Saints Play Long Ball In Defeating North Star League All-Stars

ST. PAUL, MN May 11, 2013

ST. PAUL, MN (May 11, 2013) – Prior to the game between the St. Paul Saints and North Star League All-Stars the two teams competed in a home run derby.  The Saints continued the derby well into the game hitting nine home runs en route to an 18-1 victory on Saturday afternoon at Municipal Stadium in Central Park at Delano.

 

            The Saints got home runs from seven of their nine hitters including two from Jose Hernandez and Joey Becker.  All 18 runs were scored with the long ball and it started with a two-run homer from Hernandez in the first inning.

 

            The Saints blew the game wide open in the third with a seven spot as Hernandez hit his second of the game, a two-run blast to left-center.  Willie Cabrera followed that up with a solo shot to left giving the Saints a 5-0 lead.  Jordan Tripp and Dwight Childs also added two-run homers in the inning as the Saints took a 9-0 lead.

 

            Every Saints player collected a hit with Dan Kaczrowski, Becker and Childs each collecting three.

 

            Former Major Leaguer Mark Hamburger got the start and looked overpowering in his 5.0 innings of work.  The first seven outs he recorded came by way of the strikeout and he allowed just one hit, while walking one on top of his 11 strikeouts.

 

            The Saints got some work in for their relievers with Matt Meyer pitching 2.0 scoreless innings while striking out three and Mikey Mehlich tossing 2.0 innings allowing one run while striking out three.

 

            The Saints play their second game of the day at 7:35 p.m. at Midway Stadium against the Gary SouthShore Railcats.  It is the Umpireless Game presented by Hamline University.
