Pelicans score season-high 13 runs in win over Dash

Zack Short reached base five times and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ offense exploded Thursday for a season-high 13 runs to back a stellar start from Duncan Robinson in the Birds’ 13-6 win over the Winston-Salem Dash at BB&T Ballpark.

With the game scoreless in the fourth, Myrtle Beach (65-59, 22-32) broke through against Winston-Salem (49-75, 25-29) starter Dane Dunning (5-6). With one out in the frame, Jesse Hodges reached first base on a walk. After Dunning recorded the second out of the inning via a strikeout, Tyler Alamo was hit by a pitch before the bases became loaded with Robert Garcia reaching first on a fielder’s choice. An error brought in all three runners to give the Pelicans a 3-0 advantage. Roberto Caro then ripped an RBI single to left field, widening the lead to 4-0.

Short kicked off the fifth inning with a single to center field before advancing to third on a throwing error that allowed P.J. Higgins to reach first. With one out and runners on the corners, Hodges lined a single to left field to score Short and extend the lead to 5-0.  Vimael Machin followed Hodges with an RBI double to right-center field to bring in Higgins and move Hodges to third. Higgins scored on a groundout before Machin came home on a wild pitch to make the tally 8-0

Robinson (4-3) needed just 54 pitches to get through five shutout frames. The right-hander scattered just three hits to lower his ERA to 1.17 over his last five starts.

Yeyson Yrizarri singled of Myrtle Beach reliever Marc Huberman to begin the bottom of the sixth inning before Joel Booker launched a two-run home run over the left field wall to get the Dash on the board at 8-2.

Hodges and Machin kicked off the top of the seventh inning with back-to-back singles. Alamo continued the rally with a double to score Hodges. Garcia extended the Pelicans’ advantage to 10-2 with a sacrifice fly to bring home Machin.

Winston-Salem answered back in the bottom of the seventh as Matt Rose kicked off the frame with a walk before advancing to second on defensive indifference. With one out in the frame, Brandon Dulin dumped a run-scoring single into center field to plate Rose. Toby Thomas topped off the scoring in the inning with a double to left field, plating Dulin.

With the score 10-4 in the bottom of the eighth, Joel Booker kicked off the frame with a base hit before stealing second base. Bryant Flete walked, and both runners advanced into scoring position following a fly out. A groundout allowed Booker to score for the Dash’s fifth run of the contest. Winston-Salem’s final run of the game scored on a wild pitch to make the margin 10-6.

In the top of the ninth, Myrtle Beach padded their lead. Alamo kicked off the inning by walking. Garcia notched his second hit of the contest with a single to center field. Caro brought home both Alamo and Garcia with a one-out triple, pushing the score to 12-3. Following the triple, Short was hit by a pitch to put runners on the corners. Higgins drove home the final run of the game with a single to right field, widening the gap to 13-6.

Myrtle Beach begins a three-game series with Friday’s 7:05 p.m. contest at Wilmington.
