M’s fall 6-1

PULASKI — During a game in which the rain delay lasted almost as long the game itself, the Princeton Rays avoided a season sweep and defeated the Pulaski Mariners 6-1 Monday night at Calfee Park.
The loss was the first by the Mariners (25-15) to the Rays (15-21) in nine match-ups this season. The M’s continue to hold a 3-1/2 game lead on the Danville Braves for first place in the East Division of the Appalachian League.
The teams had barely gotten out of a scoreless first inning before a severe thunderstorm blew into Pulaski, sending fans and players alike scrambling for protection. After a two-hour-plus rain delay, the teams re-took the saturated field and commenced with the game.
The M’s may have been a little tight following the delay as they immediately allowed a wild pitch followed by a Mayobanex Acosta single to score Eli Sonoqui and put the Rays up 1-0. Sonoqui had reached first base over two hours earlier on a walk prior to the delay.
The Rays built upon their lead as they put up two more runs in the top of the third on a Burt Reynolds homerun, followed by three runs in the top of the fifth inning.
The Mariners finally got on the board in the bottom of the sixth inning when Guy Welsh connected for a solo shot. It would be the Mariners’ only run of the game, as the Rays would shut them down the rest of the way to seal their 6-1 victory.
Pulaski is off today and will take the field again Wednesday, July 30 for a three game series at Danville. This series will be an important one for the Mariners, as Danville currently sets in second place in the East Division.
The Mariners will return home on Saturday, August 2 for another series against Danville and a series versus Johnson City.
