Pelicans rally in 13th inning, close out victory over Keys

pel-baezThe Myrtle Beach Pelicans scored three runs in the 13th inning to outlast the Frederick Keys 5-4 in 13 frames Tuesday at NYMEO Field at Harry Grove Stadium.

With the score tied at two in the 13th, Andrew Ely led off the frame against Frederick (53-54, 17-20) reliever Ivan Hernandez (2-1) with a single. A fielder’s choice put Erick Castillo at first before Charcer Burks walked. Two batters later, David Bote lined an RBI single to center to give Myrtle Beach (58-51, 22-17) a 3-2 lead. Jeffrey Baez then brought in two insurance runs with a base hit to right, extending the advantage to 5-2.

The Pelicans would need all of that insurance in the bottom of the frame. Steve Wilkerson singled to begin the inning, coming into score two batters later on Aderlin Rodriguez’s double. An Austin Wynns single puts the tying run on base. Two batters after that, Jomar Reyes singled in Rodriguez to draw the Keys to within 5-4. With the tying run on third and the winning run on first, Myrtle Bead reliever James Norwood got Josh Hart to ground out to second to end the ballgame and pick up his first save.

At 58-51, the Pelicans find themselves at seven games above .500 for the first time since they were 26-19 on May 25. The Birds will vie for their first five-game winning streak tomorrow.

Frederick took the initial lead in the first on a Cam Kneeland sacrifice fly, but Myrtle Beach promptly tied it at one on Daniel Spingola’s first career home run in the second.

With a one-all knotting in the fourth, Bote doubled with one out and came into score on Bryant Flete’s RBI double two batters later.

However, the Keys were able to tie in the sixth. Wilkerson began the frame with a single, moved to second on an error and scored on Kneeland’s RBI single to make it 2-2.

From there, the bullpens dominated, with Myrtle Beach’s firing 7.1 scoreless frames. Craig Brooks (2-0) went two shutout to earn the win.

The Birds vie for a series sweep in Wednesday’s noon contest.
