Pelicans blast Wood Ducks to hand Hatch his first win

pel-GiambroneswingThomas Hatch spun 6.1 scoreless innings and both Matt Rose and Trent Giambrone blasted home runs to help the Myrtle Beach Pelicans earn a series win Saturday with a 10-2 victory over the Down East Wood Ducks from TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark.

Myrtle Beach (31-25) erupted in the bottom of the first inning off Down East (21-34) starter Jonathan Hernandez, (0-1) who made his High-A debut. With one out in the frame, P.J. Higgins  singled before advancing to third on a base hit to right field from Daniel Spingola. Spingola swiped second base with two outs in the frame to put two men in scoring position. Tyler Alamo  put the Pelicans on the board with a two-run single to center field. With Alamo on first, Rose cleared the bases with his team-leading 10th home run of the season to make the score 4-0.

That would be all the runs that Thomas Hatch (1-5) needed, as the right-hander dominated over 6.1 scoreless innings against the Wood Ducks. Hatch struck out five Down East batters and wiggled out his way out of several jams to pick up his first career win.

Robert Garcia, Andruw Monasterio  and Bryant Flete  led off the bottom of the second inning with three consecutive hits to load the bases. The Wood Ducks turned a double play that allowed Garcia to score and increased the Birds’ lead to 5-0.

The Pelicans would keep the pressure on in the fourth with a pair of runs. Monasterio kicked off the inning with his second hit of the night before advancing to second on a walk drawn from Flete. Higgins picked up his second hit of the evening with a single to left field to load the bases. Down East would turn their second bases loaded double play of the contest, allowing Monasterio to score. With two outs in the inning and Flete at third, Eloy Jimenez  delivered a two-out single to center field, which extended the Myrtle Beach lead to 7-0.

With one out in the fifth inning, Trent Giambrone  singled and Robert Garcia doubled to put men at second and third. Monasterio then laced his season-high third hit of the contest, scoring Giambrone and advancing Garcia to third. Flete would make it 9-0 one batter later, as he lifted a sacrifice fly to left field that scored Garcia.

Giambrone launched his fourth home run of the season in the seventh to make the score 10-0. Giambrone’s home run snapped a streak of 93 at-bats without a big fly for the right-handed batter.
