Mariners extend East lead

BLUEFIELD — The month of June must seem like a lifetime ago for the Pulaski Mariners.
On June 30, the Mariners had just come off of a 6-4 loss to the Bristol White Sox, their fourth loss in a row and their seventh in ten games. The loss dropped the Mariners to 6-7, several games out of first place and in danger of falling into last place in the East Division.
Then something happened. The calendar turned, June became July, and the Pulaski Mariners started winning. And kept on winning.
Monday evening the Mariners (18-8) defeated the Bluefield Orioles 7-5 en route to their tenth win in a row, improving their July record to 12-1. The win pushed the Mariners’ hold on first place to two-and-a-half games over the Danville Braves.
The Mariners used a bases-loaded triple by Jonathan Arias to cap a four-run sixth inning, propelling themselves far enough ahead to survive a four-run rally from the Orioles (9-17) in the bottom of the sixth inning.
The Mariners received a strong start from lefty Fabian Williamson (1-2), who notched his first win for the Mariners in six starts. Williamson went five innings, giving up only one run on four hits while striking out five Orioles.
After a disastrous relief appearance by Stephen Penney, in which Penney gave up more runs (four) than recorded outs (two), Pulaski was able to shut down the Bluefield bats via shutout relief by Kyle Brown and Blake Nation. Nation picked up his third save of the season.
Arias knocked in three runs for the Mariners, his seventh RBI in only eight games since being added to the Pulaski roster. Juan Fuentes went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored, raising his average to a league-leading .448. Mario Martinez, Jose Rivero and Kris Sanchez also drove in one run apiece for Pulaski.
The Mariners will look to extend their division lead and their win streak again tonight at Bluefield. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
