AMERICA'S FAVORITE PASTIME ON AMERICAN'S FAVORITE HOLIDAY
SAINTS HOME ON SATURDAY AWAY ON SUNDAY
The Manistee Saints host the Northern Michigan Dogmen in a UBL double-header at
Rietz Park on Saturday with game time set for 1 p.m. Coach Collins has named Sam Schmitt and
Kyle Gorski to handle the pitching chores as the Saints look to return to their winning ways.
On Sunday the Saints travel to Boyne City to finish the 4-game series with the Dogmen
with Levi Irish and Austin Harper on the mound.
SAINTS DROP TWO OVER WEEKEND
The Manistee Saints had a tough weekend in Grand Rapids, getting postponed on
Saturday due to wet grounds and losing to the league leading Brewers on Sunday by 5-2 and 19-1
In Sunday’s opener, Kyle Gorski yielded just 4 hits but two were home runs powering the
Brewers to victory. The Saints only runs came on a 2-run homer by Cole Proctor.
Saints pitchers couldn’t find the plate in the nightcap and the Brewers scored 9 runs in the
1st inning to all but end the game before it started. The Saints used 4 pitchers with Levi Irish
charged with the loss.
America’s favorite pastime returns to Rietz Park on America’s favorite holiday next
Saturday when the Saints host the Northern Michigan Dogmen in a 1 p.m. double-header.
