Saints hang on for 6-5 victory over Storm Chasers

21 July 2023

Kyle Garlick hit an RBI double in the ninth inning, bringing in what proved to be a crucial insurance run as the St. Paul Saints just barely held on for a 6-5 victory over the Omaha Storm Chasers Thursday night at Werner Park in Papillion, Neb.

The Storm Chasers (43-36), trailing 6-2 in the bottom of the ninth, scored three runs off Patrick Murphy before he was able to strike out Nate Eaton to end the game. Murphy picked up the save, and Austin Brice pitched a hitless sixth inning to earn the win.

Garlick extended his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games, finishing the night 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Jorge Polanco, in his third game of a rehab assignment with the Saints (55-37), went 0 for 3 with a walk. Trevor Larnach ended an 0-for-22 skid with a 440-foot solo home run in the sixth inning, and Andrew Bechtold hit his eighth homer of the season on a two-run blast as part of a four-run seventh inning for St. Paul.

Simeon Woods Richardson gets the start for the Saints on Friday when they take on the Storm Chasers in the fourth of their six-game series. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
