Myrtle Beach Pelicans (A)

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans beat the Fayetteville Woodpeckers 6-1

The Pelicans were good again today, now sitting three games over .500 on the season. They had three multi-hit performances and were busy on the basepaths stealing three bases in five attempts. All that being said, the thing we really cared about tonight was the pitching performance and we were not left disappointed.

Reivaj García (2B) went 0-4 with a walk and a stolen base. 

Moises Ballesteros (C) went 2-5 with two singles and two RBI.

Rafael Morel (SS) went 2-4 with two singles, a walk and a strikeout while playing SS. As long as he continues to hot potato around the diamond on defense he’s going to continue to get play on these recaps because I just find this fascinating.

Miguel Fabrizo (DH) went 1-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored.

Yeison Santana (2B) played in just his second game this season but went 3-4 with three singles, two RBI and a run scored. He did get caught trying to steal third base, but the hope is to knock some rust off and get back to using his speed as he’s stolen 36 bases in his minor league career. 

Jackson Ferris (LHP) hasn’t given up a run in his last two starts. He went three innings this time and only allowed one hit and didn’t walk anyone (although he did have a HBP) and struck out four. If Cubs fans are looking for a player to dream of, this is the one. If we’re in a position to buy at the deadline instead of sell, let’s make sure not to deal this guy away to the cross-town rivals along with a top IFA signing for a career middle-of-the-rotation innings eater. Not that I’m still bitter…
