Pelicans swept at home after falling in 14th to Blue Rocks

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (29-19) dropped their third straight game Sunday, falling 9-6 in 14 innings to the Wilmington Blue Rocks.

The Pelicans were swept in a series for the first time since last August and now lead Winston-Salem by 4.5 games in the Southern Division.

With the score tied 5-5, the Blue Rocks scored four times in the top of the 14th inning. The go-ahead run scored on a throwing error from Kevin Torres, one of four errors in the inning. Lane Adams added a two-RBI single in the inning. The Pelicans committed seven errors in the game.

The Pelicans carried a 4-3 lead into the eighth inning but Wilmington’s Justin Trapp tied the game with a solo home run to left field. A sacrifice fly from Cheslor Cuthbert put the Blue Rocks up 5-4.  A half inning later, the Pelicans tied the game following a balk from Robinson Yambati.

The Pelicans finished 2-for-20 with runners in scoring position and left 11 men on base. The Pelicans had the potential winning run in scoring position in the 11th, 12th and 13th innings.

Kellen Moen (1-0) earned the win out of the bullpen for the Blue Rocks, tossing three innings of one-run, three-hit baseball. Francisco Mendoza (0-1) was saddled with the loss, surrendering four unearned runs in the final inning.

The Pelicans took the early lead with four runs on five hits in the first inning. Trever Adams and Royce Bolinger laced RBI singles and Chris Grayson slashed an RBI double. Meanwhile, Wilmington stranded the bases loaded in each of their first three offensive innings. They had the based juiced with nobody down in the second. Wilmington left 18 total runners on base in the game.

Pelicans starter Nick Martinez did not qualify for the win, allowing two unearned runs on seven hits over 3.2 innings. The Birds used six total pitchers in the game.

Luis Sardinas, Trever Adams and Royce Bolinger all recorded three hits for the Pelicans.
