Pelicans win another thriller; return to MB for twinbill

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans (72-50, 32-21) used 10 innings Friday to defeat the Carolina Mudcats 3-1 at Five County Stadium. The Pelicans took two of three from the Mudcats and finished the road trip 5-1.

Chris Grayson hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the tenth inning to give the Pelicans a 2-1 lead. Trever Adams capped the two-run rally with an RBI single.

Josh McElwee (2-1) earned the win out of the bullpen, firing 1.2 scoreless innings. He allowed a run in the ninth inning but it was charged to Cody Kendall. Righty Rob Nixon (3-5) took the loss, allowing both runs in the tenth inning.

The Pelicans carried a 1-0 lead into the ninth inning, but the Mudcats rallied to tie on an RBI infield single from Erik Gonzalez against a drawn-in infield. A play later, the Mudcats threatened to win it but Tony Wolters was thrown out at home trying to score on a safety squeeze.

Joe Maloney gave the Pelicans the lead in the seventh inning on an RBI double to left.

The Pelicans executed two important hit-and-runs in the game. A Trever Adams hit-and-run set up Maloney’s double in the seventh and Preston Beck’s hit-and-run set up Grayson’s sacrifice fly in the tenth inning.

Right-hander Alec Asher started for the Pelicans and took a no decision. The righty fired six scoreless innings and allowed just one hit. Asher struck out four in his first two innings and eight total in the game.

The Pelicans had just one hit entering the seventh inning before exploding in the late stages.

Odubel Herrera, Kellin Deglan and Beck each registered two hits in the game.

The Pelicans return home Saturday to take on the Lynchburg Hillcats at TicketReturn.com Field. The twin-bill will begin at 6:05 when the two teams resume a game that was suspended in the third inning back on June 30 at TicketReturn.com Field. The regularly scheduled contest will be a seven-inning game starting about 30 minutes after the conclusion of the continuation game.
