Saints Win Sloppy Exhibition Game 5-1 Over Canaries

ST. PAUL, MN May 16, 2016

Exhibition games are played to work out the off-season kinks.  Both teams needed to smooth a few things out on Monday night at CHS Field, but the St. Paul Saints took advantage of four Sioux Falls Canaries errors to defeat the visitors 5-1 in front of 4,579.

 

          In the second inning Nate Hanson reached on a fielding error by third baseman Ozney Guillen.  Willie Argo followed with a single to left to put runners at first and second.  After a ground out moved the runners over, Tony Caldwell’s infield single plated Hanson to give the Saints a 1-0 lead.  Alonzo Harris made it 2-0 with a sacrifice fly.

 

          In the third the Canaries scored their lone run when Ethan Chapman, who reached on a fielder’s choice, advanced to second on a passed ball, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly from Cameron Garfield.  Saints starter Jeff Shields went 4.0 innings allowing one unearned run on two hits while striking out three.

 

          The Saints added two more in the third when Michael Burgess led off with a double and scored on a one out triple by Tony Thomas to give the Saints a 3-1 lead.  With two outs, and Thomas at third, Argo’s grounder to short was thrown away by Jermoe Pena allowing Thomas to score making it 4-1.

 

          The Saints finished the scoring in the fourth when Breland Almadova doubled with one out and scored on an RBI single by Thomas.  Thomas finished the night 2-3 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored.

 

          The Saints bullpen of Caleb Thielbar, Kody Knaus, Cody Wheeler, Connor Goldsmith and Ryan Rodebaugh were solid going 5.0 scoreless innings allowing three hits while striking out five.

 

          The Saints and Canaries will wrap-up the exhibition season on Tuesday morning at 11:35 a.m. at CHS Field.  The Saints open the 2016 season on Thursday night at CHS Field against the Gary SouthShore Railcats at 7:05 p.m.
