Twins Minor League Report (9/21): Saints Stymied on Road

Ted Schwerzler

Recommended Posts

After winning Game 1 of their postseason series last night, the Wichita Wind Surge were traveling on Wednesday. That left the St. Paul Saints as the only affiliate in action, and unfortunately, they fell short on the road.


Indianapolis 7, St. Paul 1
Box Score

Jordan Balazovic drew the start today for St. Paul and was chased after three innings. He allowed five runs on six hits while striking out four. Balazovic did give up a walk and was burned by two homers.

A five-run 3rd inning by Indianapolis put St. Paul in a bad spot early. They gave up two more in the 6th inning and before recording their first run, the Saints were staring at a seven-run deficit.

Ryan Jeffers, still working his way back on a Major League rehab assignment, hit a homer in the 8th inning to make sure the Saints wouldn’t be shut out. Trevor Larnach, also rehabbing, went 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout as the designated hitter.

Pitcher of the Day – Melvi Acosta (St. Paul) - 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

After a couple of games of hope, Balazovic returns with another ugly outing.  So disappointing.  Will be curious to see if the Twins keep him on the 40-man.  Guess it will come down to comparing him with player X who is the next man on the bubble that isn't getting added.  Unfortunately, have to believe that there is some team out there that would take the gamble of picking him up in the draft.
