Pulaski Yankees Make Bristol Pirates Walk The Plank

The Pulaski Yankees (6-5) put their offensive prowess on display at Historic Calfee Park Sunday night shutting out the Bristol Pirates (6-5) sealing a 12-0 win. Yankees starter Zak Wasserman picked up his first win of the season pitching five innings allowing five hits while walking two and striking out two. Pirates’ starter Nestor Oronel was tagged with the loss pitching for 4.1 innings allowing three runs on four hits while walking one and striking out five. The teams do battle in game three of the four-game set Monday at 4 p.m.

It was all Pulaski as the hit parade started in the third inning and kept going through the eighth inning. Dermis Garcia got the night started with a solo home run that went sailing over the left field wall to give Pulaski a 1-0 lead.

With one out in the fifth, Josh Gardiner hopped aboard with a free ride after being hit by a pitch. It was then Estevan Florial’s turn to homer with a no-doubter clearing center field to make it 3-0. Isiah Gilliam then drew a walk and scored on a double from Kevin Cornelius before a strikeout ended the half.

A bomb from Cornelius highlighted a six-run sixth inning to give the Yankees a commanding 10-0 lead. It was his fifth of the season and garnered him his 17th RBI. Garcia hit a second monster shot to almost the same place in left to go up 11-0 before the final run crossed the plate in the eighth. Florial singled and scored on a triple from Welfrin Mateo.
