Mariners back home, lead at 6 1/2

GREENEVILLE, TENN. — The Pulaski Mariners got a chance Sunday night to take a break and rest up for the home-stretch of the 2008 regular season as no games were played in the Appalachian League.
The one-day break came on the heels of another Pulaski win Saturday night, 8-4, over the Greeneville Astros — the same team Pulaski faces tonight as the Mariners open their last regular season homestand.
Greeneville is the opponent through Wednesday, and then Johnson City comes to town through Saturday. The Mariners close out the regular season on the road at Bristol for three games.
Pulaski is close to sewing up the East Division race. The Mariners (36-22) currently sit 6 1/2 games in front of Danville and 9 1/2 in front of Bluefield in the East. With nine games left to play, the Mariners’ magic number rests at 3.
If Pulaski can maintain its lead, they will enter the Appalachian League championship series next Wednesday, Aug. 27 with a home game against the West champion. The Elizabethton Twins currently stand 5 games out in front in the West Division.
The championship series is a best-of-three, with the team sporting the best regular season record hosting the first game, with their opponent hosting game two and three if a third game is necessary.
Saturday, Pulaski continued its winning way by jumping on Greeneville early. The Mariners posted three runs in the top of the second and two more in the top of the third. Kris Sanchez keyed the Mariner uprising with a two-run double in the second and a two-run homer in the third.
A three-run Greeneville eight made the final score look closer than the game really was.
Nick Czyz (6-4) started and got the win for Pulaski.
