Saints Drop First Exhibition Game of Season 5-1 to RedHawks

May 07, 2012 at 11:23 AM

FARGO, N.D. – The St. Paul Saints dropped their first exhibition game of the season, a 5-1 exhibition loss to the Fargo Moorhead RedHawks in front of 1,942 fans on Sunday night at Newman Outdoor Field. 

 

The RedHawks pitching staff held St. Paul to four hits in a game that was played through the top of the 10th inning in order for RedHawks coaches to see as many pitchers as possible in the pre-season opener.  Kenn Kasparek, who was the second Fargo-Moorhead pitcher in the game, picked up the victory with 2.0 innings of hitless baseball.  He recorded three strikeouts.

 

Tony Butler started the game and also struck out three batters in 2.0 innings pitched.  Other pitchers seeing action tonight were Tyler Herron (2.0 IP, 0 H), RHP Wade Morrison (2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 K), Ryne Nelson (1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K) and Justin Klipp (1.0 IP, 0 H).

 

The RedHawks got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third on Zach Penprase’s two-run single.  Ryan Delgado drilled an RBI double in the sixth inning and a two-run home run in the eighth inning and finished the night 2-for-4 with three RBIs.  Enrique Cruz was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored.

 

St. Paul scored their lone run of the game in the ninth inning on Don Dipetta’s sacrifice fly that brought home Jose Hernandez.  St. Paul starter Danny Gutierrez allowed two runs on three hits in 3.0 innings and was tagged with the loss.  He struck out four batters and walked one.

 

The Saints continue their exhibition roadtrip as they head further north and take on the Winnipeg Goldeyes at Shaw Park on Monday night at 7:00 p.m.
