RedHawks Beat Saints 5-3, Boleska picks up Record Saves Mark

With the win, the RedHawks are the first team in the American Association to get to 50 wins and are now 50-27 overall this season.

Eric Campbell hit an RBI double in the third, Buddy Sosnoskie hit an RBI infield single that scored Zach Penprase from second in the fourth, and Delgado hit a solo home run in the fifth to put the RedHawks ahead 5-1.

The Saints narrowed the RedHawks lead to 5-3 in the sixth after a Willie Cabrera single drove in Adam Frost and Jose Hernandez.
