Pelicans swept by P-Nats; MB duo wins July awards

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans were shut out by the Potomac Nationals 7-0 on Sunday afternoon from Northwest Federal Field at Pfitzner Stadium.

The Nationals (59-49, 22-19) wasted no time against Pelicans (50-63, 16-27) starter Justin Steele (0-1) in the bottom of the first inning. Bryan Mejia, Luis Garcia and Ian Sagdal all notched consecutive singles to begin the game before Aldrem Corredor bounced into a run-scoring fielder’s choice to make it 1-0. Gacia then scored on a wild pitch, giving the P-Nats a 2-0 lead.

In the third, Potomac added on with a Corredor RBI double. He struck again with a two-run double in the bottom of the fourth as well to make it 5-0 Nationals.

Telmito Agustin blooped an RBI single into shallow left in the fifth to score Jakson Reetz and Mejia then plated Agustin with an RBI double of his own to put the margin at 7-0 Nationals.

Joan Baez (7-8) earned the win for the P-Nats with his five shutout innings and five strikeouts.

Zach Davis went 2-for-3 for the Pelicans in the loss.

The Pelicans begin a three-game series with the Winston-Salem Dash at 7 p.m. on Monday from BB&T Ballpark in Winston-Salem.

* Myrtle Beach Pelicans infielder Jared Young has earned the Chicago Cubs’ Minor League Player of the Month for July and pitcher Erick Leal has been named the Chicago Cubs’ Minor League Pitcher of the Month for July, the organization announced Sunday.

A native of Prince George, British Columbia, Canada, Young batted .350/.414/.510 (.924 OPS) in 27 games in July. He ripped four doubles and four home runs while posting 17 RBIs and reaching in all 27 contests. The 23-year-old began the month with Low-A South Bend, hitting .455 (10-for-22) in six games before his July 7 promotion to Myrtle Beach. With the Pelicans, he hit .321 (25-for-78) over 21 games.

Young was named the Cubs’ Minor League Player of the Month in June for South Bend as well, posting a .340/.393/.570 line with five homers and 27 RBIs in 27 games.

Playing in his first full professional season after being drafted out of Old Dominion in the 15th round of the 2017 draft, Young is slashing .303/.367/.499 through 95 games in 2018 between South Bend and Myrtle Beach. Young has improved from his first go-around in the minors after hitting just .257/.311/.336 for Short Season Low-A Eugene in 2017.

A native of Carabobo in Venezuela, Leal missed the entire 2017 season due to injury. In 2018, his dominance culminated in a brilliant July in which he did not allow an earned run over 22.2 innings. Through seven appearances, two starts, the righty went 1-0, only allowing two unearned runs on eight hits (.107 opponent batting average) while striking out 25 and walking one. Leal’s 0.40 WHIP was the lowest in all of Minor League Baseball over the month. He was also just one of two minor league pitchers to own a 0.00 ERA over the month.

The 23-year-old pitcher has accumulated a 1.10 ERA over 17 appearances, six starts, this season. Through his 49.0 innings, Leal has whiffed 46 while walking eight. Among pitchers who have thrown at least 40 innings in the Carolina League, Leal places first in ERA and WHIP (0.67) while ranking second in opponant batting average (.148).
