PULASKI — The Bluefield Blue Jays put five runs on the board in the ninth inning and came away with a 13-9 win over the Pulaski Yankees in a Wednesday night slugfest at Calfee Park.

The Jays opened the scoring in the first inning on RBI singles by Angel Camacho and Ryan Sloniger to go up 2-0.

In the bottom of the second, Chad Bell hit a three-run homer, scoring Ryder Green and Madison Santos and giving the Yankees a brief lead.

Bluefield regained the lead in the third on PK Morris’ three-run homer.

Morris drove in his fourth run of the night with a sacrifice fly, followed by Sloniger’s solo homer to put the Jays up 7-3.

In the fifth inning, after Chad Bell’s single and both Anthony Volpe and Antonio Cabello were hit by pitches, Roberto Chirinos launched the first pitch over the left field wall for a grand slam to tie the score at seven .

Bluefield went back on top in eighth on a two-out Steward Berroa single.

Scotty Bradley and Berroa drove in a pair of runs each, plus another run driven in by Camacho on an error put the Jays up 13-7 in the ninth.

After Jake Farrell walked, Pulaski’s Jake Pries launched a two-run homer. But after Anthony Volpe’s double, Antonio Cabello struck out to end the game.

The two teams meet again on Thursday at Calfee Park with the first pitch at 6:30 p.m.
