Saints Limp Into All-Star Break With 13-5 Loss To RedHawks

ST. PAUL, MN July 27, 2014



FARGO, ND (July 27, 2014) – Maybe the All-Star break is coming at just the right time for the St. Paul Saints.  Despite the recent eight game winning streak the Saints have lost their last two at the hands of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks, including a 13-5 thumping on Sunday afternoon at Newman Outdoor Field.


            The RedHawks jumped all over Saints starter Robert Coe in the second inning and never looked back.  They sent 11 men to the plate and scored eight runs despite just four hits, but two of them left the ballpark.  Eric Castro led off with a walk and Nic Jackson followed with a two-run homer to right, his seventh of the season, to give the RedHawks a 2-0 lead.  Petey Paramore followed the home run with a walk and with one out Sawyer Carroll singled him to third. The RedHawks made it 3-0 on an RBI single by Anthony Kaskadden.  A walk to Zach Penprase loaded the bases and Ronnie Bourquin followed with a walk to force in a run and make it 4-0.  CJ Retherford then crushed one over the right field wall for a grand slam, his eighth of the season, giving the RedHawks an 8-0 lead.


            The Saints could never climb out of the hole, but did get two back in the fifth.  Jared McDonald led off with a solo homer to right, his first with the Saints.  With one out Joey Becker reached on an infield single and scored on a double by Dwight Childs to make it 8-2.


            The RedHawks answered right back in the bottom of the inning when Brandon Tripp reached on a one out single, Carroll walked and Kaskadden made it 9-2 with an RBI single.  Coe departed the game for reliever Drew Gay.  He was greeted by an RBI double from Penprase to make it 10-2.  Coe went 4.1 innings allowing 10 runs on nine hits while walking five and striking out three.  The 10 runs were one shy of tying a single-game franchise record by a pitcher.


            With the Saints trailing 10-3 in the seventh Henry Wrigley hit a two-run homer, his 14th of the season, to make it 10-5.


            Willie Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a single in the fourth and Sam Maus reached base safely for the 28th consecutive game with two walks in the game.


            The Saints will now have three days off for the All-Star break which will take place Tuesday evening in Winnipeg.  The Saints will be represented by infielder Wrigley, outfielder Evan Bigley, starting pitcher Anthony Claggett and closer Dan Sattler.  The Saints return to action on Thurssday evening in game one of a three game series against the Wichita Wingnuts at 7:05 p.m. at Midway Stadium.  It is German Night with a post-game fireworks show presented by Mobil Super.  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB and in the ballpark on 87.9 FM.
