Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ game against Potomac Nationals suspended

mmckinnon@thesunnews.comJune 27, 2014 

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans were making quick work of the Potomac Nationals on Friday.

However, the game wasn’t completed.

The Pelicans were leading 6-3 in the bottom of the sixth inning, but after a 48-minute rain delay the game was suspended. As of press time Friday, the game had not been rescheduled.

Myrtle Beach countered Potomac’s one-run second inning by scoring four runs in the bottom half. Preston Beck hit a two-run home run with no outs and Chris Grayson and Chris Garia each hit RBI singles to cap the Pelicans’ big inning. Myrtle Beach added two more runs in the bottom of the third as Jorge Alfaro hit an RBI single and David Lyon drove in Alfaro on a double as the Pelicans took a 6-1 advantage.

The Nationals scored two runs in the top of the fifth to cut their deficit to three runs, but that was as close as Potomac would get before the game was called.

When the contest is resumed, the Nationals will be batting in the top of the fifth with Tejeda at second, Pleffner at first and Oduber batting with a 1-0 count. Ryan Bores was on the mound for the Pelicans. None of the stats from Friday’s game will be calculated until the completion of the game.

Fans with tickets to Friday night’s game can exchange those tickets for a ticket of equal or lesser value to any future Pelicans regular-season game during the 2014 regular season or beyond, subject to availability.
