Pulaski Sweeps Pair, Ties for First Place

PULASKI, Va. – The Pulaski Yankees scored a pair of seven-inning wins over the Bluefield Blue Jays, 7-0 and 9-2, before 1,605 fans at Calfee Park Tuesday night.

The twin wins allowed the Yankees to tie the Princeton Rays for first place in the Appalachian League East.

In the first game, the makeup of a rainout in Bluefield Monday, Righties Melvin Morla, who threw five innings, and Juan Jimenez combined to limit the Blue Jays (18-29) to just one hit, a single by Bluefield DH D.J. McDonough. Right fielder Kendall Coleman went 3-for-3 and hit his fifth homer of the season to lead the Yankees.

The nightcap, the regularly scheduled affair, featured another strong pitching effort by lefty Nestor Cortes, who evened his record at 2-2 with a 2.47 ERA. Right fielder Frank Frias hit his third homer of the season and drove in four runs to pace the winning attack.

The teams conclude their three-game series at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Calfee Park.
