Pelicans use back-to-back homers to blast past Salem

pel-28Adbert Alzolay yielded just one hit in six dominant innings and Eddy Martinez and Matt Rose hit back-to-back homers in a five-run seventh on Sunday to push the Myrtle Beach Pelicans to a 5-1 win over the Salem Red Sox at Haley Toyota Field at Salem Memorial Ballpark.

The Pelicans (23-21) had mustered just two hits against Salem (27-16) starter Shaun Anderson, who exited after six shutout innings. However, Martinez and Rose blasted back-to-back shots off Red Sox reliever Austin Glorius (2-1) with one out in the seventh to put Myrtle Beach up 2-1. Tyler Alamo followed with a single, Adonis Paula walked and then Andruw Monasterio singled to load the bases. Robert Garcia lined a base hit to right to knock in Alamo and Paula, increasing the Birds’ advantage to 4-1. A Bryant Flete RBI ground out padded the Myrtle Beach lead at 5-1.

Alzolay’s (4-1) only mistake was a solo home run by Chad De La Guerra in the fourth inning. The right-hander struck out eight against one walk to record his third straight start of at least six innings. He has a 2.09 ERA over his last seven starts.

Mike Rucker replaced Alzolay to toss a scoreless seventh inning. Pedro Araujo was perfect over the eighth and ninth frames to seal Myrtle Beach’s 5-1 win.

The Birds will vie for a series split in Monday’s 11:05 a.m. contest.
