Pelicans outlast Mudcats in 14 innings

Posted August 10

The Carolina Mudcats dropped their longest game of the year on Sunday as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans took home a 3-2 win in a 14-inning game that was the completion of Saturday’s suspended tilt. The Mudcats (23-25, 52-63) fell to 3-8 in extra-inning games. The Pelicans (28-21, 72-45) won their eighth straight on the road.

Josh Martin (4-6) suffered the loss after allowing the deciding run on two hits in the 14th. He walked one and struck out a batter in 2 1/3 innings of work. Abel De Los Santos (5-0) dealt four scoreless innings for the win. He allowed one base runner, a walk to Yandy Diaz in the 12th, and struck out three.

Preston Beck worked a walk against Martin to open the final stanza. He stole second before Martin fanned Royce Bolinger for the first out. Williams smashed a liner towards James Roberts that rocketed past the infielder before he could make the pick. The ball trickled into left-center as Beck scored to break the 2-2 stalemate.

The Mudcats opened the scoring in the second inning when Luigi Rodriguez launched a double to the wall in straightaway center that scored James Roberts from first base. The Pelicans quickly tied the game with two out in the third when Christopher Bostick beat out a single and scored on a double to left by Preston Beck.

Jeremy Lucas began the sixth with a single and scored on a triple by Alex Monsalve. Carolina's backstop lined a shallow hit into center where Lewis Brinson made a diving attempt. The center fielder whiffed on the catch and the ball rolled to the wall while Monsalve raced around the bases.

The Pelicans managed to even the score in the eighth without a hit. Michael Peoples issued consecutive walks with one out and was lifted for Jacob Lee. The right-hander induced a grounder to third, but Christopher Bostick beat the throw to first to keep the inning alive. Lee uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Luis Mendez to score from third.

The Mudcats begin a six-game road trip with the first of three in Myrtle Beach on Tuesday, August 12. First pitch against the Pelicans at TicketReturn.com Field is set for 7:05 p.m.
