Pelicans pound out 13 hits, come back to beat Nationals

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (17-12) pounded out 13 hits Saturday and beat the Potomac Nationals 11-5 in the second game of a three-game series at Pftizner Stadium.

It was a season-high 11 runs for the Birds, who overcame a 4-1 second-inning deficit to even the series.

Trever Adams tallied three hits and matched a career-high with four runs knocked in while Drew Robinson, Royce Bolinger and Kellin Deglan all notched two hits.

The Nationals built a 5-3 lead after three innings, but the Pelicans rattled off eight straight runs to seize control.

The Birds took the lead with a three-run fifth inning. Drew Robinson started the rally with an RBI double. Following an RBI groundout from Rougned Odor, Adams laced an RBI double off the leftfield wall to put the Pelicans up 6-5.

Robinson fueled a two-run sixth-inning rally with an RBI triple, his first three-bagger of the season.

Hitless in his first three at-bats of the game, Kellin Deglan came alive late. He contributed an RBI single in the seventh inning and launched a two-run home run in the ninth.

Adams set the tone for the Pelicans. He smoked a two-run home run in the third inning and drilled an opposite field RBI double in the first inning.

The Nationals scored four runs and pounded out six hits in their first two innings. Jason Martinson hit an RBI triple and Adrian Nieto clubbed an RBI double in the first inning to spark the Nats who scored in their first three innings against left-hander Victor Payano.

Payano (2-2) battled for his second win of the season, allowing five earned runs on nine hits over six innings. The left-hander walked two and struck out five. Right-hander Joe Van Meter worked  three scoreless innings and earned his second save of the season.

Right-hander Brian Dupra (0-1) got the loss for Potomac, allowing six earned runs on five hits over four innings.

The Pelicans overcame a three-run deficit for the third time this season. It matches the largest margin the Pelicans have overcome for a win this season.

The Pelicans wrap up a three-game series with the Nationals on Sunday. Right-hander Jerad Eickhoff (2-2, 4.44) will take on right-hander Taylor Hill (3-1, 2.43). First pitch Sunday is slated for 1:05 p.m.
