PULASKI, Va. — Alexander Vizcaino kept the Kingsport Mets in check Saturday, pitching the Pulaski Yankees to a 5-1 win — and three-game Appalachian League series sweep — at Calfee Park.

Vizcaino (3-3) worked seven full innings on the mound for the Yankees (29-28). He gave up one run on one hit with eight strikeouts and two walks. Gilmael Troya pitched the final two innings to complete the one-hitter.

Carlos Navarez finished 2-for-3 with an RBI and Max Burt went 2-for-5 for Pulaski.

Jarred Kelenic got the K-Mets’ lone hit. Kelenic also scored the only run for Kingsport (28-28) when he came home on Shervyen Newton’s sacrifice fly in the fourth inning.

That run cut the Pulaski lead to 2-1, but the Yankees responded with three runs in the fifth inning to pull away.

Matt Cleveland (1-3) took the loss. He worked four innings, giving up four runs on five hits with five walks and three strikeouts.

Kingsport’s road trip continues Sunday with a doubleheader at Greeneville. The first game is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
