Pelicans sweep past Dash, open homestand with P-Nats

pel-bolingerThe Myrtle Beach Pelicans notched another win over the Winston-Salem Dash with a 6-3 series sweeping victory on Wednesday night at Pelicans Ballpark.

The Pelicans (25-13) got a single in the first but couldn’t strike against Dash starter J.B. Wendelken. The right-hander walked Royce Bolinger to begin the second, and the Pelicans manufactured a run. He got to second on a fielder’s choice, and Preston Beck brought him home with a liner to center field for the game’s first run.

Both pitchers posted zeroes in the third inning. Sam Wolff came in without a win in his last three starts but rebounded on Wednesday. He worked around a single in the first and double plays helped him out of the third and fourth innings.

Two two-out walks from Wendelken loaded the bases for the Birds in the fourth. Nick Williams smashed a 1-0 pitch to right center field for a bases clearing double. The Pelicans lead stretched to 4-0 on the hit, Williams’ third of the night. It was his first three-hit night as a Carolina Leaguer.

Wolff continued to roll through the Dash (13-24), notching three more shutout frames to get through the seventh, including perfect fifth and seventh innings. He entered for the eighth needing an out to set a new career in innings pitched.

Unfortunately for Wolff, he allowed back-to-back singles in the frame before Martin Medina smashed a two-run triple to right field. That was it for Wolff, who finished with seven innings, matching a career and season best, with seven hits and a strikeout, and for the first time this season, no walks.

Will Lamb entered with the tying run at the plate. Medina touched home on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Michael Johnson, cutting the lead to 4-3 and closing the book on Wolff who allowed all three of the Dash’s runs. Lamb blew away Tim Anderson with a swinging strikeout and got Jacob May to fly out to end the frame.

Myrtle Beach plated two big insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth. Chris Grayson scored on a Beck fielder’s choice, and Zach Cone drove in Beck with a rope up the middle. The two-run frame bloated the lead to 6-3 Pelicans.

Abel Del Los Santos walked the leadoff man but retired the next three men in the ninth for his first save of the season. The 6-3 final made a winner of Wolff (4-3), and saddled Wendelkin (3-4) with the defeat.

The Pelicans open a four-game set with the Potomac Nationals on Thursday night at Pelicans Ballpark.
