Saints Lose To Former Teammate 6-3, Snapping Five Game Winning Streak

ST. PAUL, MN June 30, 2013

SIOUX FALLS, SD (June 30, 2013) – Last season pitcher Kyle Ruwe was sitting on his couch in Florida when the St. Paul Saints gave him a call.  He was dominant in his nine starts for the club posting the fifth best single-season ERA in franchise history.  On Sunday afternoon he reminded them of what they had by pitching 8.0 solid innings as the Saints lost 6-3 to the Sioux Falls Canaries at Sioux Falls Stadium to snap their five game losing streak.


            The Saints jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second when Ole Sheldon doubled and scored on a single by Jose Hernandez, but that would be all they would get against Ruwe. The two mini jams Ruwe got in during the afternoon he managed to make the pitches to end the innings.  In the sixth with runners at first and third and two outs Ruwe got Willie Cabrera to ground out to end the inning.  In the eighth in the same situation he got Brad Boyer to fly out to end the inning.  Ruwe went 8.0 innings allowing one run on eight hits while walking one and striking out one.


            The Canaries, who had lost seven straight, managed to get to Saints starter Wes Roemer in the fourth.  Corey Morales led off with an infield single to third.  He moved to second on a single by Marcos Rodriguez.  Jared Clark tied the game at one with an RBI single.  Tim Pahuta then deposited one over the right field wall for a three-run homer, his 13th of the season, to make it 4-1.


            In the fifth Nick Van Stratten doubled and moved to third on a single by Morales.  A double play ground out by Rodriguez scored the run to make it 5-1.  Roemer went 6.0 innings allowing five runs on nine hits while striking out two.


            With the Saints trailing 6-1 in the ninth Brandon Tripp walked with one out and moved to third on a single by Sheldon.  Sheldon finished the day 3-4 with a double and two runs scored.  Jose Hernandez walked to load the bases.  With two outs Dan Kaczrowski hit a grounder to second that looked like it would end the game, but Stephen King had it go off his glove into shallow center which scored a pair of runs.  Adam Frost then hit a sinking fly ball to left that JP Ramirez slid for and made the catch end the game.


            The Saints have Monday off before heading to Shaw Park to take on the Winnipeg Goldeyes on Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. in the first of a four game series.  The Saints send RHP Luke Anderson (2-2, 5.77) to the mound against Goldeyes RHP Matt Rusch (4-3, 3.81).  The game can be heard on Club 1220 AM.
