Pulaski handles JC, 5-2

PULASKI — The Pulaski Mariners defeated the Johnson City Cardinals 5-2 at Calfee Park on Wednesday night.
The Mariners recorded 11 hits to even the three-game series with the Cardinals at a game apiece.
Pulaski extended their first place lead in the East Division of the Appalachian League to 4-1/2 games as the second place Danville Braves dropped their third game in a row.
The top four hitters in the Pulaski (29-19) lineup combined to go 9-for-14 and drive in all five runs to pace the Mariners.
The duo of Mario Martinez and Juan Fuentes each had three hits, while Fuentes drove in two runs.
Dwight Britton added two hits and three runs scored, while Deybis Benitez recorded a hit and two RBIs.
With his 3-for-4 performance, Fuentes recaptured the top spot in the Appalachian League with a .369 batting average — one thousandth of a point ahead of second place.
Johnson City (25-23) got two hits from Alex Castellanos and Edgar Lara to lead their attack.
Nick Czyz (4-4) picked up the victory for the Mariners, going five innings while striking out six Cardinals. Stephen Penny and Blake Nation combined to pitch the final three innings of scoreless baseball to pick up the victory.
The two teams will wrap up their three-game series tonight, with the rubber match starting at 7 p.m.
It is back-to-school night at the ballpark, as the first 200 children through the turn styles will receive a back-to-school pack. There will also be other school supply giveaways, and the gates will open at 6 p.m.
The Mariners will head to Bluefield for a three-game series beginning Friday before returning to Calfee Park on August 11.
