Saints Six Game Win Streak Comes To A Halt In 7-2 Loss To T-Bones

ST. PAUL, MN June 8, 2017

The St. Paul Saints aren’t in Texas anymore.  After beating up on two bottom feeder teams in the American Association they ran into a Kansas City T-Bones team with some power.  Mistakes early on and two home runs proved costly as the Saints had their six game winning streak snapped 7-2 on Thursday night at the hands of the T-Bones.  The loss dropped the Saints to 8-3 on their 13-game roadtrip and 14-7 on the season, but maintained their 1.0 game lead in the North Division.

 

          In the first Omar Garcia led off with a single off of spot starter Corey Williams.  Williams’ pickoff attempt went awry allowing Garcia to advance to third.  An RBI single by Zach Walters with two outs gave the T-Bones a 1-0 lead.

 

          In the third two more errors proved costly.  Garcia led off the inning with a hit by pitch.  Lemon then hit a grounder to third and Nate Hanson’s throw was low and Brady Shoemaker couldn’t grab it as the error was charged to Hanson putting runners at first and second.  Kevin Keyes walked to load the bases.  Walters then hit a potential double play ball to short and Jon Kristoffersen got the lead runner at second, but Tony Thomas’ throw to first was a touch high and got away from Shoemaker allowing two runs to score, making it 3-0.

 

          In the fourth the big bats came out for the T-Bones after Chantz Mack walked and Patrick Brady singled.  Leo Rojas then drilled a three-run homer to left, his third of the season, to make it 6-0.  The very next batter, Eddie Newton, deposited one over the left field wall, his first of the year, to make it 7-0.

 

          The Saints couldn’t do much offensively against former Major Leaguer Scott Carroll until the fifth.  Former T-Bone Anthony Gallas tripled to right-center and scored on a groundout by Tim Colwell that made it 7-1.

 

          The Saints got their only other run in the sixth when Gallas singled and scored on a two out double by Tony Caldwell.  Gallas finished the night 3-4 with a triple and two runs scored.

 

          The Saints bullpen was solid as Ken Frosch tossed 3.0 scoreless innings allowing three hits and Connor Little pitched a perfect inning of relief.

 

          The same two teams meet in the second game of the three game series on Friday night at 7:05 p.m.  The Saints are TBA while the T-Bones send RHP Calvin Drummond (0-1, 5.60).  The game can be heard on Club 1220 KLBB.
