Mariners continue streak, beat Mets 5-1

PULASKI – The Pulaski Mariners are so hot, not even Mother Nature can cool them off. The Mariners extended their win streak to nine straight Sunday night at Calfee Park, defeating the Kingsport Mets 5-1 in a rain-shortened, six-inning affair.
The victory marks the third-straight series sweep for the Mariners (17-8), who now extend their first place lead over the Danville Braves to one-and-a-half games.
Pulaski wasted no time getting to Kingsport (12-13) starting pitcher Mark Cohoon (1-1), opening the first inning with four runs on three hits.
Those four runs would be all that the Mariners would need as Pulaski’s diminutive starting left-handed pitcher, Jose Rios (3-2), would hold the Mets to one run on four hits, striking out seven over six innings of work. Rios was set to continue his dominance on the hill when the rains came in the bottom of the sixth inning and washed out the remainder of the game.
Jose Rivero and Guy Welsh comprised the Pulaski offense, combining for all five of the Mariners’ RBI’s. Rivero was 2-for-3 with three RBI’s and a run scored, while Welsh was 1-for-2 with a double and two RBI’s. Mario Martinez continued his hot hitting, going 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored. Martinez has 16 hits over his last 10 games for a .457 batting average.
The Mariners hit the road tonight to begin a grueling nine-day, three-city road trip, beginning in Bluefield. The Mariners have not yet faced the Orioles this season.
The Mariners will return to Historic Calfee Park on Wednesday, July 23 to face the Burlington Royals.

M’s move into first with win over Mets

PULASKI – The Pulaski Mariners celebrated their eighth straight victory Saturday night with a move into first place in the East Division of the Appalachian League.
Solid bullpen work coupled with four unanswered runs late put the Mariners (16-8) on top of the Mets (12-12) 8-7 at Calfee Park.
The Mariners were able to recover from a shaky defense and a shaky start by pitcher Taylor Lewis, who was making his first start for Pulaski this season. Lewis gave up six runs – although only three were earned – on seven hits in just over two innings of work.
Andres Esquibel came on in relief for the Mariners and helped shut down the Kingsport offense, allowing only one run in three innings.
Philip Roy continued his dominance on the mound for the Mariners, coming on in the seventh inning and completely shutting down the Mets, picking up the win in relief. Roy (2-0) has not allowed an earned run in 15 innings this season, giving up only five hits.
The Pulaski bats never let the team fall more than three runs behind Saturday night, scoring four runs in the first two innings, and scoring an additional four over the last four innings. Juan Fuentes scored Blake Trinkler on a single in the seventh inning to put the Mariners up for good.
Fuentes was one of five different Mariners to knock in a run in the game, with himself and Mario Martinez leading the way with two apiece. Dwight Britton and Trinkler each scored two runs apiece, with four additional M’s scoring runs on the night.
