Winston-Salem rallies past Pelicans in seventh inning

pel-17Vimael Machin’s home run was not enough Friday as the Winston-Salem Dash rallied to defeat the Myrtle Beach Pelicans 4-3 from TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark.

With the score tied at three in the seventh, Winston-Salem (35-57, 11-11) pushed across a run off Myrtle Beach (51-40, 8-13) reliever Tommy Thorpe (3-3). Luis Basabe walked to lead off the frame for the Dash. With one out in the inning, Danny Mendick recorded an infield single before advancing to second base on a throwing error that also allowed Basabe to advance to third. Eloy Jimenez was intentionally walked with two outs in the frame to load the bases. Jameson Fisher was hit by the very next pitch to bring home Basabe and give the Dash the 4-3 advantage.

Dane Dunning was the starter for Winston-Salem, and the right-hander tossed five innings and allowed just two earned runs on eight hits. Zach Thompson (2-7) collected the win in the Dash’s victory as he pitched two scoreless innings and allowed only one hit. Kyle Kubat and Jack Charleston both worked a scoreless frame following Thompson. Charleston picked up his eighth save of the season after a spotless ninth to finish off Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach will play the finale of their four-game set with the Dash on Saturday at 7:05 p.m.
