Myrtle Beach Pelicans (A) (68-48)

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans beat the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers 6-5

The Pelicans had yet another walk-off win yesterday and it was possibly even more exciting than the win on Wednesday. Myrtle Beach entered the bottom of the ninth down by a run but they scored and forced extra innings. They gave up two runs in the top of the 10th but came around in the bottom of the 10th to score three of their own and came away victorious. 

Cristian Hernández (SS) went 1-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored. 

Pedro Ramirez (2B) went 1-for-1 with a double, two RBI and a run scored.

Brian Kalmer (DH) went 1-for-3 with his sixth homer since being drafted and added two RBI and a run scored. 

Luis Rujano (RHP) threw four innings and allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out three.
