Saints dump Fish 14-7

  • Print

The St. Paul Saints scored early and often to dump the Winnipeg Goldeyes in American Association action in Minnesota Wednesday.

The Goldeyes (60-35) fell 14-7 to the Saints (48-46) in front of 5,888 fans at Midway Stadium.

The Saints scored once in the first inning and were up 5-0 after two.

 In the fifth inning, the Fish batters found their rhythm and scored seven runs to take a 7-5 lead. Josh Mazzola clubbed a grand slam on a 3-2 count and plated Donnie Webb, Reggie Abercrombie and Casey Haerther.

The Saints answered back in the bottom of the same inning with a two-run home run by Jake Taylor to tie the game. Another two-run homer in the sixth allowed the hometown team to retake a lead they would not relinquish again. They added three runs in the seventh and two more an inning later.

The teams will wrap up their three-game series Thursday at 7 p.m. in what will be the last Saints game at Midway Stadium. The team will play in a new downtown ballpark next season.

The Goldeyes will then return home to open their final series of the regular season, a four-game set against the Gary SouthShore RailCats that gets underway Friday at 7 p.m.
