Posted August 14

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans scored a 1-0 win on Thursday night to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Carolina Mudcats at TicketReturn.com Field. The Mudcats (25-27, 54-65) finish 7-13 against the Pelicans (30-23, 74-47) for the season.

Adam Plutko (3-8) shouldered a tough loss after allowing one run on only two hits across seven innings. He struck out five and walked one. Sam Wolff (8-4) earned the win with five scoreless frames. He scattered three hits, one walk and whiffed five. Luis Parra recorded his first save by finishing the final the game with four hitless innings. He struck out five.

Nick Williams provided the only tally with a solo shot out to right field in the second inning. It was his 13th of the year.

Pitchers controlled much of the game’s second half. The only base runner allowed after the fourth inning was a one-out walk to Kellin Deglan in the eighth. The Pelicans finished by retiring 15 consecutive hitters.

The Mudcats begin a series against the Potomac Nationals on Friday night. First pitch at Pfitzner Stadium is set for 7:05 p.m.
