Adam Frost's two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning drove in Jonathan Van Every with the winning run as the St. Paul Saints beat the Wingnuts 4-3 on Friday night in St. Paul, Minn.
With one out in the ninth Alex Garabedian walked. Van Every then hit a one-out double off Wingnuts reliever Jared Simon. Brent Clevlen played the ball of the fence and fired it to Josh Horn, whose relay throw cut down Garabedian at the plate for the second out. Frost followed with the game-winning hit.
Wichita trailed 3-1 before rallying for two runs in the sixth thanks to a pair of throwing errors by Frost. The first allowed Cleven to reach base, and he scored on a sacrifice fly by Josh Workman. The second error came on Edwin Bellorin's slow roller and let Jose Delgado score.
Jose Duran drove in the Wingnuts' first run in the second inning with the first of his three hits.
