Pulaski shutout by Elizabethton

ELIZABETHTON, TN – The Elizabethton Twins scored six runs over the first two innings on their way to a 9-0 shutout of the Pulaski Mariners Friday night.
The Mariners (20-10) – who had not been held scoreless through 29 games this season – maintained their two-and-a-half game hold on first place in the East Division over the Danville Braves, who also lost on Friday night.
The Twins (19-9) had it going both ways on Friday as their bats cranked out nine runs on nine hits – including two homeruns – while their pitching staff held the Mariners to a paltry three hits.
Elizabethton wasted no time getting the beat-down started, as hitter Dominic De La Osa homered to leadoff the game for the Twins. Things didn’t get any easier for Pulaski starting pitcher Taylor Lewis (0-1) as Lewis gave up a total of six runs on five hits in two innings.
Lewis was mercifully lifted in the third inning for reliever Jose Rios, who managed to keep the Twins off of the scoreboard until the fifth, when Elizabethton was able to put up three more runs to extend their lead to 9-0.
Mariners’ relievers Brent Gaphardt and Stephen Penney were able to shutdown the Twins’ offense, no-hitting Elizabethton over the final three innings.
Unfortunately for the Mariners, the damage had already been done.
Elizabethton starter Bobby Lanigan pitched a near-flawless game, allowing no runs on three hits over seven innings. Lanigan also managed to rack up eight K’s.
The Mariners were able to get even less done against Twins’ relievers Kyle Carr and Mark Hamburger, who allowed no base runners over the final two innings to complete the shutout.
Dwight Britton managed to get the only extra-base hit for Pulaski, a double in the seventh inning. George Soto and Tommy Johnson each finished the game with one hit apiece.
Catcher Juan Fuentes, who is sporting a league-leading .443 batting average, was held hitless for the first time in over two weeks, going 0-for-2 before being lifted in the sixth inning for Johnson.
The Mariners will finish their series against Elizabethton on Sunday evening at 7 p.m. before finishing up their road trip with a three-game set against the second place Danville Braves.
The Mariners will return to Calfee Park on Wednesday, July 23 for a six-game home stand. They will begin with a three-game series versus the Burlington Royals before finishing up against the Princeton Rays.

PUL 000 000 000 – 0 3 1
