Pulaski rolls to sixth straight win

JOHNSON CITY, TENN. — Juan Fuentes went 5-for-5 and scored three runs as the Pulaski Mariners jumped to an early lead and never relinquished it in their 7-3 defeat of the Johnson City Cardinals on Thursday night.
The win was the Mariners’ (14-8) sixth in a row, and pulls them within a half-game of the Danville Braves for first place in the Appalachian League East Division.
Nick Czyz (3-1) picked up the win for Pulaski, pitching six strong innings, allowing only one run on three hits while striking out four Cardinals. Stephen Penney and Brandon Pullen came on in relief for the Mariners and had solid outings, allowing only one run apiece.
Pulaski started the scoring in the third inning, when back-to-back doubles by Fuentes and Juan Rivero put the M’s up 1-0. Pulaski would go on to score at least one run in each of the next three innings, capping their scoring off with a three-run sixth inning.
All but one Mariners starter got a hit, scored a run, or drove in an RBI. Fuentes led the attack with two doubles on his five hits. Guy Welsh went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI’s, while Rivero knocked in two runs of his own. Recent call-up George Soto drove in a run, as did Jonathan Arias. Five different Mariners scored runs, while eight different players picked up at least one hit.
The Mariners return to Calfee Park tonight to face the Kingsport Mets. The Mariners were swept by the Mets earlier this season in Kingsport, where they were outscored by the Mets 27-11. The gates will open at 6 p.m., with first pitch set for 7 p.m.
