Pelicans split doubleheader; playoff tickets go on sale

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (73-51, 33-22) split a double-header Saturday with the Lynchburg Hillcats at TicketReturn.com Field.

The Pelicans won the continuation game 5-4 before falling 2-0 in the regularly scheduled contest. Overall, the Pelicans have won nine of their last 12 games.

The night began with the Pelicans and Hillcats resuming a game that began on June 30th at Pelicans Ballpark. Play resumed with the Pelicans leading 3-2 with nobody down and runners on first and second in the bottom of the third inning. Trever Adams added an RBI single and Joe Maloney drilled a run-producing double to give the Pelicans a 5-2 advantage.

Left-hander Will Lamb (5-0) tossed three scoreless innings out of the bullpen to get the win. His only blemish was a solo home run by Emerson Landoni in the sixth inning. A.J. Holland (4-9) was the losing pitcher, allowing four earned runs on three hits over two innings. Ryan Harvey allowed a run in the seventh inning but got the final three outs to notch his eighth save.

The Pelicans offense sputtered in the second game, managing just four hits in a losing effort. Hanser Alberto paced the attack finishing 3-for-3. Chris Grayson added the other hit while Odubel Herrera drew a pair of walks.

Right-hander Nick McBride (0-3) went the distance in a losing effort, allowing two earned runs on nine hits over seven innings. Ryan Hinson (3-2) earned the win, hurling six scoreless innings with three hits. John Cornely got the final three outs and took his seventh save.

The Hillcats game-two win was their first at Pelicans Ballpark in seven tries this season.

The Pelicans and Hillcats will play the second game of the four-game series Sunday at TicketReturn.com Field. Right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez (0-0, 6.43) will be opposed by left-hander Jose Lugo. First pitch is set for 6:05 p.m.

* The Pelicans are going to the postseason for the third straight year and postseason ticket packages are now available. The Divisional Playoffs will run from September 4-6 directly following the conclusion of the regular season.

The Pelicans will host the game on Thursday, September 5th as well as Friday, September 6th if necessary. If the Pelicans also win the second half, they would host the game on Wednesday, September 4th against Salem, Carolina or Winston-Salem. Winning the Best of Three Division Series would give the Pelicans the opportunity to host three of five games in the Mills Cup Championship Series.
