Robinson pounds four hits in Pelicans’ fifth straight win

Drew Robinson matched a career-high with four hits Monday and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (69-49, 29-20) rallied to topple the Frederick Keys 6-4 at Harry Grove Stadium in Frederick, Maryland.

The Pelicans trailed 3-1 entering the eighth inning, but the Birds rallied for three runs to take the lead. Preston Beck started the burst with a triple and scored on a Jake Skole RBI single. Robinson followed with a go-ahead two-run home run to right field, his sixth of the season.

Cody Kendall (1-1) took the win out of the bullpen for the Pelicans, tossing 2.2 scoreless innings. Miguel Chalas (1-3) gave up three runs in the eighth inning and took the loss despite firing  scoreless sixth and seventh innings. Michael Zouzalik allowed a run in the ninth inning but notched his first save.

The Pelicans unleashed a 13-hit offensive performance. In addition to four hits, Robinson knocked in three runs and scored another. Skole went 3-for-4 and scored three runs. Edwin Garcia posted a 2-for-5 performance.

The Pelicans took the early lead in the third inning on an RBI fielder’s choice from Trever Adams. The Keys strung together three straight runs including a two-run single from Tucker Nathans in the fourth inning.

Up 4-3 in the ninth inning, Myrtle Beach increased its lead on a solo home run from Odubel Herrera and an RBI double from Robinson.

Nick McBride started for Myrtle Beach and allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits over 4.1 innings. Josh McElwee struck out a pair during a scoreless eighth inning.

Big leaguer and former Pelican, Wilson Betemit, made a rehab appearance with the Keys and went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts.

The Pelicans will go for the series sweep Tuesday at Harry Grove Stadium. Right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez (0-0, 4.50) will be opposed by southpaw Tim Berry (8-6, 3.87). First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
