            The Wingnuts used the momentum from a six run ninth inning on Wednesday night and came out early and put up a crooked number.  They scored four runs in the second and it started with an infield single by Steve Carrillo.  Justin Tellam followed with a walk.  After a sacrifice bunt by Jared McDonald moved the runners up Mike Conroy singled home the first run to make it 1-0.  Ryan Khoury made it 2-0 with a sacrifice fly.  Jake Kahaulelio made it 3-0 with an RBI single and he would later score in the inning on a passed ball to make it 4-0.

 

            The Wingnuts continued their relentless attack in the third when McDonald roped an RBI single and Kahaulelio walked with the bases loaded to make it 6-0.

 

            The Saints didn’t roll over, however, and tried to mount a comeback.  In the fourth Jose Hernandez doubled, moved to third on a ground out and scored when Ole Sheldon struck out, but the ball skipped away from the catcher Justin Tellam for a wild pitch allowing Hernandez to score making it 6-1.

 

            In the fifth Adam Frost tripled with two outs and then Hernandez crushed a two-run homer, his fourth of the season, to make it 6-3.  Frost finished the night 3-4, falling a homer shy of the cycle with a run scored while Hernandez went 2-4 with a double and homer, two RBI and two runs scored.  Jim Rapoport followed with a triple, but was left stranded when Sheldon flew out to right.  That was as close as the Saints would get.

 

            The Saints now head to Newman Outdoor Field and begin a three game series against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Friday night at 7:02 p.m.  The Saints send RHP Matt Schuld (0-1, 3.60) to the mound against RedHawks RHP Paul Burnside (4-3, 2.66).  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB.
