PRINCETON, W.Va. — After two strong outings at the plate against Princeton, the Mariners’ bats were silenced by the Rays’ hurlers Wednesday, as they managed just four hits in the 6-0 loss at Hunnicutt Field.
The Rays (29-33) took control with a big first inning, using two singles, a Luke Taylor wild pitch and a two-RBI double from Justin O’Conner to make it a 4-0 game.
They then extended their advantage over Pulaski by adding two runs in the third on back-to-back sacrifice flies from Cameron Seitzer and Jake Depew to make it 6-0.
Pulaski (28-34) was held down the majority of the night by the Rays’ solid pitching, putting just one runner in scoring position, when Daniel Paolini doubled in the seventh inning.
Princeton starter Matthew Spann tossed six innings of two-hit ball, allowing just one walk with six strikeouts to push his record to 4-0.
