Pelicans go to bat for fire victims, extend win streak

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans didn’t allow a run Wednesday night, but they did help others feel safe at home.

The Pelicans won their fourth straight game with a 3-0 victory over the visiting Carolina Mudcats, and it was their second straight night to host a fundraiser for the displaced residents of the recent fire at Windsor Green Apartments in Carolina Forest. The team gave a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales and a 50/50 raffle to the cause, as well as passing the hat for donations.

The Pelicans also honored a pair of heroes from the Windsor Green fire. Blake Cannon heard screams from the back of the building and ran to see a man dangling a toddler from the third-floor balcony. When Blake arrived, the father asked him to catch his boy, Cade. Blake caught the child safe and sound. The remaining family members (a 10 year old boy, father and mother) jumped from the balcony, and suffered broken bones. Cade threw out the first pitch and, fittingly, Blake made the catch.

It was the first of many strikes on the night as Tyson Miller tossed seven shutout innings for the Pelicans. Miller (3-2) worked seven innings for the first time in his career, only ceding three hits while striking out seven and walking one. Wyatt Short fired 1.2 frames for Myrtle Beach (11-15) while allowing just two base runners on walks and striking out four. Jhon Romero recorded the last out of the game to pick up his second save of the season. The blanking marked the first time the Pelicans had shut out an opponent in a nine-inning game.

The Birds jumped out in front in the bottom of the third inning against Carolina (11-15) starter Cam Roegner (2-1). Jhonny Pereda singled home Andruw Monasterio , who went 3-for-5, to make it 1-0 Myrtle Beach.

In the fourth, the Pelicans added on with a Chris Pieters RBI single to make it 2-0. Pieters ended his night 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.

Vimael Machin tacked another tally on the board for the Birds in the eighth with a bases-loaded walk to give him 21 walks and only 13 strike outs in 23 games-played this season. He has reached base in 16 straight games, the second-longest active streak in the Carolina League.

The win was the Pelicans’ season-high fourth in a row, securing the Birds’ third series victory in their last four sets. Myrtle Beach has won eight of their last 11 games.

The Pelicans vie for a sweep of Carolina in Thursday’s 7:05 p.m. contest.
