Twins bring the thunder, rock Mariners 10-2

PULASKI – Mother Nature wasn’t the only one lighting up the Calfee Park sky Sunday evening. The Elizabethton Twins lit up the Pulaski Mariners for 10 runs on 14 hits, including four homeruns and nine extra-base hits, to defeat the Mariners 10-2 and take the rubber match of the three game series.
Pulaski (4-2) starting pitcher Fabian Williamson (0-1) was rocked early by the Twins (5-1), giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits while lasting only three innings. The onslaught began in the second inning when Elizabethton hitters Rene Leveret and Evan Bigley led off the inning with back-to-back homeruns. Leveret’s homerun was an opposite-field blast that cleared the 19-foot wall in right field, finally coming to rest in a private yard that sits across from the stadium.
The Twins added six runs in the fourth, ultimately batting around in the inning. Bigley led off the inning with his second homerun of the game, while Jeff Lanning, Jeanfred Brito, and Juan Richardson all contributed RBI doubles.
Pulaski reliever Tommy Johannesen-Ellis came on in an attempt to stop the bleeding, but fared no better, giving up two runs on five hits in just over an inning of work. Mariner relievers Jose Rios and Jordan Alvis were able to come in and slow the Twins’ offensive output, combining for four innings of one-run relief.
No Mariner finished the game with more than one hit on the night, with Jacob Shaffer leading the way with a triple and a run scored. Kalian Sams and Juan Fuentes each doubled, while Anthony Phillips and Mario Martinez contributed the only RBI’s of the game for the Mariners.
Elizabethton starting pitcher Danny Berlind (1-0) scattered five hits, striking out seven Mariners in six innings of work. Jarrad Eacott came on in relief for the Twins and pitched well, allowing no hits and one walk in two innings.
Mother Nature did her part to shut down the Mariner offense, opening up the skies and washing out the Pulaski-half of the ninth inning before it could even get started. After a fifteen-minute rain delay, the umpires called the game as it stood.
The Mariners will now begin a seven-day road trip that will take them to Burlington to face the Indians for three nights, Kingsport to face-off against the Mets for three nights and a one-game meeting with the Bristol White Sox. Pulaski will be back home on Monday, June 30, when the White Sox come to town.
