Alamo hits three homers to lead sweep for Pelicans

The Pelicans’ offense slugged five home runs, including three from Tyler Alamo , in Saturday’s doubleheader, leading Myrtle Beach to 9-1 and 4-2 victories in a sweep of the twin bill over the Wilmington Blue Rocks at Frawley Stadium.

With Myrtle Beach (67-59, 24-32) and Wilmington (64-61, 25-30) scoreless after an inning, Tyler Pearson crushed a solo home run over the left field wall off Blue Rocks starter Cristian Castillo (6-11) to get the Birds rolling in game one.

With one out in the top of the third inning, Jesse Hodges reached on a walk before he stole second base. Alamo extended the Pelicans’ lead with a two-run home run to left field, making the score 3-0.

In the fourth, Zack Short swatted the Birds’ third home run of the contest with a solo home run to give the Birds their fourth run in as many frames.

Myrtle Beach starter Kyle Miller tossed four no-hit innings striking out a pair of batters in the contest.

Alamo kicked off the fifth inning with his second home run of the contest to give the Pelicans a 5-0 advantage. With one out in the frame, Pearson was hit by a pitch before advancing home on an RBI double from Adonis Paula.

Wander Franco broke up the Pelicans no-hit bid in the bottom of the fifth inning with an infield single. Travis Maezes followed Franco with a double to left field, putting two runners in scoring position. Wilmington’s lone run of the inning scored on a groundout from Nathan Esposito to make the tally 6-1.

In the finale, Connor Myers reached on a fielder’s choice before he advanced to third on an infield bunt single from Robert Garcia and Blue Rocks error. Short’s sacrifice fly brought in Myers to allow Myrtle Beach to strike first.

Nick Heath led off the Wilmington third inning with a single to right field before advancing to second on a base hit from Jecksson Flores. A passed ball allowed both runners to move into scoring position, Roman Collins grounded out to first base, allowing Heath to score. WIth the game tied at one, Brandon Downes lifted a sacrfice fly to right field, plating Flores to give the Blue Rocks their first lead of the day at 2-1.

The Blue Rocks lead was relenquished in the fourth as Alamo’s torrid day continued. Giambrone led off the frame with a base hit before Alamo launched a one-out, two-run home run over the left field wall to give the Birds their second lead of the contest at 3-2.

Myers led off the fifth inning with a base knock for Myrtle Beach. With one out in the frame, Myers swiped second base. P.J. Higgins  laced a two-out RBI single into center field to bring in Myers and double the Pelicans’ advantage over Wilmington to 4-2.

Pelicans’ game two starter Thomas Hatch (5-10) pitched five innings and ceded just two earned runs on six hits en route to his fifth win of the season. Pedro Araujo picked up his 10th save of the season with three strikeouts in two perfect frames.
