Third baseman Brad Boyer drove in four runs as the St. Paul Saints beat host Sioux Falls 6-3 on Saturday in an American Association baseball game.

Boyer hit a solo homer and had two run-scoring groundouts. Teammate Dwight Childs, a catcher, also hit a solo homer. It was Boyer's sixth homer of the season and Child's fourth.

Boyer went into the game hitting a team-high .375 — he went 2-for-4 to raise his average a bit — and tied for the team lead in RBI with 35.

He also made a big defensive play for the Saints in the seventh inning, starting a 5-4-3 double play with a diving stop while a run scored. The Canaries next hitter hit a solo homer for their third run.

The victory was the Saints' fifth in a row after a six-game losing streak. They are 22-19.


The PGA team won the 37th annual PGA/MGA Cup match on Saturday, beating the MGA team 22-18 at Indian Hills Golf Club.

Jeff Sorenson, who recently qualified for the national PGA Championship, halved his match, but among the 10 PGA winners in match play were Craig Brischke (1 up), Chris Peterson (2 and 1) and Mike Barge (3 and 1).
