Bluefield drops Pulaski 5-1

BLUEFIELD, WV – It couldn’t go on forever.
The Mariners knew that, eventually, their two-week long win streak, which took them from an even .500 to eleven games over, would come to an end.
It finally did Wednesday evening.
The Bluefield Orioles handed the Pulaski Mariners a 5-1 defeat Wednesday night – their first loss since July 3 – halting the Mariners’ winning streak at 11 straight games.
The loss did not impact Pulaski’s East Division lead, however, as the second place Danville Braves were also handed a loss, keeping the Mariners lead at two-and-a-half games.
Strong pitching by the Bluefield (10-18) staff held the Mariners (19-9) to one run on six hits. Orioles starter Eddie Gamboa (1-2) pitched six solid innings, giving up the only Pulaski run in the fourth inning on a double by Juan Fuentes which scored Mario Martinez, evening the game at 1-1.
Bluefield relievers Patrick Kantakevich and Jose Barajas no-hit the Mariners in the final three innings, allowing only a single Mariner to reach base via walk, and allowing none to advance past first.
The Mariners received a solid effort from starter Nick Czyz (3-2), who struck out six Orioles over five innings while giving up three runs (one earned) on seven hits. Czyz received no help from his defense, however, as a Pulaski error in the fifth extended the inning, allowing a Czyz wild pitch and a sacrifice fly to score two unearned runs for the Orioles, putting the Mariners in a 3-1 hole.
Two more runs given up on a homer off of reliever Tommy Johannesen-Ellis in the seventh inning would ultimately put the game out of reach for Pulaski.
The Mariners scattered six hits, lead by Martinez who went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Fuentes, whose RBI double in the fourth was the only other extra-base hit for the Mariners, went 1-for-4 to drop his league-leading batting average to .452, 47 points ahead of the next closest batter.
The Mariners look to start another win streak tonight as they head to West Division-leading Elizabethton in a battle of first place clubs. The Twins (18-8) took two out of three from the Mariners earlier this season when the teams squared off at Calfee Park. First pitch for tonight’s game is set for 7 p.m.
