The Saints put two more runs on the board in the fourth, building a 4-1 lead.  FSC-J tied things up in the sixth with three runs on one hit and three SF errors.

Miranda put an exclamation point on the win with his third RBI of the game on a double in the eighth inning.  He now has 41 on the season.
