Mariners swept in title series

ELIZABETHTON, TENN. — The Pulaski Mariners’ drive for an Appalachian League championship fell short Friday night as the Elizabethton Twins shut out the M’s 7-0 to sweep the best of three series, 2-0.
The loss ended an otherwise successful season for the Mariners, playing in their first season in the Appy League and first in Pulaski.
Pulaski entered the championship series after rather easily winning the Appy League’s East Division.
In Friday’s loss, Pulaski managed 10 hits, but couldn’t scratch on the scoreboard as they left nine runners on base.
The Twins jumped all over the Mariners and starter Brooks Mohr with two runs in the bottom half of the first and four more in the second.
The big hit in the Twins’ uprising was a two-run blast to right center in the bottom of the first by Jonathan Waltenbury.
The Twins added four more runs in the second with five singles and a walk off Mohr and reliever Stephen Penney. Mohr was charged with six earned runs in only 1 1/3 innings of work.
Penney held Elizabethton scoreless over 4 2/3 innings, giving way to Brandon Pullen who shut out the Twins in the seventh. Philip Roy allowed one run in the eighth before Blake Nation came on to retire the side.
Pulaski was led at the plate by Jonathan Arias who went 3 for 4, followed by Mario Martinez and Juan Fuentes who both went 2 for 4.
