Pulaski sweeps twin bill from Princeton

PULASKI – The Pulaski Mariners swept a doubleheader Sunday night at Calfee Park to run their season record against the Princeton Rays to 6-0.
The Mariners used a Blake Trinkler two-run homerun to take the first contest 5-4 before Kenn Kasparek threw six innings of two-hit, one run ball to sweep the Rays in the nightcap 11-4.
In game one, Pulaski (11-8) took an early lead on Princeton (8-12) when Kris Sanchez’s RBI double in the second inning scored Jose Rivero to put the Mariners on top 1-0.
The Rays struck back with two outs in the third inning when they were able to capitalize on Mariner mistakes to score four unearned runs to take a 4-1 lead.
Pulaski was able to close the gap in the fourth on Kalian Sams two-run homer, his fifth homerun over four games.
After an hour-and-a-half long rain delay in the middle of the fifth inning, the Mariners jumped on top for good when Trinkler launched his two-run bomb in the sixth.
Philip Roy and Jeff Dunbar combined to pitch four perfect innings to shut down the Rays. Dunbar (1-0) picked up the win in relief, while Roy ran his scoreless inning streak to 11 straight.
For game two, Kasparek toted the rubber and struck out nine Rays in six innings, while allowing just an infield single to Jeremy Beckham in the third and a solo home run to Burt Reynolds in the fourth. Pulaski answered with 11 straight runs over the next three innings to seal the victory.
Sams had a two-run single to lead a five-run fourth inning before the Mariners added two more runs to their lead in the fifth. Guy Welsh smacked a three-run homerun in a four-run sixth inning to put the Mariners on top 11-1.
Kasparek (3-0) earned the victory in game two. Jamie Bagley (1-1) suffered the loss for Princeton in game one as Kevin Chavez (1-2) was saddled with the loss in the second game.
Sams paced the Mariner offense in both games, totaling four RBI’s in the doubleheader. Trinkler contribute three RBI’s, while Sanchez gathered three hits, two RBI’s, and three runs scored on the night.
Tim Beckham, the Tampa Bay Rays number one overall draft pick in June’s MLB First-Year Player’s Draft, had a series to forget as he went 1-for-9 against the Mariners in the three-game series.
Pulaski is off Monday night before traveling to Johnson City on Tuesday to start a three game series with the Cardinals.
The Mariners will return home on Friday, July 11 to start a three game series with the Kingsport Mets.
