Cortes Sparkles Again for Pulaski

BRISTOL, Va. – Pulaski Yankees left-hander Nestor Cortes, who was named to the Appalachian League All-Star Team last week, improved to 6-3 with a solid six-inning effort as the Yankees (42-23) topped the Bristol Pirates (28-33) Saturday night.

The 20-year-old Cortes, a native a Hialeah, Fla., lowered his ERA to 2.26 before 817 fans at DeVault Memorial Stadium. He is certain to rise in the Yankees’ prospect lists over the winter.

Right-fielder Frank Frias, who is hitting .291 and has put together a strong season, paced the Pulaski offense with three hits, a home run – his fourth – and a pair of RBIs. Center fielder Jose Javier added a pair if hits to back Cortes. Righty Eduardo Rivera notched his first save with a scoreless three-inning stint.

The Yankees will close the regular season with a three-game series at Johnson City, meeting the Cardinals at 6 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. They will then enter the Appalachian League playoffs as Appalachian East champions and at least one home game at Calfee Park.
