Pelicans put up double digits to pound Frederick Keys

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (11-8) amassed a double digit run total for the first time this season, beating the Frederick Keys 10-3 in front  of 2,074 fans at TicketReturn.com Field. The Pelicans have won five of their last six games and have a chance to win the four-game series tomorrow night.

Right-hander Jerad Eickhoff (2-2) earned the win for Myrtle Beach, allowing just three earned runs on six hits over 7.1 innings. It was the deepest outing by a Pelicans starter this season and the deepest of his professional career. Eickhoff gave way to right-hander Phil Klein, who worked the final 1.2 innings, extending his scoreless streak to 11.2 innings on the year.

The Pelicans hit Keys starter Zach Petersime (0-2) hard, scoring twice in the third and three times in the fourth, knocking the right-hander out after 3.1 innings. Trever Adams sparked the third-inning uprising with an RBI-single and knocked Petersime out of the game in the fourth inning with a two-run double.

Adams paced the Pelicans with three hits and three knocked in while Chris Grayson, Luis Sardinas , Royce Bolinger and Jake Skole each tallied two hits. All nine Pelicans starters reached base while seven of the nine tallied at least one hit.

The Pelicans built an 8-0 lead in the game following a three-run fifth inning which featured an RBI single from Skole and a sacrifice fly from Grayson.  Grayson doubled in the seventh inning to spark a two-run inning.

The Keys got all three of their runs on a pair of home runs. Steve Bumbry hit a solo home run in the sixth inning and Jason Esposito added a two-run shot in the eighth inning.

A night after the Pelicans lost their most lopsided game of the season, the Pelicans claimed their most one-sided win of the season.

Grayson has extended his on-base streak to 10 straight games.

The Pelicans have won six of their nine home games this season.

The Pelicans continue a seven-game home stand tomorrow as the two teams play the final game of a four-game series. Right-hander Alec Asher (1-1, 4.91) starts for Myrtle Beach and he’ll be opposed by right-hander Zach Davies (1-1, 4.50). First pitch is on tap for 7:05 p.m.
