Pelicans shutout in Game 2; hit road for Mills Cup finale

pel-garcia2The Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Texas Rangers, lost Game Two of the Mills Cup Championship Series 3-0 to the Potomac Nationals on Sunday night at TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark.

John Wooten hit the decisive three-run home run in the sixth inning to tie the best-of-five series at one game apiece. The remaining three games will be played on the road at Pfitzner Stadium, starting with Game Three on Tuesday night. Game Four and Game Five, if necessary, will take place at Pfitzner Stadium. The first pitch for Game Three is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Neither team scored in the first five innings. Nationals starter Dakota Bacus took a no-hitter into the fourth inning before allowing a leadoff single to Royce Bolinger. Pelicans starter Victor Payano retired 12 batters in a row from the second inning through the fifth inning.

The Nationals (3-1 in postseason) scored the game’s only runs in the sixth inning. Isaac Ballou and Tony Renda both reached on infield singles to start the inning. After Shawn Pleffner flew out, Cody Kendall entered the game in relief of Payano.

Wooten was the first man to face Kendall, and he drilled a three-run home run to left field to put Potomac up 3-0. The Nationals threatened to score more runs after Wooten’s home run when Randolph Oduber followed up with a single, but Khayyan Norfork grounded into a double play to end the threat.
