Late rally puts Pulaski over Princeton

PRINCETON — A night after Tuesday’s 13-inning marathon, the Pulaski Mariners made sure they took care of business on Wednesday evening within the requisite nine-innings of play. An eighth-inning, five-run rally put the Mariners on top, and they stayed on top, defeating the Princeton Rays by a score of 6-4.
The Mariners received some solid work from the bullpen after a shaky performance from their starting pitcher, Kyle Haas. After Haas gave up four runs in just over four innings of work, Pulaski relievers Jose Rios and Brandon Pullen combined for four innings of one-hit, shutout baseball. Even more impressive than their performance on the mound was the fact that both Rios and Pullen had been added to Pulaski’s roster less than 12 hours earlier. Rios (1-0) was the winning pitcher while Pullen’s effort earned him his first save as a Mariner.
Right fielder Jose Rivero again paced the Mariner offense, going 1-for-3, including a three-run single that started Pulaski’s late-inning rally. Third baseman Mario Martinez went 3-for-5 at the plate, with a triple and two runs scored. First baseman Kris Sanchez and second baseman Deybis Benitez also contributed RBIs for the Mariners.
Pulaski (2-0) travels to Princeton (0-2) again tonight, looking to complete a three-game sweep of the Rays to start their inaugural campaign. Gates open at 6 p.m. and game time is 7 p.m.
Friday night the Mariners will play their home opener at Calfee Park versus the Elizabethton Twins. Gates will open at 6 p.m. with first pitch set for 7 p.m.
