The Myrtle Beach Pelicans – after dropping two straight to Frederick – had two walkoff wins during the week and put together a four-game winning streak. Four of the team's six games were decided by two runs or fewer.

Every Pelicans starter went at least six innings during the week, except Jeremy Null, who just missed the mark as he tossed 5 2/3 innings on Friday.

Myrtle Beach infielder Ben Carhart made a big impact in his first game back from a stint on the 7-day disabled list, going 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBIs, two runs scored and drew a walk during Friday's win over Frederick.

Meanwhile, Pelicans infielder Chesny Young still leads the Carolina League in batting average with a .329 mark.

Three Pelicans pitchers (Michael Heesch, Jonathan Martinez, Daury Torrez) are currently tied for third in total wins in the Carolina League with eight.

Top quote

“We battled the whole game. That's kind of the name of the game; when you get down, you just gotta keep battling and keep fighting and we did that until the last out. It was a really good win tonight for the guys and I think we've got a good stretch going here so hopefully we can keep things rolling.” - Pelicans reliever Josh Conway after Myrtle Beach's 3-2 walkoff win in 10 innings over Wilmington on Wednesday.
