Pelicans take another loss to remain 0-for-second half

pel-Torrez

For the second consecutive game, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans  were trumped by the Winston-Salem Dash in an eighth-inning rally. Monday’s 2-1 loss is the Birds’ second one-run defeat in as many games at BB&T Ballpark, and the club has lost five straight contests to open the second half.

With the contest tied at 1-1, third baseman Trey Michalczewski sparked the comeback with a one-out single to right field in the eighth. After a strikeout and another single, right fielder Nolan Early cracked a go-ahead RBI single to left. It was his third hit of the game and proved be the eventual winning run.

With four consecutive wins to open the second half, the Dash (34-40, 4-0 second half) have now won five consecutive ballgames dating back to the final game of the first half, and they lead the Southern Division second half standings by 1.5 games.

The Pelicans (41-33, 0-5 second half) were the first to score on Monday night with a run in the top of the fifth. Daniel Lockhart ripped a single to right field to begin the inning, and he moved to second base on a ground out. Two batters later, Chesny Young smacked a go-ahead, two-out double to right field to move Myrtle Beach in front, 1-0.

Back-to-back singles opened the Dash sixth inning. Pelicans starter Daury Torrez stuck out the next batter, but catcher Jeremy Dowdy tied the game 1-1 when he slapped an RBI single to left. Dowdy matched a career-high with three hits in the ballgame. Torrez retired the next two batters with a strikeout and a fielder’s choice to end the inning and keep the game tied.

Torrez scattered seven hits across six innings of work but took no decision. He struck out a batter as part of a perfect first inning yet did not record his next strikeout until the fifth, when he retired all three batters on strikes. He fanned five of the final nine batters he faced, and finished his night with six strikeouts overall. He allowed just the one run, earned, and did not walk a Dash hitter.

Dash starter James Dykstra struck out five batters over six innings of work but also took no decision. Left-hander Andre Wheeler (3-2) picked up the win in relief.
