Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Class A) - 50-35

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans lost to the Columbia Fireflies 3-2

Myrtle Beach unfortunately wasted a Jackson Ferris start in this one and took the loss. They went down 2-0 in the fourth inning and were never able to bring it back to even, much less take the lead, as they fell to the Fireflies. 

Cristian Hernández (SS) went 2-for-3 with a home run, a single, two RBI and a run scored. 

Rafael Morel (CF) went 2-for-5 with two singles, his 12th stolen base and his 7th caught stealing of the season. He is very similar to his brother in that his booms our loud and his busts are equally as loud. 

Reivaj García (1B) went 3-for-5 with three singles and raised his average on the season to .287. 

Parker Chavers (OF) went 2-for-4 with a single, a triple and a run scored. 


Jackson Ferris (LHP) hasn’t been as hot since May but he went 3.2 innings and allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out five. I honestly believe he could potentially be the most talented player in the Cubs farm system.
