Pelicans’ win streak ends; playoff tickets go on sale

Mike Rucker struck out nine batters over six innings on Wednesday night, but the Myrtle Beach Pelicans fell 4-1 to the Winston-Salem Dash at BB&T Ballpark.

With the score tied at one in the third inning, Winston-Salem (49-74, 25-28) took their first lead of the game against Myrtle Beach (64-59,21-32). Jameson Fisher led off the frame with a double off the center field wall. Matt Rose then joined Fisher on-base with an infield single. With one out in the frame, a double steal and Pelicans error on the play allowed Fisher to score and Rose to advance to third. Louis Silverio made the tally 3-1 with an RBI single to left field, plating Rose.

With two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Yeyson Yrizarri singled to center field before scoring on an RBI double from Seby Zavala to make the score 4-1.

Rucker (4-4) yielded just three runs, two earned, on five hits in his six frames. The right-hander’s nine strikeouts came within one of a career-high, and he walked just one.

On the other side, Winston-Salem starter Alec Hansen (3-5) matched a career-high with seven innings, and the right-hander punched out 11 batters en route to his third win of the season with the Dash.

Myrtle Beach’s lone run of the contest came in the first inning. P.J. Higgins drew a one-out walk before stealing second base. Tyler Alamo , who had two hits, knocked home Higgins with a base hit a batter later, which gave the Birds an early 1-0 advantage.

With one out in the bottom of the first, Bryant Flete swatted a ground-rule double to left field. He scored with two outs in the frame on an RBI single from Fisher to tie the game at one.

Myrtle Beach and Winston-Salem will play the finale of their five-game set on Thursday at 7 p.m. from BB&T Ballpark.
