Pelicans dash past Winston-Salem 8-5 in 11

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (48-33, 8-4), Class-A Advanced affiliates of the Texas Rangers, rallied past the Winston-Salem Dash 8-5 in 11 innings on the Fourth of July at BB&T Ballpark. Playing in front of the largest crowd ever at BB&T park, Joe Maloney hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the 11th inning to lift the Birds to their sixth extra-inning win of the season. The game lasted three hours and 47 minutes following a 76 minute rain delay.

Jon Edwards (2-1) earned the win for the Birds, allowing one earned run on two hits over two innings. Joe Van Meter recorded the final three outs to notch his fourth save of the season. Jarrett Casey (1-2) was saddled with the loss for the Dash.

With the score tied 5-5 in the 11th, Luis Sardinas started the rally with a leadoff double and scored on Maloney’s sacrifice fly. Drew Robinson extended the lead with a two-run double down the right field line.

The Pelicans built a 4-0 lead after five innings. Jake Skole cracked a three-run home run in the third inning to give the Pelicans the early 3-0 lead. All three of his home runs have come on the road this season. Maloney added his first of two sacrifice flies in the fifth inning.

Skole finished 3-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored.

A Kevan Smith two-run single in the sixth and a Jeremy Farrell RBI double in the seventh helped the Dash tie the game 4-4 after seven innings. An inning later, Patrick Cantwell delivered a two-out RBI single to give the Birds a 5-4 lead.

Farrell tied the game with an RBI single off Edwards in the ninth inning.

Cantwell and Preston Beck each tallied two hits.

Right-hander Luke Jackson started for the Birds and went six innings, allowing three earned runs on four hits with eight strikeouts. Jackson had a string of five straight strikeouts in the third and fourth innings and departed with a 4-3 lead.

The Pelicans and Dash continue their four-game series Friday at BB&T Ballpark. Right-hander Nick Martinez (7-4, 2.77) will be opposed by Dash right-hander Chris Beck (7-8, 3.09). First pitch is slated for 7 p.m.
