Twin homers help Pelicans salvage doubleheader split

Tyler Pearson and Zack Short both homered for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans in the final game of Friday’s doubleheader against the Salem Red Sox, as the teams split the twin bill with the Birds winning the finale by a final score of 4-1 following an 11-6 loss in game one from TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark.

With one out in the top of the first inning in game two, Jeremy Rivera reached on a bunt single before advancing to second on a wild pitch. Austin Rei followed Rivera with a walk before Rivera came in to score on an error by the Pelicans (58-53, 15-26) as the Red Sox (63-48, 23-19) jumped out to a 1-0 advantage.

Kyle Miller (3-3), though, was fantastic for Myrtle Beach, as the right-hander hurled five innings and did not allow an earned run.

With one out in the bottom of the second, Eddy Martinez singled to right field before Pearson socked his two-run homer to give Myrtle Beach the 2-1 advantage.

Short blasted the Pelicans’ second home run of the contest with a solo shot to left field, extending the Birds lead to 3-1 in the fifth inning.

Myrtle Beach tacked on their final run of the contest in the sixth inning when Adonis Paula dumped an RBI single into right field to plate Martinez, who had reached on a walk. That made the score 4-1.

Scott Effross slammed the door shut, as the right-hander tossed two scoreless frames while whiffing three en route to his fifth save of the season.
