Jackson pitches Pelicans to fourth consecutive victory

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (10-7) won their fourth straight game Monday, upending the Frederick Keys 3-2 in front of 1,405 fans at TicketReturn.com Field. The first place Pelicans are 5-2 on their home field this season and hold the best record in the Carolina League.

Right-hander Luke Jackson (3-0) earned the win in his deepest outing of the season, allowing just three hits with five strikeouts over six scoreless innings. Tyler Wilson (0-1) took the loss, allowing three runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings. Nick McBride recorded the final seven outs and earned his second save. The Keys threatened late in the game, stranding the potential tying runs on base in the eighth and ninth innings.

Rougned Odor hit a two-run double in the third inning, his team-leading sixth two-bagger of the season. The Pelicans threatened to add more during the frame but stranded the bases loaded. The Pelicans pounded out 11 hits on the night but stranded 11 men on base.

Preston Beck tallied a game-high three hits, including an RBI infield single in the fifth inning. Chris Grayson and Odor each doubled and recorded two hits on the night.

The Keys scored a run in the seventh inning on a Brenden Webb RBI-single. With the bases loaded and one out, Will Lamb struck out Jerome Pena and Nick McBride got Glynn Davis to fly out to end the threat. The Keys had two runners aboard in the eighth inning, but McBride picked off Sammie Starr to end the inning.

Steve Bumbry doubled in a run in the ninth inning to pull the Keys to within one. With Bumbry on second, McBride struck out Davis to end the game.

The Pelicans bullpen has converted six of their eight save opportunities this season.

The Pelicans continue a seven-game home stand tomorrow as the two teams play the second game of a four-game series. Left-hander Victor Payano (1-1, 1.88) gets the start and he’ll be opposed by left-hander Tim Berry (0-1, 3.180. First pitch is on tap for 7:05 p.m.
