Castle Field in Anoka was the site for the final preseason tune-up for the St. Paul Saints as they faced the Anoka Bucs and Metro Minny all stars Saturday afternoon.
After posting 25 runs against Centennial April 21, Anoka’s bats generated 19 runs the next two days, splitting a win and loss. Andover (3-2) scored a pair of runs in the top half of the sixth inning and Anoka (2-2) matched that total in the bottom of the inning but couldn’t plate one more run in the Northwest Suburban Conference loss April 22.
