Robinson’s bat lifts Pelicans to series win over Mudcats

Drew Robinson hit a bases-clearing double in the sixth inning Sunday and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (9-7) earned their third straight win, beating the Carolina Mudcats 9-5 at Five County Stadium. Robinson and Royce Bolinger each drove in three runs as the Pelicans took three of four from the Mudcats, pulling into a first place tie in the southern division.

Right-hander Nick Martinez (2-1) took the win, allowing three earned runs on five hits over 5.1 innings. His counterpart, Jordan Cooper, took the loss (0-2), surrendering four earned runs on five hits over 5.2 innings.

The Pelicans scored seven runs in their final four offensive innings, coming from behind for a second straight game. The Robinson three-RBI double gave the Pelicans a 5-3 lead in the sixth. An inning later, Chris Grayson hit a solo home run to make it 6-3. After the Mudcats scored twice in the seventh, Royce Bolinger smacked his first home run of the season, a two-run shot off the scoreboard in left-center. A Jake Skole sacrifice fly in the eighth made it 9-5.

The two teams went back and forth in the early innings. After a leadoff double from Charlie Valerio, Tyler Naquin hit an RBI groundout in the third, tying the game 1-1. A half inning later, Bolinger hit a sacrifice fly, plating Rougned Odor and pushing the Pelicans back in front 2-1. In the last of the fourth, Anthony Gallas tied the game with an RBI single before Jordan Smith scored the go-ahead run on a 5-4-3 double play.

Randol Rojas relieved Martinez and allowed two earned runs on a hit over 1.2 innings. Phil Klein tossed two scoreless innings and hasn’t allowed a run in 10 innings this season.

Luis Sardinas, Trever Adams and Robinson all recorded two hits for the Pelicans.

All nine starters reached base for the Pelicans and seven of nine recorded at least one hit. Kellin Deglan drew four walks in the game for the Pelicans.

The Pelicans scored a season-high nine runs and have strung together a season-best three-game winning streak.

The Pelicans begin a seven-game home stand tomorrow featuring four games against Frederick (April 22-25) and three against Potomac (April 26-28). Right-hander Luke Jackson (2-0, 1.88) gets the start tomorrow and he will be opposed by Frederick’s righty Tyler Wilson (0-0, 6.46). First pitch is on tap for 7:05 p.m.
