Three Pelicans took the mound Tuesday.
All three tossed scoreless innings.
Cody Buckel, Kyle Hendricks and Randy Henry represented the Myrtle Beach Pelicans proficiently during the Carolina League’s 9-1 victory over the California League in the California League-Carolina League All-Star Game at BB&T Ballpark in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Buckel pitched in the second inning, struck out two, walked one and allowed one hit but didn’t factor in the decision. Hendricks tossed a no-hit seventh inning and struck out one for a no-decision. Henry struck out one in the eighth inning, and allowed two hits, but got out of a jam to earn a no-decision.
No players from Myrtle Beach’s offense were selected to participate in the game.
Many expected that Buckel would be the starting pitcher for the Carolina League. However, that wasn’t the case.
Winston-Salem’s Matthew Heidenreich got the nod instead. Heidenreich tossed one inning and gave up one run, the only run surrendered by the Carolina League.
Salem’s Jackie Bradley Jr., a University of South Carolina product, went 0 for 5 in the game but drove in a run and scored a run.
Lynchburg’s Tommy La Stella, a Coastal Carolina product, went 1 for 4 with one run scored and one run batted in.
The Carolina League pitchers held the California League to just five hits. The California League went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base.
