Saints Pitchers Dominate In 6-1 Exhibition Win

ST. PAUL, MN May 4, 2014

SAINTS PITCHERS DOMINATE IN 6-1 EXHIBITION WIN

 

FARGO, ND (May 4, 2014) – The exhibition season got underway on Sunday evening for the St. Paul Saints and their pitchers were in mid-season form.  Five hurlers combined to strike out 14 Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in a 6-1 victory at Newman Outdoor Field.

 

            The Saints held the RedHawks hitless until two were out in the fifth and gave up the lone run in the eighth, but for most of the evening the Saints pitching staff was in control.  Dan Sattler, who pitched in seven games for the Saints in 2012 before having his contract purchased by the Minnesota Twins, proved he may be fully healed from Tommy John surgery towards the end of 2012.  He hurled 2.0 hitless, shutout innings while walking two and fanning four.  Anthony Claggett, who finished third in the American Association in ERA with the Saints last season, tossed 3.0 shutout innings giving up one hit while walking two and striking out two.  Jon Plefka, 1.0 inning and two strike outs, Dustin Klabunde, 1.0 inning, one walk and three strikeouts and Paul Burnside, 2.0 innings allowing one run on two hits while walking two and striking out three, got in some work as well.

 

            The bottom four of the Saints lineup collected nine of the 10 hits with Angelo Songco and Joe Bonfe each collecting three hits.  Bonfe knocked in a pair and scored three runs.  The two connected for the first run of the game in the second when Songco doubled and Bonfe drove him home with a single to give the Saints a 1-0 lead.

 

            The score remained that way until the fifth when Songco singled, was erased on a fielder’s choice by Bonfe, who then moved to third on Joey Becker’s ground rule double.  Jake Taylor, who finished the night 2-2, drove in both runs with a single to give the Saints a 3-0 lead.

 

            In the seventh Songco led off with a single and scored on Bonfe’s triple giving the Saints a 4-0 lead.  Bonfe scored on Becker’s RBI groundout.

 

            The same two teams continue their three game exhibition series on Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. at Newman Outdoor Field.
