New Jersey native David Palladino threw seven strong innings in Pulaski's win over Greeneville Saturday evening.

Bats, Palladino Lead Pulaski to Victory

PULASKI, Va – The Pulaski Yankees swung the bats in a big way Sunday night at Calfee Park, recording a 9-3 win over the Princeton Rays before 1,832 fans who went home happy.

With the win, Pulaski (23-17) moved to within a half-game of Appalachian League East leader Princeton (23-16) on a race that looms as being hotly contested as the seas0n enters its final full month.

Center fielder Carlos Vidal and designated hitter Austin Afenir each drove in three runs, while left fielder Frank Frias hit his second homer of the season and joined Vidal and right fielder Kendall Coleman with a pair of hits.

On the mound, 6-foot-8 right-hander David Palladino became the first Pulaski starter to throw seven innings. The former Howard (Texas) Junior College star, a native of Emerson, N.J., recorded his second Yankees win, allowing six hits and three runs (two earned). He struck out four and walked a pair.

The Yankees, after a day off Monday, embark on a seven-game read trip to face the Burlington Royals (Tuesday-thru-Thursday) and Danville Braves (Friday-thru-Sunday) and Bluefield Blue Jays (Monday, Aug. 10) before returning home to host Bluefield Aug. 11.
