Pulaski ends 4-game skid

PULASKI — The Pulaski Mariners were able to hold off a ninth inning rally by the Bristol White Sox, and walked away with a 4-3 victory Tuesday night at Calfee Park.
The win moves Pulaski (7-7) back to .500 on the season and puts them in second place in the division behind Danville. The win also ended Pulaski’s four-game losing streak.
The Mariners held a 4-0 lead on Bristol going into the top of the ninth inning when Pulaski reliever Jeff Dunbar took over on the mound.
After getting the first batter of the inning to go down on strikes, Dunbar hit the next batter with a pitch. An error by shortstop Anthony Phillips allowed another to reach base, putting two on with only one out.
Bristol’s Andrew Garcia then cleared the bases with his third homerun of the season, shrinking the Mariners’ lead to 4-3.
Dunbar regained his composure on the mound and retired the next two batters in order to seal the victory for the Mariners.
Pulaski was able to take the lead in the sixth inning when Mario Martinez doubled off Bristol reliever Michael Lucas (0-1) to lead off the inning. With two down and Martinez standing on third, three consecutive singles by Kalian Sams, Kris Sanchez and Tommy Johnson were able to plate two runs for Pulaski and put them on top 2-0.
Pulaski was able to put two more runs on the board in the eighth inning when Sanchez hit a bases loaded single to score Juan Fuentes and Jose Rivero. The White Sox were able to turn an inning-ending double play to halt any further scoring.
Pulaski received a solid outing from starting pitcher Kenn Kasparek (2-0), who pitched six innings of shutout baseball, allowing only four hits while striking out seven White Sox.
Mariners reliever Taylor Lewis also pitched well, taking over for Kasparek in the seventh inning and going two innings, allowing no runs on two hits and a walk while striking out two.
Bristol starter Joucer Martinez, who pitched five scoreless innings, held the Mariners in check.
Sanchez had another strong game for the Mariners, leading the way with three hits and two RBIs. Sams and Johnson added one RBI apiece. Sams also scored a run, as did Martinez, Fuentes and Rivero.
Pulaski will face off against Bristol again tonight at Calfee Park. Gates will open at 6 p.m. and first pitch will be at 7 p.m.
The Mariners will celebrate the Fourth of July on Friday by welcoming the Princeton Rays and number one draft pick Tim Beckham to town. Game time will be at 4 p.m.
