Nathan Mikolas' fourth homer of the season produced Pulaski's lone run Saturday night.

Pulaski Stuns Princeton with Five-Run Ninth

PULASKI, Va. – How about this for an Appalachian League comeback by the Pulaski Yankees?

Trailing the Princeton Rays 4-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth, Tony Franklin’s club rallied with five runs to steal a ballgame by a 6-4 score Friday night. In boosting their record to 11-7, the Yankees took over sole possession of first place in the Appalachian League East. The Rays dropped to 9-8.

The catalysts of the comeback – each hitting home runs to fuel the decisive rally – were Nathan Mikolas and Carlos Vidal, who have been hotter than the weather the last few days. The duo thrilled a crowd of 2,023 at Calfee Park. Billy Fleming chipped in with three hits and boosted his average to .444, while Matthew Duran had a pair and is hitting .344. Frank Frias has also swung a good bat of late and is at ,333.

Right-hander David Sosebee, who allowed just a single run and three hits in a strong four-inning effort, emerged with his first win of the season.

The Yankees, after a quick stop at home, hop on the bus and open a three-game series vs. the Greeneville Astros at Pioneer Park at 6 Saturday evening.
