Rain pushes Pelicans into doubleheader firecracker

BatterThe Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, had their game with the Salem Red Sox suspended due to rain on Thursday. The game was suspended with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning with no runners on and Salem leading 1-0. The game will resume on Friday, July 3, at 5:05 p.m. ET. The resumption Thursday’s game will be a nine-inning contest while the second game will be a seven-inning affair. The second game will be played approximately 30 minutes after the completion of Thursday’s suspended contest, or 7:05 p.m. ET, whichever is later.

Fans with tickets from Thursday’s game can exchange those tickets for a ticket of equal or lesser value to any future Pelicans regular season game during the 2015 regular season or beyond, subject to availability. Tickets to the regularly scheduled game on Friday, July 3, will be good for both games.

With two outs in the first inning, Red Sox second baseman Wendell Rijo snuck a line-drive home run over the left-field wall to shift Salem out in front, 1-0. Left fielder Yoilan Cerse smashed a double off the left field wall in the next at-bat, but Pelicans starter Tyler Ihrig retired the next batter he faced to escape the frame.

Ihrig would strike out four more batters while walking just one in his five innings on the mound. Rijo’s homer was the only run off the Pelicans’ lefty, who scattered six hits.

Carlos Penalver was batting in the bottom of the fifth with a full count when the game was put into a delay due to lightning, and after a one-hour, six-minute delay, the game was officially suspended.

Jacob Rogers and Trey Martin collected the only two hits before the delay. Rogers beat the infield shift with a single to shortstop in the second while Martin singled on a bunt hit to second base. Penalver was the only other Pelicans baserunner, drawing a walk in the second. Red Sox starter Trey Ball collected a pair of strikeouts and walked one in his four-plus innings before the game was suspended.

Right-hander Jen-Ho Tseng (2-5, 4.66) will get the start for the Pelicans while Salem counters with righty Teddy Stankiewicz (2-8, 4.00).
