Torrid Torres helps Pelicans take twinbill from Mudcats

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (8-7) won both games of a twinbill Saturday, beating the Carolina Mudcats (6-9) 3-2 in game one and by a 6-3 final in game two.

Kevin Torres hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the second contest and finished with three hits and three RBIs on the night. The Pelicans will try to win the series tomorrow at Five County Stadium.

Right-hander Ryan Harvey (2-0) earned the game-two win, working two scoreless innings out of the Pelicans bullpen. Righty Owen Dew (1-2) took the loss, allowing four earned runs on five hits, including a pair of Pelicans home runs. Jon Edwards tallied two scoreless innings to earn his second save.

The Pelicans overcame a 3-0 deficit to win the second game. The Pelicans scored two runs apiece in the third, fourth and fifth innings of game two. Rougned Odor added a two-RBI single in the third. After Torres went deep in the fourth, Trever Adams stroked a two-run shot in the fifth.

Right-hander Joe Van Meter started game one and got a no decision, allowing three earned runs on seven hits over three innings.

The Mudcats recorded two hits and two walks in the fourth inning of game two but did not plate a run in the frame. Overall, Carolina left 10 men on base in the game.

The Pelicans bullpen combined for six scoreless innings on the evening. Right-hander Alec Asher (1-1) started game one and got the win, allowing two earned runs on four hits over five innings. Will Roberts (0-3) took the loss, surrendering three earned runs on five hits over five innings. The right-hander struck out five straight during the third and fourth innings. Arlett Mavare tossed two perfect innings and grabbed his second save.

The Pelicans scored three runs in the second inning of the opening game. Jake Skole capped the rally with a two-out RBI single to right-center field.

It was the Pelicans first double-header since sweeping a double-dip at Five County Stadium on June 9, 2012. The three-run deficit in the second tilt is the largest the Pelicans have overcome to win a game this season.

The Pelicans and Mudcats play the final game of the series tomorrow afternoon at Five County Stadium. First pitch is slated for 2 p.m. Right-hander Nick Martinez (1-1, 3.18) will be opposed by right-hander Jordan Cooper (0-1, 1.64).
