Deglan’s walk-off home run lifts Pelicans into first place

Kellin Deglan socked a three-run, walk-off home run Saturday and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (13-9) beat the Potomac Nationals 7-4 in front of 3,138 fans at TicketReturn.com Field.

The Pelicans remain in first place in the Southern Division and have drawn even in the three-game series with the Nationals.

The Pelicans carried a 4-0 lead into the eighth inning, but the Nationals scored four times and sent all nine men to the plate to tie the game.  Phil Klein (1-0) surrendered the eighth inning rally, but took the win, allowing four runs, three earned, on three hits over two innings. Richie Mirowski (1-1) allowed the Deglan home run and was saddled with his first loss of the season.

The Pelicans claimed a 1-0 lead in the second inning on an RBI double from Drew Robinson, who has hit safely in his last four games.

It was a sloppy game at times, with the two teams combining for six errors. Potomac committed three of their four errors during the Pelicans two-run second inning rally. A two-out throwing error from Potomac’s Justin Miller extended the Pelican’s rally in the ninth inning, keeping the inning alive for Deglan.

The Pelicans went up 4-0 in the fifth inning after Trever Adams scored on a wild pitch.

The Nationals threatened several times early in the game and left nine men on base in the game.

The Nationals loaded the bases with nobody out in the fourth inning but did not score. McBride struck out Kevin Keyes and got Adrian Sanchez to hit into a 4-6-3 inning-ending double play. The Nats threatened again in the sixth, putting runners on first and second, but Keyes again struck out and Sanchez flied out deep to left, ending the inning.

Royce Bolinger paced the Pelicans going 3-for-5 with a double.

Pelicans starter Luke Jackson exited the game after an inning and gave way to Nick McBride, who turned in four scoreless innings in his longest outing of the season. Righty Randol Rojas hurled two scoreless innings with three strikeouts.

It was the Pelicans first walk-off win since a 7-6 opening-night triumph against Wilmington.

The Pelicans and Nationals wrap up a three-game series tomorrow afternoon. First pitch Sunday is scheduled for 3:05 p.m. Left-hander Victor Payano (1-2, 4.50) takes the ball for Myrtle Beach and he will be opposed by Potomac right-hander A.J. Cole (0-1, 4.95).
