Mariners edge Princeton, 2-1

PRINCETON — The Pulaski Mariners have opened their 2008 season with a bang, completing a three-game sweep of the Princeton Rays Thursday evening with a 2-1 victory.
The Mariners received a strong pitching performance from their starter, Jose Jimenez (1-0). Jimenez went five scoreless innings, scattering four hits while striking out eight Rays. Andres Esquibel pitched a wild ninth inning, stranding the tying run on third to pick up his first save of the season.
Pulaski’s bats were much quieter on Thursday than they had been the previous two nights, collecting a total of six hits — all singles. Princeton spoiled their strong pitching performance, however, by committing four errors in the game.
One of those errors occurred with two outs in the top of the sixth inning, allowing Mariner third baseman Mario Martinez to score the go-ahead run.
Martinez led the Mariner offense, going 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored. Right fielder Jose Rivero also contributed, going 1-for-4 with a run scored. Catcher Juan Fuentes knocked in the only RBI for the Mariners while going 1-for-4.
Pulaski (3-0) faces off against the Elizabethton Twins (3-0) tonight at Historic Calfee Park. It will be the first home game of the season for the Mariners, and an opening night celebration is planned.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. with game time at 7 p.m.
The Elizabethton Twins are a perennial power in the West Division of the Appalachian Legue.
