Ouch! Mariners give up 21

DANVILLE – Although one wouldn’t know it by looking at the final box score, the Pulaski Mariners actually held the lead at one point in Friday night’s game versus the Danville Braves.
The Mariners took an early lead in the second inning when Jonathan Arias hit a solo homerun in to put the M’s up 1-0.
Unfortunately for the Mariners, baseball games are nine innings long, not two.
The Danville Braves put up 21 runs on 23 hits en route to a 21-2 drubbing of the Pulaski Mariners.
The Mariners (26-17) dropped two-out-of-three in Danville (24-20), and now have to face the Braves again for a three-game set at Calfee Park. With the series win, the Braves were able to cut Pulaski’s lead in the East Division to 2-1/2 games.
Friday’s game started inauspiciously enough, with Pulaski starting pitcher Nick Czyz holding the Braves scoreless over the first two innings of play.
All hopes of a Pulaski victory were dashed when the Braves jumped on top in the third inning, scoring six runs off of Czyz (3-4) and reliever Jordan Alvis.
Alvis took the hill again to start the fourth inning and receiived a rude welcoming, giving up six earned runs in the inning without ever registering an out.
Tommy Johannesen-Ellis fared no better for the Mariners, giving up an additional seven runs over two full innings of work.
All told, the Braves scored 21 runs over a four inning stretch between the third and the sixth. The scoring was finally halted when Pulaski reliever Kyle Brown held Danville scoreless over the final two innings of baseball.
The Mariners were able to cut into the Danville lead by a fraction when, down by 20 runs, the M’s scored in the top of the seventh on Gabriel Noriega’s run-scoring fielder’s choice, that plated Arias.
Arias was the M’s lone bright spot Friday night, going 3-for-4 with the aforementioned solo homer and two runs scored.
The Mariners will attempt to strike back Sunday evening when they face off against the Braves again – this time within the friendly confines of Calfee Park, where the Mariners are 12-7 for the season. Game time is set for 7 p.m.

PUL – 010 000 100 – 2 7 2
DAN – 006 852 00x – 21 23 2
WP – Clemens (3-1)
LP – Czyz (3-4)
HR – PUL: J. Arias (2).
