SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 3, 2020) – For one night the final score didn’t matter. For one night you could overlook the four home runs allowed, the two errors, and the loss. Because the most important thing on Friday night at Sioux Falls Stadium was the fact baseball was played. The defending American Association champs, the St. Paul Saints, played their first of 24 games against their hubmates, the Sioux Falls Canaries, and fell 9-4 in front of 1,522.

 

Saints starter Eddie Medina was bitten by the long ball, giving up a career tying three home runs, with the first coming off his former teammate from a year ago, Jabari Henry. After Andrew Ely led off by reaching on a throwing error from catcher Mitch Ghelfi, Henry walloped a two-run homer down the left field line to give the Canaries a 2-0 lead.

 

In the third, another error cost the Saints a run following a Henry leadoff single. Alay Lago chopped one slowly to second that Josh Allen bobbled and his throw to second went awry allowing Henry to take third. Damek Tomscha’s ground out to third scored Henry making it 3-0.

 

The Saints would claw back tying the game at three as they put up their first runs of the season in the fourth. With one out, Chris Chinea singled and moved to second on an Allen single. With two outs Ghelfi roped a two-run double to left making it 3-2.

 

In the fifth, the Saints scored a run without the aid of a hit when Max M

i>ST. PAUL, MN (July 4, 2020) – The last time the St. Paul Saints won a game there was a euphoric celebration on the mound followed by a trophy celebration. On Saturday night the celebration was much more subdued, almost non-existent. There was no dog pile, no jumping up and down and, as a matter of fact, there was not even a handshake line because of social distancing rules. The Saints scored in seven of nine innings, got a stellar starting performance from Matt Solter, and got their first win of the season with a 14-3 thrashing of the Sioux Falls Canaries at Sioux Falls Stadium.

 

The Saints jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the second and never looked back. John Silviano got it started with a solo blast to left, his first of the season, making it 1-0. Chris Chinea followed with a double and Josh Allen knocked him in with a single making it 2-0. With one out, Sebastian Zawada clubbed a two-run homer to left, his first of the season, making it 4-0. Zawada finished the night 2-3 with a double, home run, three RBI, and three runs scored.

 

From there the Saints capitalized on Canaries miscues scoring four straight unearned runs. With two outs in the fourth Chesny Young singled and Zawada doubled him to third. Connor Justus then hit a grounder than went under the glove of third baseman Ryan Long for a two-run error giving the Saints a 6-0 lead.

 

A lead off fielding error in the fifth by second baseman Alay Lago came

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 5, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints have only one “veteran” player on their roster and he got the start on Sunday evening at Sioux Falls Stadium. Mike Devine, one of the top relievers in the American Association for the Saints the last two years, made his first start since August 10, 2016. The second oldest player on the Saints worked 5.0 strong innings, while the fifth oldest player, Josh Allen, had a perfect day at the plate in a 7-4 win over the Sioux Falls Canaries in front of 517.

 

Devine ran into a little trouble in the second when, with one out, he walked Jabari Henry and gave up a double to Mike Hart putting runners at second and third. Devine got Ryan Brett to fly out to shallow center and then Ryan Long grounded out to end the inning.

 

The Saints offense gave Devine a 5-0 lead scoring three in the second when Allen led off with a walk and Sebastian Zawada reached on a one out single, moving Allen to third. A wild pitch scored Allen giving the Saints a 1-0 lead. A second wild pitch moved Zawada to third and he scored on a sacrifice fly from Mitch Ghelfi making it 2-0. Connor Justus walked and scored on an RBI double from Max Murphy giving the Saints a 3-0 lead.

 

In the fourth Allen deposited one over the left field wall, his first of the season, making it 4-0.

 

In the fifth the Saints took a 5-0 lead when Allen walked, stole second and two batters later scored

i>ST. PAUL, MN SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 7, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints played their first home game of 2020. The uniforms looked familiar, their home whites with the “Saints” script across the chest, but the crowd was not there to cheer on the home team. Instead, they were cheering on the visitors, the Sioux Falls Canaries. The Saints stranded 12 base runners and lost 5-3 to the Canaries on Tuesday night at Sioux Falls Stadium, in their first home game in their new home away from home.

The Saints managed 12 hits, all singles, and left at least one runner on base in every inning. Of the three runs they scored only one came by way of a hit, an RBI single by Josh Allen in the fifth.

 

The Saints fell behind in the first when Andrew Ely led off the game with a single to center. He moved to third on a single by Alay Lago, and scored on a single by Damek Tomscha giving the Canaries a 1-0 lead.

 

The Saints tied it in the third when Max Murphy led off with a single off the ankle of pitcher Sam Bragg. He moved to third on a single by Justin Byrd and, two batters later, scored on a fielder’s choice groundout by Chris Chinea.

 

The Saints took their lone lead of the game in the fifth on a walk to Byrd, he stole second, and scored on Allen’s two-out single.

 

The Canaries took the lead right back in the sixth off of Saints starter Ryan Zimmerman. Lago led off with a double. He f

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 8, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints offense was no where to be found on Wednesday afternoon at Sioux Falls Stadium. They managed just three singles and never had a runner reach third. While the pitching was superb, the defense let them down in an unfortunate fifth inning as the Saints lost 3-0 to the Sioux Falls Canaries.

 

Matt Quintana started for the Saints and looked strong. His lone mistake of the afternoon came in the second when he gave up a leadoff home run to Ryan Long, his first of the season, making it 1-0 Canaries.

 

In the fifth, Quintana’s defense abandoned him in what should have been an easy inning. Andrew Ely led off with a fly ball to left that Sebastian Zawada got turned around on due to a tough wind blowing out to left. Zawada turned to his left, turned back to his right, but by the time he did that the ball was over his head for a double. Jabari Henry then hit a routine fly ball to right as Max Murphy started back, but had to come charging in as the wind knocked the ball down. Henry wound up with a single as Ely took third. The next hitter, Alay Lago, hit a ground ball to the left of second baseman Josh Allen, who fielded it, spun towards second and dropped the ball as he went to throw it. On the error Ely scored from third making it 2-0 Canaries. The next hitter Damek Tomscha hit a ground ball right at shortstop Connor Justus, but the ball bounced off his glove into left-center field as Henry score

i>SIOIUX FALLS, SD (July 9, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints offense showed up in a big way on Thursday night at Sioux Falls Stadium. They peppered the field with hit after hit, 20 of them when all was said and done. Unfortunately, with an opportunity to win it in the bottom of the ninth inning they came up short losing 12-11 to the Sioux Falls Canaries and getting swept by the Birds as the home team in the Canaries ballpark.

 

With the Saints down a run in the bottom of the ninth JC Millan led off with a pinch-hit single to right. With one out, Justin Byrd singled to right sending Millan to third. That brought up Chris Chinea. He hit a broken bat looper in back of second that second baseman Ryan Long raced out and caught. Byrd was sliding into second as the ball was being caught and Long threw to first for the game ending double play.

 

The game was a back-and-forth affair and with the Saints up 8-5 in the seventh the Canaries scored seven unanswered runs over two innings. In the seventh, Jabari Henry reached on an infield single to third and that was followed by a Lago single to left-center. Damek Tomscha then drilled a three-run home run to right-center, his second of the season, tying the game at eight.

 

In the eighth the Canaries took the lead with four runs as Mike Hart started it with a one out double. With two outs Andrew Ely was intentionally walked and Jabari Henry walked to load the bases. The next three hitters all

i>FRANKLIN, WI (July 10, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints got the ray of light their offense needed in the sixth inning. With the bats doing nothing against former Major Leaguer David Holmberg, they caught a break when first baseman David Washington failed to catch a throw because he lost it in the sun. That opened the door for the Saints who came from behind to defeat the Milwaukee Milkmen 7-4 on Friday night at Franklin Field.

 

With the Saints down 3-0, one out in the sixth and Holmberg cruising, allowing just two hits, the Saints received some good fortune. Justin Byrd hit a routine ground ball to third that Dylan Tice fielded and threw a strike to first base. Washington, however, bailed out before the ball got there as the sun was right in line with the throw. The two base throwing error gave the Saints life. The next hitter, Chris Chinea, blasted a two-run home run to left, his second of the season, cutting the deficit to 3-2. The next two hitters, John Silviano and Josh Allen, reached on a single and walk, respectively and chased Holmberg. Another former Major Leaguer, AJ Schugel, came on in relief and struck out JC Millan. Sebastian Zawada singled to load the bases and Mikey Reynolds ripped a single back up the middle scoring two runs and giving the Saints a 4-3 lead.

 

In the seventh the Saints added to their lead as Max Murphy led off the inning with a walk. With two outs John Silviano reached on an infield single and Josh Allen drilled an

i>FRANKLIN, WI (July 11, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints got two home runs from unlikely sources on Saturday afternoon at Franklin Field. Unfortunately, after they scored three runs in the second inning, they gave up 11 unanswered runs in a 12-4 loss to the Milwaukee Milkmen. The loss ends a streak of nine consecutive victories over the Milkmen dating back to last season.

 

The Saints jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second when Troy Alexander led off with a single to right. With one out Mitch Ghelfi drilled a two-run homer over the right field wall, his first of the season and just his 11th in 278 career games, to give the Saints a 2-0 lead. Two batters later Mikey Reynolds hit a solo homer, his first of the season and his 11th in 425 career games, making it 3-0.

 

The euphoria from those two home runs ended in the third as the Milkmen began their onslaught against Saints pitching. Christian Correa led off with a single to left and, with two outs, Dylan Tice doubled him to third. Mason Davis followed with a two-run double off the wall in right cutting the Saints lead to 3-2.

 

In the fourth the Milkmen took the lead for good. They loaded the bases with one out on a walk to Zach Nehrir, a single by Adam Brett Walker, and a hit by pitch to Correa. Aaron Hill then drilled a grand slam the opposite way, over the right field wall, giving the Milkmen a 6-3 lead. Saints starter Mike Devine went 5.0 innings allowi

i>FRANKLIN, WI (July 12, 2020) – St. Paul Saints starter Ryan Zimmerman stood tall on the mound Sunday afternoon at Franklin Field against the Milwaukee Milkmen. After giving up two runs in the first, he allowed just two base runners over the next six innings and struck out a career tying high nine. That was big because the Saints needed a bases loaded bunt single by Justin Byrd to win the game as they took down the Milkmen 3-2.

 

With the game tied at two in the eighth the Saints got the winning run against former Saints reliever Karch Kowalczyk. With two outs and a runner at first Connor Justus walked. Mikey Reynolds followed with his third hit of the game, a line drive single to left that loaded the bases. That’s when Byrd dropped down a gutsy bunt that was perfectly placed down the third base line for an RBI single that proved to be the winning run.

 

Zimmerman was magnificent after the first. He allowed just two base runners, the only two runners the Milkmen would get after the first. He walked Adam Brett Walker to lead off the second, but retired the next three hitters.

 

Zimmerman retired nine in a row before a leadoff single by Logan Trowbridge in the fifth. The next hitter, Christ Conley, hit a sinking fly ball to right that Max Murphy made a running catch and then doubled off Trowbridge at first. Zimmerman retired the final eight batters he faced including striking out the side in the seventh. He went 7.0 in

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 14, 2020) – The last time the St. Paul Saints faced Mitchell Lambson he threw a two-hit shutout against them at CHS Field. That prompted a player’s only meeting, a 17-3 stretch run, and an eventual championship. On Tuesday night at Sioux Falls Stadium the outcome was far different as they knocked out the 2019 American Association Pitcher of the Year in the fourth inning. The Saints recorded a franchise record 10 hits in the inning and scored 10 runs as they defeated the Winnipeg Goldeyes 16-9 in their first “home” win of the season.

 

With the Saints down 4-1 in the fourth the Saints sent 15 men to the plate and it started with a Chris Chinea double to right-center. Josh Allen drew a walk and Max Murphy followed with a sinking liner to center that Darnell Sweeney dove for and came up empty as two runs scored on the triple making it 4-3. A wild pitch scored Murphy tying the score at four. JC Millan gave the Saints the lead for good with a solo homer to right, his first of the season, making it 5-4. Mitch Ghelfi then doubled to left and moved to third on an infield single by Mikey Reynolds. With two outs Chesny Young made it 7-4 with a two-run double to right-center. Chinea collected his second double of the inning scoring Young to make it 8-4. An infield single to third by Josh Allen scored Chinea making it 9-4 and chasing Lambson. Dylan Rheault came on in relief and Murphy hit a grounder to short that Darvill made a poor th

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 15, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints have had two opportunities as the home team in Sioux Falls for a walk-off win. Their first came against Sioux Falls six days ago, but they lost by a run. On Wednesday night at Sioux Falls Stadium they had their second chance, but the result was the same. The Saints left the tying run stranded at second and lost 4-3 to the Winnipeg Goldeyes.

 

With the Saints down a run and one out in the ninth Max Murphy walked. He moved to second on a wild pitch, but Nate Samson flew out to left and Troy Alexander struck out to end the game.

 

The Saints trailed 4-0 after three innings and weren’t doing much against Goldeyes starter Frank Duncan who allowed a two-out fourth inning single and nothing else through the first five innings. In the sixth, Mitch Ghelfi reached on a one out single to third. Mikey Reynolds continued his hot start to the season with a single to left putting runners at first and second. With two outs Chesny Young knocked home Ghelfi to make it 4-1. Duncan went 6.0 innings allowing one run on four hits while striking out five.

 

In the eighth, Alexander led off with a solo homer to right, his second of the season, making it 4-2. With one out, Reynolds doubled to left and that forced the Goldeyes to remove reliever Nate Antone in favor of Kevin McGovern. He got Justin Byrd to pop out, but Young grounded a single through the right side scoring Reynolds gettin

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 16, 2020) – For the third consecutive game the St. Paul Saints walked the leadoff hitter in the game, Kevin LaChance. For the third consecutive game he came around to score and the Saints found themselves in an early hole. For the second time in three games they were able to come back. After falling behind 3-0 the Saints scored seven unanswered runs and defeated the Winnipeg Goldeyes 7-4 on Thursday night at Sioux Falls Stadium to take two out of three in the series.

 

With the Saints down 3-0 and two outs in the bottom of the third Mikey Reynolds reached on an infield single to third, extending his hitting streak to seven games. Nate Samson collected his first hit as a Saint with a single to right that was then misplayed by Logan Hill allowing Reynolds to go to third and Samson to take second. Chesny Young made it 3-1 with an infield single to third and John Silviano made it 3-2 with a sharp single to center.

 

The Saints tied the game in the fourth when Max Murphy doubled to left-center, moved to third on a single by JC Millan, and scored on a sacrifice fly from Mitch Ghelfi.

 

In the fifth the Saints took the lead for good as Josh Allen drilled a solo shot to left, his second of the season, giving the Saints a 4-3 lead.

 

In the seventh the Saints got some breathing room it turned out they would need. With two outs, Young singled to right as he finished off his fourth consecut

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 17, 2020) – St. Paul Saints starter Mike Devine was on point on Friday night at Sioux Falls Stadium as he struck out a career high 10. A thrilling bottom of the ninth tied the game, but the defense continues to plague the Saints as they committed two errors in the 10th inning that resulted in two unearned runs in a 3-1, 10 inning loss to the Milwaukee Milkmen.

 

With the Saints trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the ninth Karch Kowalczyk came on to close it out for the Milkmen. He walked the leadoff hitter Chesny Young. Chris Chinea then roped a game tying RBI double to the gap in left-center. Kowalczyk settled down and struck out Josh Allen and Max Murphy and got John Silviano to ground out to end the inning.

 

In the 10th the Saints, who came in with the worst fielding percentage in the league along with the most errors, hurt themselves on three consecutive plays. Aaron Hill led off with a ground ball just to the left of shortstop Connor Justus who had the ball go off his glove and skip behind him for an error. Brett Vertigan then laid down a sacrifice bunt to first, but as John Silviano went to pick up the ball and take a peek at second he dropped the ball for an error. The Milkmen once again sacrificed with Dylan Tice as the Saints put on the wheel play where the third baseman charges, and the shortstop goes to cover third. Young fielded the ball at third and fired to Justus covering the bag, but the

i>SIOUX FALL, SD (July 18, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints and Milwaukee Milkmen came into Saturday night at Sioux Falls Stadium with the top two ERA’s in the American Association. While runs were tough to come by on Friday night that wasn’t the case on Saturday as the Saints got a career high four RBI from Troy Alexander and a seven-run sixth propelled them to an 11-8 victory.

 

With the game tied at four in the sixth the Saints sent 10 men to the plate and scored seven runs. Max Murphy led off with a walk and JC Millan reached on a bunt single. Starter Taylor Ahearn departed for former Saints pitcher Jake Matthys. Justin Byrd moved the runners over with a sacrifice bunt and that brought up Alexander. The rookie, in his first full season, drilled a three-run blast over the right field wall, his third of the season, giving the Saints a 7-4 lead. Mikey Reynolds, who came in hitting a league leading .442, roped a triple to left-center. Nate Samson was hit by a pitch and Chesny Young’s sacrifice fly made it 8-4. Chris Chinea set a career high by doubling for the third consecutive game which scored Samson making it 9-4. John Silviano finished off the onslaught with a two-run homer to right, his second of the season, putting the Saints up 11-4.

 

They needed all of those runs because the Milkmen, who fought back all night long, scored two in the seventh when David Washington singled and Zach Nehrir hit a two-run homer to right, his sec

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 19, 2020) – When you play in Sioux Falls Stadium you’re going to hit plenty of home runs, but you’re going to give up plenty of long balls too. The Saints came in tied for first in the league in hitting home runs, but were also tops in home runs allowed. On Sunday evening they hit two more, but also gave up three and fell in the rubber game of the three-game series to the Milwaukee Milkmen 7-3.

 

The Saints, who have given up 11 first inning runs, gave up two more on Sunday as Brett Vertigan led off with a single to right and went to second when Max Murphy mishandled the ball. Dylan Tice grounded out sending Vertigan to third and Mason Davis’ groundout scored Vertigan giving the Milkmen a 1-0 lead. David Washington then hit his second home run of the season, a solo shot to right making it 2-0.

 

In the third, the Milkmen doubled their lead when Dylan Tice doubled with two outs. Mason Davis followed with a two-run home run to right, his second of the season, giving the Milkmen a 4-0 lead.

 

The Saints got on the board in the fifth when Troy Alexander was hit by a pitch and Justin Byrd followed with a two-run homer to right, his first of the season,  making it 4-2.

 

The Milkmen answered right back in the top of the sixth and got their third home run of the night. Mason Davis led off the inning with a double to left and Washington clubbed his second homer of

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 21, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints offense did all they could to overcome six home runs hit by the Sioux Falls Canaries. Chris Chinea set a career high with five hits and Mikey Reynolds tied a franchise record with three doubles, but it wasn’t enough. After giving up 10 unanswered runs and trailing 10-1 through five, the offense turned it on, but finished a run short losing 10-9 to the Canaries on Tuesday night at Sioux Falls Stadium.

 

With the Saints down by nine entering the sixth Alonso Harris started the inning with a solid single off the glove of second baseman Grant Kay. Chinea then unloaded on a two-run homer to right, his third of the season, making it 10-3. With one out Max Murphy singled and went to second on John Silviano’s single. A wild pitch moved Murphy to third who then scored on JC Millan’s fielder’s choice cutting the deficit to six.

 

In the seventh Chesny Young was hit by a pitch and Alonso Harris ripped a single off the body of Kay at second putting runners at first and second. Harris went 2-5 with two runs scored in his return to the Saints. After a balk moved the runners up 90-feet, Chinea roped a two-run single to right making it 10-6.

 

In the eighth Reynolds doubled to right and, with two outs, Young knocked him home with a single making it 10-7. Reynolds, who entered the night leading the league in hitting, extended his hitting streak to 11-games going

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 22, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints are going to look back on Wednesday night’s game against the Sioux Falls Canaries and count all the early missed opportunities. They left eight men on base through the first four innings and 10 overall, including the bases loaded in the second, and it proved costly as they dropped their fifth straight game to their hubmates 6-3 at Sioux Falls Stadium.

 

The league’s leading hitter, Mikey Reynolds, extended his hitting streak to a career tying high 12 games by leading off the game with a single. With one out, Chesny Young singled him to third, extending his hitting streak to nine games, but both runners were left stranded.

 

In the second, the Saints loaded the bases with two outs on a walk, error, and a walk, but Nate Samson flew out to left to end the inning.

 

With the Saints down 2-0 in the third they managed to score a run when Alonzo Harris singled with one out. Chris Chinea smashed a double off the wall in left scoring Harris to make it 2-1. Josh Allen then walked, but both runners were left stranded.

 

With one out in the fourth Reynolds walked, stole second, but would advance no further.

 

On the other side, the Canaries capitalized on their chances. In the first Andr

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 23, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints were one out away from winning the game in nine innings on Thursday night at Sioux Falls Stadium. The first place Sioux Falls Canaries found a way to tie it in the bottom of the ninth, but John Silviano played hero for the Saints in the top of the 13th with a solo home run in a 4-3 victory in four hours and 22 minutes.

 

With the game tied at three in the top of the 13th, and the wind blowing in all night, Silviano drilled an opposite field solo homer to left, his third of the season, giving the Saints the 4-3 lead.

 

The Canaries, who had already come back once, threatened in the bottom of the 13th off of Nick Belzer, the sixth pitcher of the night for the Saints. Belzer retired the first two hitters, but then walked Andrew Ely and gave up a single to Jabari Henry putting the tying run at second and winning run at first. Belzer was able to strikeout the second-best hitter in the league, Alay Lago, to end the game. Belzer went 2.0 shutout innings allowing one hit while walking one and striking out two.

 

The Saints took a 3-0 lead into the ninth and it started when they broke a scoreless tie in the seventh as Chris Chinea singled and Josh Allen walked. With one out, and starter Grady Wood removed from the game for Kevin Folman, Silviano gave the S

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (July 24, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints were the home team, but very few in the crowd wanted to see a walk-off win. Trailing by a run in the bottom of the ninth the Saints scored two, including the walk-off on Max Murphy’s RBI double, in a 3-2 win over the Sioux Falls Canaries at Sioux Falls Stadium on Friday night.

 

The Saints were 0-9 when trailing after seven innings and had lost all 10 games when trailing going into the ninth. With the Saints down 2-1 in the bottom of the ninth Nicco Blank came on to close out the game for the Canaries because their regular closer, Keaton Steele, had pitched each of the last three days. Blank started off the ninth by hitting Nate Samson in the helmet. Chesny Young then hit a ground ball to the shortstop Andrew Ely, but he had the ball go off his glove and between his legs for an error. Blank then hit Chris Chinea to load the bases. Josh Allen tied the game with a sacrifice line out to left as Samson scored easily. Murphy then roped a line drive double over the head of Ryan Brett in left as Young scored from second to cap off the comeback walk-off win.

 

Much like Thursday night it was a pitcher’s duel all night long as the Saints Ryan Zimmerman and the Canaries Jake Zokan matched each other zero for zero. The Saints had a great opportunity to score in the first when Alonzo Harris led off the game with a double to l

i>SIOUX FALL, SD (July 25, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints are now one-third of the way through the 2020 season. In a game all too reminiscent of some they’ve played in the first three weeks of the season, they fell behind big early, clawed their way back, had a chance to tie or win it in the ninth, but fell just short losing 13-12 to the Sioux Falls Canaries on Saturday night at Sioux Falls Stadium.

 

With the Saints trailing 13-7 in the eighth inning the first four hitters of the inning reached and scored. Josh Allen led off with a walk and John Silviano followed with a two-run homer to straightaway center, his fourth of the season, cutting the deficit to 13-9. Justin Byrd was then hit by a pitch and Mikey Reynolds doubled him to third. A sacrifice fly from Nate Samson made it 13-10. Reynolds took third on a ground out and scored on a wild pitch making it 13-11.

 

In the bottom of the ninth, the Saints faced the league leader in saves, Keaton Steele. With one out Allen singled to left, advanced to second on a wild pitch and Max Murhpy walked. After a strikeout of Silviano, Byrd singled to right driving home Allen and sending Murphy to third as the Saints drew  to within a run. That brought up the league’s leading hitter, Reynolds. He swung at the first pitch and hit a line drive to right, but it was right at Logan Landon who caught it to end the game.

i>SIOUX FALL, SD (July 26, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints have played 12 games in Sioux Falls Stadium this year against the Sioux Falls Canaries. They’re getting used to the friendly confines on the offensive side. The Saints blasted three home runs and got great relief from Nick Belzer and Jameson McGrane to take the rubber game of the three-game series against the Canaries 6-4 on Sunday evening.

 

The Saints jumped on Canaries starter Ty Culbreth in the second inning after he walked the leadoff hitter, Josh Allen, and John Silviano with one out. Mitch Ghelfi then went the opposite way with a three-run homer to right-center, his second of the season, to make it 3-0.

 

The Canaries got a three-run homer of their own in the fourth as Clint Coulter singled with one out. With two outs Logan Landon walked and Grant Kay followed with a three-run shot to right, his second of the season, tying the game at three.

 

The Canaries grabbed the lead on a miscue in the fifth. Andrew Ely led off the inning with a single to left and, with one out, Alay Lago singled him to second. Damek Tomscha then hit a high tapper back to the mound that Eddie Medina fielded, looked at second and decided to throw to first, but he threw it over the head of John Silviano allowing Ely to score making it 4-3. Saints starter Eddie Medina went 6.0 innings allowing four

i>FARGO, ND (July 29, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints came in to Wednesday night’s game with the top offense in the league hitting just a point below .300. Hits weren’t a problem on Wednesday night against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks at Newman Outdoor Field. It was hits with runners in scoring position that were the issue. They outhit the RedHawks 13-7, but couldn’t capitalize on their opportunities and lost 4-2.

 

The Saints jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second, in the only inning they would score, as Alonzo Harris led off with a walk. A ground out by Josh Allen moved Harris to second. Max Murphy made it 1-0 with an RBI single to center. After Murphy was caught stealing, John Silviano reached on an infield single off of pitcher John Anderson’s glove. A wild pitch sent Silviano to second and Mitch Ghelfi knocked him home with a single to left giving the Saints a 2-0 lead. Ghelfi finished the night 3-4 with a double and an RBI.

 

The RedHawks got one back in the third when Brennan Metzger walked with one out. Trey Hair then hit a ground ball to first that Silviano fielded while on his knees. He attempted to throw to second from that position, but threw it into left field allowing Metzger to take third and Hair second. Correlle Prime followed with an RBI single making it 2-1.

i>FARGO, ND (July 30, 2020) – Maybe it was the sunlight beating down on a gorgeous day in Fargo. Maybe it was the fact they didn’t want to get swept. Or maybe it was the good news they received before the game that they would be playing at CHS Field this year. Whatever the reason, the Saints jumped on Tyler Pike early and, unlike the first two games in the series, hung on to win 5-2 on Thursday afternoon over the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks at Newman Outdoor Field.

 

The last time the Saints faced Pike was last season in Game 3 of the North Division Championship Series and he was perfect through six innings. They finally got to him in the seventh on that evening. On Thursday it took just two batters for the Saints to end any talk of perfection when Nate Samson singled to right-center. Chesny Young then walked and Chris Chinea made it 1-0 with an RBI double. After a fielder’s choice by Alonzo Harris, Josh Allen made it 2-0 on an RBI single to left.

 

The Saints took a 3-0 lead in the second on John Silviano’s line drive solo home run to left, his league tying sixth of the season.

 

Saints starter Ryan Zimmerman was once again solid and made just one mistake which came in the second. Christian Ibarra delivered a solo homer to left, his first of the season, making it 3-1.

i>FARGO, ND (August 1, 2020) – If the St. Paul Saints hope to make any noise in the American Association this season, they know their series against the top team in the league, the Winnipeg Goldeyes, is a big one. The Saints found out why the Goldeyes have the best record losing 7-2 on Saturday afternoon in Game 1 of a doubleheader.

 

The Goldeyes jumped on Saints starter Eddie Medina with two outs in the second inning when Roy Morales singled to right. Wed Darvill drilled an RBI triple to the gap in right-center making it 1-0. Kevin LaChance, who had been 0-12 this season against the Saints, reached on an infield single to short that drove home Darvill making it 2-0.

 

The Saints got one back in the third when Max Murphy led off with a single and scored on a one out double by Justin Byrd making it 2-1.

 

The Goldeyes put the game away in the fifth when they put up five runs. The inning started when LaChance walked. Darnell Sweeney singled him to second. With one out, Kyle Martin ripped an RBI double down the first base line making it 3-1. After an intentional walk to Logan Hill loaded the bases, John Nester made it 4-1 with a sacrifice fly to center. Jordan George then deposited one over the right field wall, his third of the season, making it 7-1.

i>FARGO, ND (August 1, 2020) – It’s getting late early for the St. Paul Saints. As they near the halfway point of the season they are beginning to dig themselves a mighty hole to climb out of in hopes of making the playoffs for the third consecutive season. In Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Winnipeg Goldeyes their offense couldn’t muster much against Goldeyes starter Frank Duncan in a 5-2 loss on Saturday afternoon at Newman Outdoor Field.

 

Nick Belzer got the start for the Saints and the Goldeyes got to him in the first inning with two outs. Eric Wood singled to right-center and Kyle Martin delivered a two-run homer to right, his fifth of the season, giving the Goldeyes a 2-0 lead.

 

In the third, Martin came calling again. Kevin LaChance led off by reaching on a throwing error by third baseman Chesny Young. Darnell Sweeney followed with a single off of third base umpire Marty Bauer, putting runners at first and second. With one out, Kyle Martin ripped a double down the first base line scoring LaChance to make it 3-0. With two outs John Nester singled home a pair giving the Goldeyes a 5-0 lead. Belzer lasted 3.0 innings allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits.

 

The Saints had some chances early on. In the first, Samson reached on an infield single and, with two outs, Chris Chinea got aboard on a fielding err

i>FARGO, ND (August 2, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints didn’t want to head back to CHS Field for the first time this year on a down note. They got an incredible pitching performance from starter Matt Solter and the bullpen, scored four runs in the 12th and defeated the top team in the league, the Winnipeg Goldeyes, 5-1 in 12 innings on Sunday afternoon at Newman Outdoor Field.

 

With the game tied at one in the 12th Josh Allen got things started with a one out single to right-center. Alonzo Harris then reached out and blooped a single into right-center sending Allen to third. After an intentional walk to John Silviano, Troy Alexander gave the Saints a 2-1 lead with a single into right. Mikey Reynolds hit a high chopper to third as Darnell Sweeney forced the runner at third, but Sweeney’s throw to first to try and get the double play skipped past Kyle Martin as Harris scored and Alexander took third and Reynolds went to second. Nate Samson sent a fly ball to right-center that hit the glove of Logan hill for a two-run error giving the Saints the four-run lead that they wouldn’t relinquish.

 

The Saints were up against the Goldeyes lefty Mitchell Lambson, who had his worst professional outing against the Saints back on July 14 when they got to him for 10 runs. He was magnificent on Sunday as the Saints only got to him in the second. Josh Allen led

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 4, 2020) – One month after the American Association season started the St. Paul Saints finally played in front of the home fans at CHS Field. All the pomp and circumstance of an Opening Day took place including the Championship banner raising ceremony. The game had all the drama of the last time the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks were at CHS Field, Game 5 of the North Division Championship Series. Similar to that memorable night, the Saints came from behind late and used a costly error to win the game 3-2 in front of 1,489, 11 shy the maximum 1,500 allowed.

 

With the Saints trailing 2-1 going into the bottom of the eighth inning Chesny Young was hit by a pitch with one out. Chris Chinea ripped a single into left moving Young to second. With two outs Max Murphy hit a chopper back to the mound, but as pitcher Brent Jones bent down to field it, the ball went through his legs for an error that loaded the bases. Alonzo Harris then hit a ground ball into the hole between short and third that shortstop Christian Ibarra fielded and his throw to second went into right field. Two runs scored on the infield single and error giving the Saints a one run lead.

 

In the ninth, Jameson McGrane came on to close it out. After striking out the leadoff hitter, Leo Pina followed with a single to center. McGrane then walked Dario Pizzano to put the go ahead runs on. Ibarra grounded out

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 5, 2020) – St. Paul Saints starter Ryan Zimmerman didn’t have his best stuff on Wednesday night at CHS Field. He walked seven in 3.2 innings, but the bullpen picked him up allowing just a solo homer in the ninth over 5.1 innings of relief. That allowed the offense to find it’s groove in the eighth, coming from behind with just six outs to go for the second consecutive night in a 6-4 victory over the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in front of 1,393.

 

With the Saints down 3-2 going into the bottom of the eighth Chesny Young led off with a walk against Tyler Wilson. Chris Chinea sent a single up the middle putting runners at first and second. The RedHawks went to their bullpen for closer Mitchell Osnowitz. He gave up a single to Josh Allen loading the bases. After a strikeout of Max Murphy, Alonzo Harris tied the game with a sacrifice fly to right as Chinea took third. John Silviano, with three defenders to the right and one on the left side, hit it away from the shift and singled to where the shortstop would normally be standing. That allowed Chinea to score and, as Allen took third, the throw from left fielder Forrestt Allday skipped into foul territory allowing Silviano to take second. That proved costly as Mitch Ghelfi singled both runners home giving the Saints a 6-3 lead.

 

Despite a leadoff homer from Allday in the ninth, the lone run the RedHawks

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 6, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints had hopes of a three-game sweep against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Unfortunately, they ran into a red-hot pitcher in Matt Tomshaw. The Saints were blanked over the first eight innings and lost 10-2 on Thursday night in front of 1179 at CHS Field.

 

The Saints looked like they were going to hit Tomshaw as Mikey Reynolds and Nate Samson led off the bottom of the first with back-to-back singles. Tomshaw, however, retired the next three hitters to get out of the jam.

 

The Saints wouldn’t touch Tomshaw until the ninth as he allowed just two base hits from the second through the eighth, both to Reynolds on a one out double in the third and an infield single to short in the sixth.

 

Meanwhile, the RedHawks bats pounded out 15 hits and it started in the first against Saints starter Eddie Medina. Brennan Metzger led off the game with a single to left-center. Forrestt Allday was then hit by a pitch. With one out, Drew Ward doubled in a run to make it 1-0. A walk to Leo Pina loaded the bases and, with two outs, Christian Ibarra walked to force in a run and make it 2-0.

 

The RedHawks would add a run in the third on an RBI double from Metzger.

 

In the fifth Ward led off with a single and Pin

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 7, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints had already played three games at CHS Field before their match-up with the Sioux Falls Canaries. Friday night was the first time the two teams met in Lowertown, Saint Paul, however, after the first 12 games were in Sioux Falls Stadium as the teams shared a ballpark for the first month of the season. The Canaries found out what it was like to have the fans not rooting for them. The Saints used the arm of starting pitcher Matt Solter, their defense, and some timely hitting late in the game for a 3-1 victory on Friday night in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500.

 

The turning point in the game came in the seventh with the game tied at one. Solter, who was magnificent all night long, got help from his defense. Clint Coulter led off the inning with a double to right-center. Roy Morales followed with a single to right and Max Murphy’s throw went home. Morales took too big of a turn at first and catcher Chris Chinea fired down to first as John Silviano tagged Morales out as he tried to get back to the bag. Andrew Ely then sent a fly ball to left that Alonzo Harris caught and came up throwing to the plate as Coulter tried to tag up. The throw was perfect and in plenty of time to nail Coulter at the plate and keep the game tied at one.

 

With the crowd into it, the Saints used that momentum in the bottom of the inning as Chinea led<

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 8, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints are allowing home runs at a record setting pace. They might be thankful this is only a 60-game season. They gave up a season high 16 hits, with four of them leaving the ballpark, in a 12-4 loss to the Sioux Falls Canaries on Saturday night at CHS Field in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500.

 

The long balls started early as the Canaries got on the board first courtesy of a solo home run off the bat of Damek Tomscha, his fifth, in the second to make it 1-0.

 

The Saints took their lone lead of the night in the bottom of the inning as Chesny Young and John Silviano drew back-to-back walks to start the inning. Max Murphy’s tapper in front of the plate moved both runners up. Troy Alexander tied the game at one with a single to right and Mikey Reynolds followed with an RBI single to left giving the Saints a 2-1 lead.

 

That lead didn’t last long as the Canaries scored five in the third as they sent 10 men to the plate. Ryan Long led off the inning with a solo homer to right, his second of the season, tying the game at two. Ryan Brett singled to left and Andrew Ely doubled him home giving the Canaries a 3-2 lead. Roy Morales’ infield single to third moved Ely to third. An RBI fielder’s choice from Alay Lago scored Ely making it 4-2. Tomscha followed by being hit by

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 9, 2020) – It was a battle of two Top 10 pitchers in the American Association on Sunday evening at CHS Field that lived up to the billing. Mike Devine continued to impress for the St. Paul Saints and the team made sure it didn’t set a dubious mark of going homerless in six straight games at CHS Field as Josh Allen and Alonzo Harris provided the offense in a 2-1 victory over the Sioux Falls Canaries in front of a sold out crowd of 1,500.

 

Devine and Jake Zokan went toe-to-toe with neither pitcher giving much. The Saints had the first opportunity to score in the first when they loaded the bases as Mikey Reynolds led off a walk, Natson Samson reached on a one out single and Allen walked with two outs. Chesny Young would foul out to right, however, to end the inning. Zokan worked 5.0 shutout innings allowing two hits while walking three and striking out four.

 

In the second, Max Murphy led off with a double to center, but was left stranded at second.

 

Meanwhile, Devine didn’t allow a runner to reach second through the first four innings. His lone mistake came in the fifth when Clint Coulter drilled a two out solo homer to left, his fifth of the season, putting the Canaries up 1-0.

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (August 11, 2020) – It was a happy homecoming of sorts for the St. Paul Saints as they returned to the place they called home for the first month of the season, Sioux Falls Stadium. The Saints scored seven runs in the first three innings and hung on late to win 8-6 over the Sioux Falls Canaries on Tuesday night. The win puts the Saints at .500, 17-17, for the first time since July 18 when they were 7-7.

 

The Saints feasted on Canaries starter Kurt Heyer and it started in the first. With one out, Alonzo Harris doubled to left and Nate Samson knocked him home with a single to left-center making it 1-0. Samson stole second and, with two outs, scored on a single by Josh Allen putting the Saints up 2-0.

 

In the second they tacked on three more as John Silviano led off with a walk and Max Murphy doubled him to third. Drew Stankiewicz walked to load the bases. Mikey Reynolds made it 4-0 with a two-run single to right-center. Harris added a run with an RBI groundout.

 

In the third the Saints knocked out Heyer with two more runs. With one out Silviano reached on a throwing error by second baseman Grant Kay. With two outs Stankiewicz doubled him to third. Reynolds came through again with a two-run single making it 7-0. Reynolds finished the night 3-6 with a career tying high four RBI.

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (August 12, 2020) – Eddie Medina and Tyler Herron faced off against each other on Opening Day. Both felt they could have pitched better that night and through the first half of the season that was the prevailing thought process for both hurlers. On Wednesday afternoon at Sioux Falls Stadium the match-up lived up to the billing, but it was Herron who was the star throwing a complete game as the Saints lost 4-1.

 

Herron was untouched through the first four innings retiring the first 12 men he faced. In the fifth, he retired John Silviano on a fly out and Josh Allen on a ground out as Herron was perfect for 4.2 innings. That ended when he hit Chesny Young. With the perfect game gone, the no-hitter was the next to fall as Max Murphy lined a single into left. With runners at first and second, Troy Alexander popped out to second to end the inning.

 

Meanwhile, Medina had one hiccup through the first five innings. In the second, Logan Landon singled to left and Grant Kay walked. With two outs, Ryan Brett roped a two-run double to the gap in left-center giving the Canaries a 2-0 lead.

 

It stayed that way until the sixth when Damek Tomscha led off the inning with a solo homer to left, his sixth of the season, giving the Canaries a 3-0 lead.

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (August 13, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints finally got the consistent offense they were looking for and they needed every bit of it. The Saints scored four runs over the first three innings and five runs over the final three and then hung on for dear life in the ninth for a 9-7 victory over the Sioux Falls Canaries on Thursday night at Sioux Falls Stadium.

 

The Saints jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first when Mikey Reynolds led off the game with a walk. He stole second and advanced to third on a ground ball by Alonzo Harris between short and third that was fielded by shortstop Andrew Ely and his throw to third wasn’t in time.  Harris then stole second putting runners at second and third. Nate Samson’s RBI groundout made it 1-0. Chris Chinea followed with an RBI single to center putting the Saints up 2-0.

 

In the second, John Silviano led off with a double, moved to third on a fly out and scored on a two-out RBI infield single from Mikey Reynolds making it 3-0.

 

The Canaries got on the board in the bottom of the inning when Mike Hart delivered a two-run home run to right, his fourth of the season, cutting the Saints lead to 3-1.

 

The Saints would answer immediately in the top of the third and it all started with two outs. Josh Allen was hit by a pitch a

i>FRANKLIN, WI (August 14, 2020) – It’s the hurdle the St. Paul Saints just can’t seem to overcome: getting above .500. It was all there for them as they were one strike away from climbing above the mark for the first time since the third day of the season. Unfortunately, Christian Correa hit an 0-2 pitch over the left field wall for a two-run homer over as the Saints lost 4-3 to the Milwaukee Milkmen on Friday night at Franklin Field.

 

With the Saints leading 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth they handed the ball to Jameson McGrane, who leads the league with 12 saves and had not blown a save when asked the get three outs. He walked the leadoff batter Jose Sermo who was then removed for pinch runner Aaron Hill. Dylan Tice attempted to sacrifice Hill over, but popped the bunt up to third baseman Drew Stankiewicz. Hill then stole second, but McGrane fanned Zach Nehrir for the second out of the inning. With the count 0-2 on Correa, the .214 hitter drilled a fastball over the left field wall for the game winning home run.

 

The Saints squandered another superbly pitched game from Mike Devine, who entered the night fifth in the league in ERA, but was just 1-2. Devine struggled in the first, but then settled into a groove. In the first, Brett Vertigan led off with a single to left and that was followed by single from David Washington that sent Vertigan to third. Washington, wh

i>FRANKLIN, WI (August 15, 2020) – John Silviano made sure there were no ninth inning dramatics. He took things into his own hands. And in those hands was a bat he used to crush two home runs and drive in four as the St. Paul Saints got back to .500 with an 8-3 win over the Milkmen on Saturday night at Franklin Field.

 

With the game tied at two in the sixth, Josh Allen led off with a single and Chesny Young walked. That brought up Silviano who had struck out in his first two plate appearances. This time he crushed a three-run homer to left center, his first of the night and eighth of the season, giving the Saints a 5-2 lead. The Saints weren’t done in the inning as they loaded the bases when Max Murphy reached on a throwing error by shortstop Mason Davis. Troy Alexander legged out a bunt and, with one out, Alonzo Harris walked. With two outs Chris Chinea walked forcing in a run adding to the Saints lead at 6-2.

 

The Milkmen got one back in the seventh when Mason Davis doubled and scored on a single by Brett Vertigan cutting the Saints lead to 6-3.

 

The Saints would answer back in the eighth when Chinea doubled home Harris to make it 7-3. Chinea finished the night 1-3, with his league leading 16th double, and two RBI.

i>FRANKLIN, WI (August 16, 2020) – Like Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the mountain the St. Paul Saints felt like getting over .500 might never happen. Since they were 2-1 on July 6, the Saints have had six chances to climb back over the .500 mark and six times they couldn’t get it done. The seventh time turned out to be the lucky number in a thrilling 5-3 victory over the Milwaukee Milkmen on Sunday afternoon at Franklin Field. The win sends the Saints to 20-19 and they are now just 1.0 game out of a playoff spot with 21 games to go.

 

It was a great battle of pitchers to start with the Milkmen going with former Milwaukee Brewer, Tim Dillard who was making his first appearance of the season, and the Saints countering with Ryan Zimmerman. Both matched each other pitch for pitch in spectacular fashion.

 

The Saints got on the board in the fourth when Alonzo Harris led off with a double just inside the left field line. Nate Samson then hit a grounder to third, but Logan Trowbridge’s throw sailed well over the head of first baseman David Washington allowing Harris to score giving the Saints a 1-0 lead.

 

Meanwhile, Zimmerman didn’t allow a hit through the first 4.0 innings. In the fifth, however, an error started the inning that would eventually lead to the no-hitter ending. Zach Nehrir led off the inning reaching on a

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 18, 2020) – The team that leads the league in home runs faced off against the team that has allowed the most home runs. It went just as one would expect. The St. Paul Saints came into Tuesday night’s game having allowed 51 long balls while the Chicago Dogs had hit 60. The Saints gave up three home runs and could never recover losing 10-3 at CHS Field in front of a maximum capacity of 1,500.

 

Saints starter Eddie Medina, who entered play having allowed a league high 12 home runs, was touched up in the first from Joey Terdoslavich. He deposited a solo homer to right, his first of the night and ninth of the season.

 

In the second the Dogs added two more as Tyler Ladendorf led off with a single to left-center. With one out, Blake Allemand tripled him home making it 2-0. Logan Moore then hit a sinking fly ball to right-center that Mikey Reynolds made a spectacular diving catch on, but Allemand scored on the sacrifice fly making it 3-0.

 

In the third, Terdoslavich came calling again. Michael Crouse led off with a single and Edwin Arroyo walked. Terdoslavich drilled a three-run homer to right, his second of the night and 10th of the season, making it 6-0.

 

In the sixth the Dogs got to Medina one last time with the long ball. Victor Roache, who entered

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 19, 2020) – Just eight minutes before the clock struck midnight, Alonzo Harris turned the Chicago Dogs into pumpkins. With one mighty swing of the bat, Harris walloped a walk-off three-run home run sending the St. Paul Saints to a 6-4, 14 inning victory over the Dogs on Wednesday night at CHS Field in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500. The game last four hours and 47 minutes, the third longest game in terms of time in franchise history.

In the bottom of the 14th John Silviano led off with a walk against Jalen Miller. The next two hitters struck out. Mikey Reynolds extended the game with a single to center putting runners at first and second. That brought up Harris. On a 1-1 pitch he drilled a three-run shot to left, his second home run of the night and third of the season, for the Saints second walk-off victory of the year and first at CHS Field.

 

Harris got the scoring started in the first when he delivered a solo homer to left-center giving the Saints a 1-0 lead.

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 20, 2020) – St. Paul Saints starter Mike Devine entered play Thursday night with the sixth best ERA in the league, but had just one win to show for it. He finally got the run support he was looking for on Thursday night against the Chicago Dogs in front of a sellout of 1,500 at CHS Field. Devine went 8.0 scoreless and struck out a career tying high 10, Mikey Reynolds finished a single shy of the cycle and the Saints got their first shutout of the season with an 8-0 victory. The Saints are now 22-20 and sit just 1.0 game out of a playoff spot with 18 to play.

 

Devine was on his game all night and allowed just four base runners in his eight innings of work. He walked Joey Terdoslavich with two outs in the first, ending a string of 22.2 consecutive innings without a walk. Devine fanned Victor Roache to end the inning.

 

In the fourth, Terdoslavich collected the first hit for the Dogs, a one out single to left. Devine got Roache to pop out into a double play to end the inning.

 

In the seventh Edwin Arroyo led off with a double and Terdoslavich reached on a fielding error by Josh Allen at second. With runners at the corners and nobody out, Devine struck out Roache, got K.C. Hobson to pop out and Tyler Ladendorf to end the inning with a fielder’s choice groundout. Devine went 8.0 scoreless allowing two hits wh

The 2020 Saints are trying to get on a similar role. They needed ninth in dramatics on Friday night at Impact Field to notch their third straight victory as Josh Allen’s three-run home run off the light tower in left gave the Saints the lead in the top of the ninth propelling them to a 6-3 victory. The win improves the Saints to 23-20 and they are now tied for the second, and final, playoff spot with 17 games to go.

 

With the Saints down 3-1 in the top of the ninth Chris Chinea led off with a double to left-center and John Silviano walked. That brought up Allen, who two nights ago became just the third player in CHS Field history to homer over the batter’s eye. On Friday, he did his best Roy Hobbs impersonation drilling a three-run home run off the light tower in left, his sixth home run of the season, giving the Saints a 4-3 lead. With one out Max Murphy doubled and with two outs Troy Alexander smashed a two-run opposite field home run to left, his sixth of the season, giving the Saints a three-run cushion.

 

That was enough for Jameson McGrane who allowed one hit, but nothing else in the bottom of the ninth to pick up his league leading 13th save.

i>ROSEMONT, IL (August 22, 2020) – The late inning magic for the St. Paul Saints fell just short on Saturday night at Impact Field. The Saints scored three runs in the eighth, but went down quietly in the ninth and lost 6-5 to the Chicago Dogs. The loss drops the Saints to 23-21 and they are now 1.0 game behind the Milwaukee Milkmen for the second and final playoff spot with 16 games to go.

 

With the Saints down 6-2 in the eighth Josh Allen led off with a single to center. With one out, Max Murphy lined a single to right putting runners at first and second. The Dogs went to their bullpen for reliever Jake Cousins who was greeted by a single from Nate Samson that loaded the bases. Then the errors ensued. Mitch Ghelfi hit a grounder to first and K.C. Hobson’s throw to the shortstop Tyler Ladendorf at second was dropped allowing Allen to score to make it 6-3 and keeping the bases loaded. With two outs Alonzo Harris hit a grounder to short and Ladendorf’s throw to first was low and skipped by Hobson allowing two runs to score getting the Saints to within a run. Chris Chinea, however, struck out to end the inning.

 

Unlike Friday night when the Saints exploded for five runs, Cousins retired the Saints in order in the ninth.

 

The Saints jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the third when Mikey Reynolds doubled and scored on Harris&rsqu

i>ROSEMONT, IL (August 23, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints needed to tap into their bullpen in the third inning. Paul Voelker, Brian Glowicki and Aaron Brown stepped up in a big way. The three combined for 6.0 hitless, shutout innings while striking out nine, but it wasn’t enough as the offense couldn’t come back from an early deficit losing 5-3 to the Chicago Dogs on Sunday evening at Impact Field. The loss drops the Saints to 23-22 and they are now 2.0 games back of a playoff spot with 15 games to go.

 

The Saints got on the board in the first as Mikey Reynolds led off the game with a single to right-center. Alonzo Harris then hit a slow roller up the middle that was fielded by the shortstop Tyler Ladendorf. He attempted to beat Reynolds to the bag, but Reynolds slid in first. Reynolds and Harris then pulled off a double steal and an RBI groundout by Chris Chinea gave the Saints a 1-0 lead.

 

In the bottom of the first the Dogs got to Saints starter Chris Nunn. Michael Crouse led off with a walk and Edwin Arroyo sacrificed him to second. A walk to Joey Terdoslavich put runners at first and second. K.C. Hobson tied the game with a single to right. With runners at the corners the Dogs took a 2-1 lead on an RBI groundout by Victor Roache.

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (August 25, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints know the final 15 games of the season will determine their playoff fate. They entered Tuesday night in fourth place, with the top two teams reaching the Finals, but just 2.0 games out of a playoff spot. They got a playoff type start from Matt Solter, but the offense couldn’t figure out Tyler Danish in a 3-1 loss to the Sioux Falls Canaries at Sioux Falls Stadium. The loss drops the Saints to 23-23 and they will remain at least 2.0 games out of a playoff spot with 14 to play.

 

The Saints had the lead off man on in five of the nine innings, including the first four. Mikey Reynolds led off the game with a walk, but a double play erased him.

 

In the lone inning they scored, the second, John Silviano led off with a single to right. Max Murphy doubled him to third. With one out Nate Samson’s ground out scored Silviano giving the Saints a 1-0 lead.

 

The Canaries tied it in the bottom of the inning on a solo homer by Roy Morales, his first of the season and just the sixth in more than 300 games.

 

In the top of the third the Saints nearly took the lead when Josh Allen walked with two outs. Chris Chinea then roped a double off the wall in right-center, but Allen was thrown out trying to score. Making matters worse Allen would

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (August 26, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints and Sioux Falls Canaries have met 20 times this season and nothing has been decided between the two. In another tight contest the Saints never trailed and hung on to win 5-4, snapping their three-game losing streak. The teams have now split their 20 games against each other as the Saints improved to 24-23 and are 2.0 games out of the top spot in the league and will be no worse than 2.0 back of a playoff spot, depending on the final score of the Winnipeg Goldeyes/Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks game, with 13 to go.

 

Despite leaving 14 men on base, the Saints did just enough to squeak out a win and they got on the board in the second. Chesny Young led off with a walk and Nate Samson singled him to second. Mitch Ghelfi loaded the bases with a bunt single. Drew Stankiewicz’ sacrifice fly gave the Saints a 1-0 lead. A wild pitch scored Samson giving the Saints a 2-0 lead.

 

The Saints had their ace on the mound, Mike Devine, and he gave them another quality start. The Canaries got to him in the second on a solo homer by Mike Hart, his sixth of the season, making it 2-1.

 

In the third Max Murphy gave the Saints a 3-1 lead with a solo homer to right-center, his fifth of the season.

i>SIOUX FALLS, SD (August 27, 2020) – They shared a ballpark for the first month of the season and in their final game at Sioux Falls Stadium the St. Paul Saints were unwelcomed guests. An 11-run fourth inning helped send the Saints to a 14-2 victory over the Sioux Falls Canaries. The victory improves the Saints to 25-23 and they are now tied for the second and final playoff spot in the league and remain 2.0 games out of the top spot with 12 games to go.

 

In the first Mikey Reynolds got things started for the Saints with a single to right. With one out Max Murphy extended his hitting streak to nine with an RBI double to left-center. A walk to Chris Chinea put runners at first and second. With two outs, Chesny Young walked and that was followed by a bases loaded walk to Nate Samson forcing in Murphy giving the Saints a 2-0 lead.

 

With the Saints up 2-1 in the fourth they chased starter Alex Boshers and knocked out the Canaries with an 11-run fourth. They started the inning with five straight hits against Boshers. Drew Stankiewicz led off with a double to right. He scored on a bloop single to left by Mikey Reynolds giving the Saints a 3-1 lead. Alonzo Harris then hit a hard smash off of Boshers for an infield single putting runners at first and second. Max Murphy made it 4-1 with an RBI single. Chris Chinea gave the Saints a 6-1 lead with a two-run double. John Silviano was hit by

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 28, 2020) – A night after the St. Paul Saints hung two touchdowns and two extra points on the Sioux Falls Canaries, the Canaries repaid the favor. On Friday night at CHS Field in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500, the Canaries missed their two extra points, but downed the Saints 12-4. The loss sends the Saints to 25-24 and they are now 0.5 game out of a playoff spot behind the Canaries with 11 games to go.

 

While the Saints put up 11 runs in one inning on Thursday, the Canaries scored in five of the nine innings, including putting up a crooked number four times. They came out of the gate in the first and put up three runs while getting just one hit. Saints starter Ryan Zimmerman walked the leadoff hitter Logan Landon, hit Andrew Ely and walked Clint Coulter to load the bases. After a strikeout of Damek Tomscha, Zimmerman looked like he might get out of the inning when Alay Lago hit a ground ball to short. Nate Samson fed Drew Stankiewicz at second for the second out, but the relay throw to first was just a tad late as Landon scored making it 1-0. Jabari Henry walked and Roy Morales, who went 4-4 with four RBI on the night, singled home two giving the Canaries a 3-0 lead.

 

The Saints fought back and got to within one in the third as they loaded the bases on singles by Stankiewicz and Mikey Reynolds and a walk to Alonzo Harris. A sacrifice fly by Max Murphy

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 29, 2020) – This is not 2019. This is not the closing stretch the St. Paul Saints had during their championship run last season. For the second consecutive night the Saints gave up double-digit runs to the Sioux Falls Canaries and for the second straight night they never had the lead as they lost 10-5 in front of a sell out crowd of 1,500 at CHS Field. The loss drops the Saints to 25-25, 1.5 games out of a playoff spot with 10 games to go.

 

The difference through the first seven innings was the second inning as the Canaries scored two runs and the Saints scored one. In the top of the second inning Jabari Henry led off with a single and moved to second on a one out single by Mike Hart. With two outs Logan Landon knocked them both home with a single giving the Canaries a 2-0 lead.

 

In the bottom of the inning Nate Samson doubled and scored on a single by John Silviano making it 2-1. After that the teams traded identical runs over the next three innings.

 

In the third Damek Tomscha led off the inning with a solo homer, his ninth of the season, making it 3-1, but the Saints answered with their own leadoff homer in the bottom of the inning from Mikey Reynolds, his fifth of the season, cutting the deficit to 3-2.

 

The teams traded two spots in the fourth. The Canaries

i>ST. PAUL, MN (August 30, 2020) – A win and they were a half game out and held the tiebreaker. A loss and they were 2.5 back and didn’t hold the tiebreaker. Unfortunately, for the St. Paul Saints it was the latter. They finally got solid starting pitching, but they couldn’t do much against the Sioux Falls Canaries pitchers and dropped a 3-2 game on Sunday evening at CHS Field in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500. The loss drops the Saints to 25-26 and 2.5 games out of a playoff spot with nine game left.

 

In a rematch Tuesday’s game between the two teams, Matt Solter, of the Saints, and Tyler Danish, of the Canaries, were solid. Each gave their team a chance to win.
 

For the fifth consecutive game the Saints allowed the leadoff man in the first inning to reach as Logan Landon singled to center. For the third time in those five games he came in to score as Damek Tomscha ripped an RBI double off the glove of a leaping Chuck Taylor in left field to give the Canaries a 1-0 lead. The Saints have allowed the leadoff batter in the first inning to reach 27 times and that hitter has scored 14 times.

 

For the only time in the three-game series against the Canaries the Saints managed to tie the game. In the second, Taylor led off with a single to right. He moved to second on a groundout and advanced to third on a single from Nate Samson. J

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 1, 2020) – It was a pitching match-up for the ages. St. Paul Saints starter Mike Devine, fifth best ERA in the league, against former 12-game winner in the Major Leagues, and a man who has a no-hitter with the Florida Marlins, Henderson Alvarez. The showdown didn’t disappoint. Devine fanned the second most in franchise history, 13, but the Saints couldn’t do anything against Alvarez and lost 1-0 on Tuesday night at CHS Field in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500. The loss drops the Saints to 25-27 and they remain 2.5 games out of a playoff spot with eight to go.

 

Devine gave up a leadoff single to Brett Vertigan, but then showed a sign of things to come by striking out the next three hitters.

 

In the bottom of the first the Saints collected one of only two hits on the night. With two outs Max Murphy singled to center, but Alonzo Harris grounded into a fielder’s choice to end the inning.

 

In the second, Devine gave up the lone run of the game, but it was due in part to an error. With one out, Mason Davis was hit by a pitch. Zach Nehrir then hit a ground ball to third, but Chesny Young had the ball slip out of his hand as he went to transfer the ball from his glove to his hand. Christian Correa then knocked in the lone run with a single to right. Devine fanned Logan Trowbridge before walking

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 2, 2020) – George Tsamis has been the winningest manager in franchise history since 2007. He joined an exclusive club in 2018, winning his 1000th game overall as a manager. And on Wednesday night at CHS Field he notched win number 950 as manager of the St. Paul Saints as his club came up big offensively against the stingiest pitching team in the league, the Milwaukee Milkmen, while allowing just two hits in a 9-2 victory. The Saints will either remain 2.5 games out of a playoff spot or get to within 1.5 games, with seven to go, depending on the outcome of Sioux Falls’ game with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks.

 

The Saints had given up a run before the fourth inning in eight straight games, but on Wednesday night they were the ones to score early. Facing former Major Leaguer Drew Hutchison, the Saints used the long ball. With two outs in the first Max Murphy walked and Alonzo Harris followed with a two-run homer to left, his fifth of the season, giving the Saints a 2-0 lead.

 

In the third, Mitch Ghelfi led off with a walk and Mikey Reynolds doubled him to third. Chuck Taylor crushed a three-run homer to right, his first in four games with the Saints, making it 5-0.

 

The only hit Saints starter Nick Belzer gave up was a solo homer to Adam Brett Walker in the fourth, his league leading 21st<

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 3, 2020) – It’s becoming an all too familiar situation for the St. Paul Saints: fall behind early, try to come back, but don’t have quite enough to get over the hump. On Thursday night at CHS Field the Saints gave up five in the first and fell behind by six after two, losing 10-5 to the Milwaukee Milkmen. The loss drops the Saints to 26-28 and they remain 2.5 games out of a playoff spot with six games to go.

David Washington singled to right and Walker scored when Max Murphy had the ball go off the heel of his glove to make it 2-0. Mason Davis followed with a walk to load the bases and Zach Nehrir walked to force in a run making it 3-0. Christian Correa finished the scoring with a two-run single to center putting the Milkmen up 5-0.

 

With two outs in the second Jose Sermo sent one over the wall in center, his fifth of the year, making it 6-0.

 

The Saints got on the board in the bottom of the inning with a solo homer of their own from Alonzo Harris, his sixth of the season, cutting the deficit to 6-1.<

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 4, 2020) – The St. Paul Saints wore the road gray’s in their own home ballpark on Friday night at CHS Field. They will need to do that two more times this weekend as the Winnipeg Goldeyes are the home team. The Goldeyes made themselves right at home as the Saints lost for the sixth time in the last seven games, 8-3, in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500. The loss drops the Saints to 26-29 and they are 3.5 games out of a playoff spot with just five games left.

 

The Saints jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the third courtesy of a Mikey Reynolds solo homer, his seventh of the season and the first time in his eight year career he’s homered in back-to-back games.

 

Reynolds came calling again in the fourth. With one out Mitch Ghelfi and Drew Stankiewicz reached on back-to-back singles. Reynolds followed with an RBI single giving the Saints a 2-0 lead.

 

In the bottom of the fourth the Goldeyes got on the board courtesy of a Darnell Sweeney solo homer, his 14th of the season, cutting the Saints lead to 2-1.

 

The Goldeyes took the lead in the fifth when Jordan Greene and Kevin LaChance walked with two outs. Breland Almadova tied the game with a double off the right field wall. Saints starting pitcher, Matt Solter, then stumbled on a delivery and was ca

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 5, 2020) – Jameson McGrane gave the St. Paul Saints every last ounce he had in a stellar 3.0 inning relief appearance. Nate Samson, who wasn’t in the starting lineup, came through with the eventual game winning RBI in the 12th. The Saints pitchers punched out a franchise tying high 18 in an incredible 7-6, 12 inning, come from behind victory over the Winnipeg Goldeyes, who were the home team at CHS Field, on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500.

 

With the Saints down 6-5 in the top of the ninth, the Goldeyes turned the ball over to the all-time saves leader in the American Association, Victor Capellan. Chesny Young led off the inning with a single to center after a 10 pitch at bat. With two outs Mikey Reynolds looped a single to left moving Young to second. Chuck Taylor tied it up with a single to right as Young scored.

 

The game stayed that way until the top of the 12th when Alonzo Harris reached on an infield single and advanced to second on a throwing error by second baseman Kevin LaChance. That brought up Samson, who didn’t start the night, but was forced into action when John Silviano was thrown out of the game following his strikeout in the 10th. Samson drilled an RBI triple into the gap in right-center putting the Saints up 7-6.

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 6, 2020) – For the second time in five days St. Paul Saints starter Mike Devine took a run at the franchise single-game strikeout record. While he fell one strikeout shy again, he made his final case as the best pitcher in the American Association. Devine fanned 13 Winnipeg Goldeyes, who were the home team at CHS Field, in a dominating performance as the Saints won 7-3 in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500. Despite the win, the Saints are eliminated from playoff contention by virtue of the Sioux Falls Canaries victory over the Chicago Dogs.

 

With Post-Season All-Star ballots due Monday at noon, Devine had one final outing to pad his resume and he didn’t disappoint. He struck out at least one batter in each full inning he pitched, but the second. He retired the side in order in the first and fanned the last two batters he faced.

 

In the second, Devine got Logan Hill to groundout, walked Jordan George, the only hitter not to strikeout on the night, and got John Nester to ground into a double play.

 

Devine then went on a run of five consecutive hitters with a strikeout and six consecutive outs from the third through the fourth. The only hitter to reach over those two innings was a two out single by Kyle Martin in the fourth, the first hit of the game.

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 8, 2020) – Just because playoff positions weren’t on the line didn’t mean St. Paul Saints manager George Tsamis was going to let his pitchers hit and run the bases. Unfortunately, circumstances dictated otherwise as two position players left the game. Reliever Aaron Brown got to hit, Sunday’s starting pitcher Mike Devine scored the tying run, but it was a position player, John Silviano, that showed them both how it was done with a big home run that ultimately won the game for the Saints, 4-3, over the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Tuesday night at CHS Field in front of 1,467.

 

Saints starter Ryan Zimmerman was solid, but got touched up for three long balls, all solo shots. In the first, Player of the Year candidate Drew Ward, crushed a solo shot to right, his 16th of the season, giving the RedHawks a 1-0 lead.

 

In the fifth the RedHawks went back-to-back as Alex Boxwell, his fourth, and Brennan Metzger, his fifth, gave the RedHawks a 3-0 lead. Zimmerman went 6.0 innings allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out six.

 

In the bottom of the fifth the Saints tied the game, but not before losing two separate position players. Chesny Young led off with a walk and Nate Samson singled to left putting runners at first and second. Catcher Mitch Ghelfi, who took a foul ball off th

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 9, 2020) – The games may not mean anything in terms of playoff implications, but don’t tell that to the St. Paul Saints. They continue to play hard as they try to close the season on a strong note. The Saints got two runs in the bottom of the eighth courtesy of a throwing error and won 4-2 over the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Wednesday nigh tat CHS Field in front of 1,473. The win was their fourth in a row, the longest winning streak of the season.

 

With the two outs in the bottom of the eighth and the game tied at two, John Silviano walked. Alonzo Harris followed with a bloop double to center putting runners at second and third. Troy Alexander hit a ground ball to third that was fielded by Leo Pina, but his throw to first went wide and skipped into foul territory allowing Silviano and Harris to score giving the Saints a two-run lead.

 

That was more than enough for Jameson McGrane who locked down his league tying 16th save of the season.

 

Neither team collected a hit through the first three innings, but it was Drew Ward of the RedHawks who came calling for the second straight night against Saints pitching. With one out in the fourth, Ward deposited a pitch over the right field wall for a solo home run, his 17th of the season, giving the Saints a 1-0 lead.

i>ST. PAUL, MN (September 10, 2020) – The season began on July 3 in Sioux Falls. After a month worth of games away from their home ballpark the St. Paul Saints were able to return to CHS Field on August 4. While the ending wasn’t what they hoped, the journey throughout the season is one each player will remember. The season culminated in a 7-4 loss to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks on Thursday night in front of a sellout crowd of 1,500.

 

The RedHawks got on the board in the second when Correlle Prime walked, stole second and scored on a single by Christian Ibarra to make it 1-0.

 

In the fourth, Forrestt Allday led off with a single. With one out Prime singled him to third. A sacrifice fly by Ibarra made it 2-0 and that was followed by an RBI double from Dylan Kelly to make it 3-0.

 

The RedHawks put up two more in the fifth as Alex Boxwell got it started with a one out single. Brennan Metzger singled to put runners at first and second. A wild pitch moved the runners up and Allday’s two-run single made it 5-0.

 

In the sixth the RedHawks took a 6-0 lead on a solo homer by Kelly, his fifth of the season.

 

The Saints offense broke through in the bottom of the sixth when Chris Chinea led off with an infield single to th
