Taylor's Blast Gives Saints 5-2 Win Over Goldeyes In Game 1 of Double Header

ST. PAUL, MN July 16, 2014

TAYLOR’S BLAST CARRIES SAINTS TO 5-2 WIN OVER GOLDEYES IN GAME 1 OF DOUBLE HEADER

 

WINNIPEG, MB (July 16, 2014) – The St. Paul Saints are making a habit of coming from behind.  It might not be ideal, but the confidence they have shown when trailing has carried them to an impressive week long stretch.  On Wednesday evening in game one of a double header the Saints came from 2-0 down to defeat the Winnipeg Goldeyes 5-2 at Shaw Park.

 

            With the Saints trailing 2-0 in the third Jared McDonald led off with a double to right-center.  Devin Thaut knocked him home with a single to left-center to make it 2-1.

 

            That same combination tied the game in the fifth when McDonald walked and scored on Thaut’s RBI double.  Thaut finished the game 2-4 with two RBI.

 

            The big blow came in the sixth by Taylor.  With one out Angelo Songco singled and moved to second on Joe Bonfe’s single.  That’s when Taylor drilled a 2-1 pitch over the left-center field wall, his second of the season, to give the Saints a three-run cushion.  Taylor finished the game 2-3 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored.

 

            That was more than enough for reliever Mikey Mehlich who pitched a perfect 1.2 innings of relief to earn his first save of the season.
