Eight Hits Secure RedHawks’ Victory at Newman Outdoor Field

07/26/2014 10:16 PM -

The RedHawks dominated the Saints’ pitching 9-4 with a big sixth inning that yielded six runs on Saturday night in Fargo, ND. The crowd of 4,215 saw the ‘Hawks awaken their bats and find five doubles and a home run out of eight total hits.

 

The newly acquired Brad Orosey, who started his first game last week, ran into trouble with St. Paul’s line up very early when he issued a lead-off walk to Devin Thaut, followed by a double by Jared McDonald. Even though he struck out the next batter, Henry Wringley belted a sacrifice fly to right field for an easy RBI to open the game 1-0.

 

With the RedHawks unable to get on the scoreboard quite yet, the Saints added one more run. It was Thaut that scored once again, this time in the top of the third on an RBI single by Willie Cabrera.

 

Ronnie Bourquin was the one to bring home the first run for the RedHawks, when he lifted a sacrifice fly to center field, allowing Sawyer Carroll to score comfortably from third, lowering the Saints’ lead to 2-1. C.J. Retherford did not hesitate, and found a gap in the left field on a 3-0 pitch for an RBI double to tie the ballgame at two apiece.

 

Sides turned, and the Saints were able to take back the lead, after a back-to-back single, Angelo Songco crossed home plate on Joe Bonfe’s double-play groundball (yielding no RBI for Bonfe). Saint Paul increased its lead to 4-2. The fourth run came when Songco came in safely on Jake Taylor’s triple to deep center field. Nic Jackson made an impressive effort trying to catch the ball, but his collision with the center field wall allowed Songco to come home easily.

 

The bottom of the sixth inning brought six runs for the RedHawks, and put the game out of St. Paul’s reach. Erik Castro led things off with a double, and with one out, Paramore hit into fielder’s choice. Brandon Trip then walked, and Sawyer Carroll added two RBIs to his stats with a deep fly-ball to right field. At that point, the score was 5-4 for the RedHawks. The home team would not give up the lead for the rest of the inning or the night, and added more.

 

Anthony Kaskadden walked, as did Penprase. Bourquin was the last nail in Saints’ coffin, bringing in three runners, Carroll, Kaskadden and Penprase, with his three RBI double.

 

The cherry on top of the cake came in the bottom of the eighth inning, when Retherford lifted a solo home run over the left field wall for his seventh of the 2014 season.

 

Kevin Fuqua collected yet another win from the ballgame, and is 5-1 on the season. Jeff Shields (now 5-5) of the St. Paul Saints suffered the loss. Nate Garcia came into a non-save situation.
