Season Wrap-up

August 20, 2014

The Manistee Saints finished their 2014 season with a 15-22 record and a fifth place finish in the GCBL with a 10-12 mark; it was the first time in 8 seasons the Saints have not qualified for the league championship series.

Three players hit the ball at better than a .300 clip with Nick MacGirr leading the way at .340; Roddy MacNeil at .318 and Clint Druckenmiller at .316 also broke the .300 mark.

Clint Druckenmiller paced the pitching staff with 5 wins while Chris Konsella finished the season with a perfect 3-0 record and a 1.08 e.r.a.

Druckenmiller was selected Saints Player of the Year by a vote of his team-mates.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR FANS AND SPONSORS FOR A GREAT YEAR!

 

Saints Season Ends With Split

August 17, 2014

The Manistee Saints season ended abruptly in Pinconning on Sunday as the Saints split a

 

pair of games with the Tigers eliminated them from the GCBL play-offs for the first time in 8

 

years.

      In the opener the Saints took a 2 run lead into the bottom of the 7th inning but the bullpen

 

could not hold the lead and allowed 3 runs without a hit to give Pinconning a 6-5 win. Payton

 

Tyndall worked the first 6 inning s for the Saints allowing just 4 hits while striking out 8 before

 

Clint Druckenmiller was charge with the loss.

 

Jim Virden had a 3 run homer for the Saints and Druckenmiller collected a pair of doubles.

 

In the nightcap, Zach Perry pitched a 5 hit shut-out for the Saints and Steve Konsella’s two

 

run single provided all the run support the Saints would need.

 

Saturday’s games at Rietz Park were cancelled after 4 innings due to rain.

 

Saint Home Finale on Saturday

August 14, 2014

The Manistee Saints close out the regular portion of their schedule this weekend, clinging to

 

hopes for a spot in the GCBL championship series next weekend.

 

      On Saturday the Saints host the Hesperia Predators at Rietz Park in a double-header

 

scheduled to start at noon. Probable starting pitchers for the Saints are Clint Druckenmiller and

 

Chris Konsella. Saturday will be Fan & Sponsor Appreciation Day at the park.

 

     On Sunday the Saints travel to Pinconning for a double-header with the Tigers with Zach

 

Perry and Payton Tyndall expected to take the mound.

 

 

Saints Win Two of Three

 

The Manistee Saints lost a Great Lakes UBL game to the Michigan Area Braves on Saturday 7-0 and swept a double-header from the Sidney Bears on Sunday by scores of 7-2 and 8-7.

On Saturday the Saints inducted Dan Mesyar, Mike Ward, and Fred Thiemann into their baseball Hall of Fame but couldn’t solve the slants of Matt Theiss and dropped a 7-0 game to the Braves. Payton Tyndall absorbed the loss for the Saints.

In the opener on Sunday, Chris Konsella went the distance on the mound for the Saints and limited Sidney to 6 hits while Clint Druckenmiller’s long double gave the Saints their lead runs.

In the nightcap, 4 Saints pitchers limited Sidney to just 3 hits to overcome a porous defense to lead the Saints to the one run victory. Roddy MacNeil collected 3 hits and Nick MacGirr added two in the Saints late win.

The Saints are on the road next Saturday and return home on Sunday to host the St. Louis Spirits.
