Pelicans pound RiverDogs in Battle of the Beaches

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans used big offensive sixth and seventh innings Tuesday to rally by the Charleston RiverDogs 6-4 in the Battle of the Beaches exhibition game at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park in Charleston.

Trailing 2-0 in the sixth, the Pelicans’ bats woke up. Following the exit of RiverDogs starter Daniel Ramos, who struck out four over five shutout frames, D.J. Wilson and Jhonny Pereda walked to begin the frame. Two batters later, Wilson came in to score on a wild-pitch. Not long after, Tyler Alamo slammed a single up the middle to knock in Pereda and tie the game at 2-2.

In the seventh, the Birds’ offense exploded, thanks to more free passes from the RiverDogs’ bullpen. Andruw Monasterio and Aramis Ademan led off the inning with back-to-back walks before advancing into scoring position on a wild pitch. Pinch-hitter Connor Myers then smacked a 2-1 pitch back up the middle through a drawn-in infield to score both runners and give Myrtle Beach a 4-2 lead.

After a Pereda walk and a double steal, Wladimir Galindo, who went 2-for-2 with two RBIs and two walks, lined a base hit up the middle to knock in two more and make it 6-2 Pelicans.

The eighth inning brought bullpen woes for the Birds. Dalton Blaser banged in the first run with an RBI single before Leonardo Molina drove in the second run on a sacrifice fly to center. Molina was robbed of an RBI single by Myers, who made a diving catch on the play.

Wyatt Short threw to two batters in the ninth, recording an out and allowing Jason Lopez to reach on an error before being replaced by Jhon Romero. The right-hander earned the save by recording the final two outs.

Alex Lange received the start and, after a rocky beginning in the first inning, settled in to retire 11 of the last 13 batters that he faced. In the first inning, Lange allowed two runs on three hits, but just allowed one hit and a walk over the next four innings. He finished after five frames, yielding two runs on four hits while striking out five and walking one.

The Pelicans open the 2018 season against the Frederick Keys for the start of a four-game series at 7:05 p.m. Thursday.
